Activision's ever-popular first person shooter series might be wearisome with its annual releases, but never underestimate its popularity. Call of Duty: Vanguard debuts in the UK's boxed game chart at the very top, knocking FIFA 22 off its perch after multiple weeks as number one. The WWII shooter looks to be another successful entry, and Sony's ongoing marketing strategy with the brand continues to pay dividends. In Vanguard's first appearance on the chart, it's selling best on PlayStation 5, taking up 41 per cent of the share.
A little further down, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales has crawled back into the top 10 at number five. It seems to be Sony's most reliable release — whenever PS5 consoles hit the shelves, this is almost always the game that floats back up. Anyway, just below it is another superhero title, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy in sixth.
A new physical version of Fortnite called the Minty Legends Pack shakes things up, debuting in ninth, and Far Cry 6 finishes things off in 10th position. For those of you awestruck by Grand Theft Auto V's longevity in the UK's charts, you'll be interested to know it's currently 15th, which is as low as we've seen it for some time. With the GTA Trilogy remaster collection almost here, though, Rockstar's far from out of the race.
Here's the latest top 10 in full.
