Ubisoft take their first No1 crown of the year as ‘Far Cry Primal’ breaks Activision Blizzard’s hold on top spot.
It’s a new look and a new launch window for the Far Cry series with Primal being the first to launch outside of Q4 since the original PC version in 2004. There’s also a second Top 3 debutant this week in the form of EA’s ‘Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2’ at No2. Sales for the series are up 31%, although the first in the series (2014) was a timed exclusive for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 at launch. ‘Fifa 16’ (-38%) remains at No3 for a third week, which means ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ (-51%) slips down to No4.
Familiar faces jostle for position in the Top 10 with last week’s debutant ‘Street Fighter V’ (-78%) the most notable mover down from No2 to No10. Outside the Top 10 3DS exclusive ‘Bravely Second: End Layer’ makes its mark at No12.
