Eden’s Gate gathers more converts in this week’s UK Charts

And yer boy Crash Bandicoot is back

This week’s UK Charts saw very little change, with more than half of the Top Ten’s entries maintaining their slot from last week. Leading the charge was Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5, which is selling by the bucketful, EA’s FIFA 18 and Microsoft’s swashbuckling Sea of Thieves, which all held their premier positions firmly.

Realism-based racer Forza Motorsport 7 managed to climb a few places to break back into the Top Five, while re-entries were made by Nintendo Switch mega-hit Super Mario Odyssey and perennial favourite Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy.

Elsewhere in the charts, EA’s controversial Star Wars Battlefront II made a huge re-entry, reappearing in the Top 40 at number 16. Bethesda’s DOOM and Fallout 4, which perpetually feature as a part of in-store sales, also both managed to push back into the Top Twenty, proving themselves two of the most consistently selling titles of recent years.
