Devil May Cry 5 PS4 PlayStation 4

We all know Capcom's over-the-top actioner Devil May Cry 5 is brilliant, and it turns out British gamers think so too. The acclaimed sequel has brought the series back into the limelight atop the physical chart, a feat not achieved by the series since the divisive DmC: Devil May Cry from Ninja Theory. According to GFK, the game sold 20,872 copies at retail.

A new game at number one means ANTHEM has been knocked off its perch, and EA's loot shooter falls into fourth place. Far Cry: New Dawn and Metro: Exodus are also lower down the top 10 at number six and number nine respectively. Meanwhile, Red Dead Redemption 2 leaps back up to second position. Left Alive was the only other new release to enter the top 40, and it did so just barely, making a disappointing debut at number 39.

Here's the latest top 10 in full.
