Top 10 UK Games Chart: World War Z Takes No.1 In Debut Week

Top of the chartz.


PS4, Xbox One, and PC shooter World War Z has made a strong start in the UK games chart, finishing top in its debut week. Sales monitor Chart-Track says the co-op game, which is set in the same universe as the 2013 film of the same name, sold more physical copies than any other title in the UK for the week ending April 20. That's despite the PC version not even receiving a boxed edition in the UK.

Below Saber Interactive's zombie game, FIFA 19 holds its place at No.2--a position it has now held for three consecutive weeks. The Division 2, however, falls two places to No.3 this week.
