Released on Wednesday ‘Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’ ends Activision Blizzard’s run at the top, pushing ‘Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy’ (-10%) down to No3.
It becomes the 6th Playstation exclusive title to debut at No1 so far this year. Two long running sports franchises return this week with Codemasters’ ‘F1 2017’ new at No2 and EA’s ‘Madden NFL 18’ new at No4. Both titles perform respectably, almost matching the sales of last year’s editions. ‘The Escapists 2’ from Team 17/Sold Out is the only other new release to make the All Formats Chart. A new entry at No12, it is the first in the series to ever debut inside the Top 40 with a 379% increase in sales over the original’s launch week. A price promotion propels ‘Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition’ (+171%) back in to the Top 40 at No21, while ‘Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure’ (+157%) also returns to the Top 40 at No28, thanks to the launch of a Nintendo Switch version.
