Ubisoft has once again proven that it's the master of sleeper hits, as its Ghost Recon: Wildlands has secured the largest launch of the year so far. It didn't feel like there was anywhere near the same anticipation for the co-op shooter as the likes of Horizon: Zero Dawn or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but it's sitting pretty at the summit of the UK best sellers list.
Of course, the game is available on multiple platforms, so that definitely helps. According to Chart-Track, the game enjoyed the second best debut ever for a title sporting the moniker Tom Clancy; only The Division did better. That's… Honestly quite a surprising statistic as far as we're concerned.
Elsewhere, Horizon: Zero Dawn continued to sell well in second, while LEGO Worlds entered in third. Grand Theft Auto V hijacked fifth, just above newcomer NieR: Automata which entered in a respectable sixth. FIFA 17, Rocket League, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare rounded out the top ten – and that's all she wrote this week.
