Far Cry Primal debuts at top of Ukie Games Chart

Far Cry Primal

Ubisoft take their first No1 crown of the year as ‘Far Cry Primal’ breaks Activision Blizzard’s hold on top spot.  It’s a new look and a new launch window for the Far Cry series with Primal being the first to launch outside of Q4 since the original PC version in 2004. There’s also a second Top 3 debutant this week in the form of EA’s ‘Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2’ at No2. Sales for the series are up 31%, although the first in the series (2014) was a timed exclusive for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 at launch. ‘Fifa 16’ (-38%) remains at  No3 for a third week, which means ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ (-51%) slips down to No4. Familiar faces jostle for position in the Top 10 with last week’s debutant ‘Street Fighter V’ (-78%) the most notable mover down from No2 to No10. Outside the Top 10 3DS exclusive ‘Bravely Second: End Layer’ makes its mark at No12.
