‘Injustice 2’ follows in the footsteps of its predecessor ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ by making No1 in the All Formats Chart in its launch week.
It is Warner’s first No1 of 2017 and the first ‘beat em up’ to reach No1 since ‘Mortal Kombat X’, also developed by NetherRealm and published by Warner, back in W18 2015. Sony’s new VR title ‘Farpoint’ debuts at No2, making it the highest position a ‘VR required’ title has ever reached in the All Formats Chart, surpassing ‘Playstation VR Worlds’ – which debuted at No7 in W41 2016. ‘Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia’ from Nintendo hits No5 in its launch week, while Focus Home Interactive’s new title ‘The Surge’ debuts at No10, forcing ‘Lego Worlds’ out of the Top 10 for the first time since its release, slipping to No11. A final new entry in the All Formats Top 40 goes to 505 Games with ‘Portal Knights’ in at No30. Several older titles re-enter the chart thanks to a retailer’s huge clearance sale, most notably ‘Skylanders Superchargers’, back in at No20 and ‘Destiny: The Collection’ back in at No31.
