Wreckfest PS4 PlayStation 4

The summer games drought is over, everyone. After weeks of almost no activity in the UK's physical chart, several notable titles drop all at once. Surprise surprise, they're all right at the top, with Nintendo's Astral Chain taking first place.

It had its work cut out, though, with Wreckfest, Man of Medan, and Control also vying for a chart-topping debut. These three games ended up in second, third, and fourth respectively, meaning all the key new releases are bunched up at the top. It means everything else gets shunted down; Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled spins out to sixth, Grand Theft Auto V is knocked down to ninth, and Red Dead Redemption 2 falls out of the top 10 and into number 12. Marvel's Spider-Man, meanwhile, enjoys a big leap in sales thanks to a price drop, crawling up from number 34 to number eight. It's nice to have something to talk about again.

Here's the latest top 10 in full.
