God of War holds firm as Destiny 2 makes re-entry in this week's UK Charts


Can’t get enough of the boy

For the most part, this week saw little change in the premier spots of the UK video game charts. Sony’s smash-hit God of War, as we all knew it would, continues to hold a lock on the number one slot, followed by Nintendo’s Donkey Country Country: Tropical Freeze at number two and the seemingly unshakeable Far Cry 5 at number three.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 continues to enjoy a resurrection in the wake of big-screen blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, while Ubisoft’s Egyptian adventure Assassin’s Creed Origins also found its way back into the big leagues.

Activision’s sci-fi epic Destiny 2 has also found itself back in the Top Ten for the first time in a long time. The space-shooter has obviously been scooped back off the shelves by returning fans keen to check out recent expansion Warmind. Take-Two’s Grand Theft Auto V, already bored of spending one week outside the Top Ten, returned at number nine.

Elsewhere in the charts, open-world bloodbath Conan Exiles debuted at number 13, and re-entries were made by Forza Horizon 3, Horizon: Zero Dawn and a huge return for Sony’s Shadow of the Colossus remake, which leapt from number 38 to number 15.
