Our coverage of the weekly UK sales charts has been somewhat unreliable over the past month, which is representative of how few talking points it generally brings to the table. Without digital sales taken into account, the stats can only tell us so much. Still, Dying Light 2 was the biggest release last week, and it came closest to taking first place off Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Techland's open world follow-up debuted in second, selling best on PlayStation 5. 54 per cent of boxed copies shifted in the UK were for the PS5 version, while another 19 per cent were on PS4. However, the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection suffered a sharp drop in sales. A 70 per cent decrease saw it plunge from fifth down to 21st. Elsewhere, the UK sales charts are business as usual: Nintendo titles dominate and the rest of the top 10 is made up of FIFA 22, Grand Theft Auto V, and Call of Duty: Vanguard.
In a Push Square poll conducted over the weekend, 28 per cent of you told us you'd either pre-ordered Dying Light 2 or picked it up on launch day.
Here's the latest top 10 in full.
