In a calmer week for new game releases, perhaps the biggest surprise in the UK's physical games chart is the return of a modern classic. Yes, Elden Ring is back in the top 10, leaping from 20th all the way up to third, mixing in with the heavy hitters. It's unclear if this is simply down to a price reduction, or if Shadow of the Erdtree has got everyone fired up, but there it is. Above it are EA Sports FC 24 in first and Hogwarts Legacy in second, as you'd expect.

Helldivers 2, meanwhile, has finally seen a decrease in physical sales. It's been in the top 10 since launch, but has now dropped out, moving from seventh to 14th. Going in the opposite direction is Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, moving from 11th to fifth. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown shifts down once place to ninth, and filling its old space is LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which force jumps to eighth all the way from 21st.

Here's the latest physical top 10 in full.
