UK Charts 01/04/18: Far Cry 5 Is Number One

Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5 has gone straight in at number one becoming the biggest launch of a Far Cry game to date, the biggest seller ever in week 13 thrashing Bioshock Infinite, and also the biggest launch of the year so far. It’s bigly, as a certain President would say.

With Easter promotions all over the high street games are whizzing around the charts in all sorts of directions. Last week’s #1, Sea of Thieves, drops to third place, while Forza 7 springs from nowhere back in to the charts, as does GT Sport and Uncharted: Lost Legacy. PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds  for Xbox One is another big winner (chicken dinner) with a 98% sales increase.

  1. I am not surprised. It’s a juggernaut of a franchise but it’s also a damn good game. I’ve sunk dozens of hours into it, haven’t even ventured into the third region yet, and still have loads to do in the two I have. And then there is Arcade on top of that.

    I do find the story a bit slow and the cutscenes drag like crazy, the Seeds need to talk faster, but ignore that and the rest is brilliant. Some of the side missions like the Testicle Festival (or Testy Festy) are just stupid fun.

    • Oh and any game where a Shovel is the best weapon has to be admired.
