Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown made a safe landing last week, and it's off to an impressive start in the UK chart. Though it misses out on the top spot, Bandai Namco will be happy with its second place debut, particularly as it comes with news of the biggest UK launch in the series' history. According to GamesIndustry, the PS4 version of the game saw 76% of the total sales, presumably in part due to the PSVR support included. As always, it's important to remember that this is only representative of physical sales.
Elsewhere, the chart is pretty standard fare. Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 are still up there in third and fourth place respectively, while FIFA 19 drops into fifth and Battlefield V slips out of the top 10, settling for 18th. The next couple of weeks should stir things up a bit as Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts III join the fray.
