Back 4 Blood PS5 PS4

Last week's biggest new release was Back 4 Blood, a new co-op zombie-'em-up from the creators of Left 4 Dead. Turtle Rock is clearly a fan of the number four, so the studio will be pleased to see its new game has debuted in the perfect spot on the UK's physical chart: fourth. It faced stiff competition with FIFA 22, Far Cry 6, and Nintendo exclusive Metroid Dread making up the top three, so we'd say that's a good result.

Elsewhere, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales swings back into the top 10, making a leap from 14th all the way up into sixth place. There was a similar surge for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which didn't chart at all last week but is now in 12th. We can probably attribute both boosts to more PS5 stock coming into UK retail. If the anime fans among you are wondering, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles just missed out on a top 10 debut, placing 11th underneath the absolute behemoth that is GTA 5.

Here's the latest top 10 in full.
