The controversial Star Wars: Battlefront 2 has debuted at No.2 in the UK Top 40.
It’s not yet clear how sales compared to that of its predecessor, although note that the first Battlefield charted at No.1 in November 2015 and boasted the largest ever UK launch for a Star Wars title.
Instead, Call of Duty: WWII charts at No.1 for the third week in a row, with EA’s FIFA 18 again sitting at No.3.
Nintendo’s new duo of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon enter the listings at No.4 and No.5 respectively, while Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Origins drops three places to No.6 ahead of two new entries – EA’s The Sims 4, which arrives on consoles, and Rockstar Games' (Take-Two) LA Noire Remastered, at No.7 and No.8 respectively.
Super Mario Odyssey drops another three places this week to No.9, while the Top 10 is rounded off with another new entry – LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.
At No.19 there’s a debut for Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, whose performance claims the title of best-ever week one for a third-party VR title. The strongest ever VR week one is still claimed by Sony’s PlayStation VR Worlds, which itself re-enters the charts at No.21. The Switch version of Skyrim debuts at No.26.
