UK Sales Charts: Horizon Forbidden West Hunts Down a Number One Debut
Horizon Forbidden West has done very well for itself in its opening weekend. If the UK physical charts are anything to go by — and they are, otherwise, why bother reporting on it — people have been purchasing Guerrilla’s sequel in droves, putting it firmly in the number one slot. We’re not all that surprised, given PlayStation’s brilliant ad campaign for the game. An interesting thing to note is that the vast majority of sales have gone to the PS5 version, despite the PS4 version — with a free upgrade to PS5 — being a tenner cheaper.
Anyway, Forbidden West’s arrival has bumped everything else down a peg or two. Dying Light 2 is down a place, now in third, while FIFA 22 moves from number three to number five. Call of Duty: Vanguard has actually moved up a few spots, charging from 10th to seventh. Interestingly, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales almost climbs back into the top 10, moving all the way from 27th to 12th.
Here’s the latest top 10 in full:
