A close race.

Horizon Zero Dawn has managed to reach the top of the UK game charts despite fierce competition from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Last week was an exciting time for gamers as both the highly anticipated Horizon Zero Dawn was released as well as Nintendo’s new Switch console with the equally anticipated launch title Breath of the Wild.

Reviews for both Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn have been highly positive but it seems it’s the PlayStation 4 exclusive which has managed to take the top spot. Breath of the Wild comes in second whilst Grand Theft Auto V comes in third. 1-2 Switch is in fourth place and For Honor brings up the rear in fifth, The top 20 are as follows:


  1. Horizon Zero Dawn
  2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. 1-2 Switch
  5. For Honor
  6. FIFA 17
  7. Super Bomberman R
  8. Rocket League
  9. Sniper Elite 4
  10. Battlefield 1
  11. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  12. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  13. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
  14. Hitman: The Complete First Season
  15. Halo Wars 2
  16. Forza Horizon 3
  17. Overwatch
  18. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  19. The Walking Dead: A New Frontier
  20. WWE 2K17

As you can see, the big releases last week have done a lot to shake up the charts. It’s impressive to see Grand Theft Auto V has managed to take third place. Not bad for a game originally released in 2013. This week will see the release of several big titles including Nier Automata and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Wildlands. Will either of these games be able to take the top spot from Horizon?
