Assassin’s Creed 3 tops UK Gaming chart
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
Assassin’s Creed 3 has topped the UK charts with the best sales of the series to date. It was the biggest launch in publisher Ubisoft’s history and the second biggest launch of any game in the UK this year (behind FIFA 13).
It doubled the launch week sales of Assassin’s Creed 2, and beat last year’s Revelations by over 117,000 copies.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted appeared fifth in the UK all-format charts – it could only manage the week’s fourth highest new entry. The Criterion-developed game was beaten by WWE 13 in third and Football Manager 13 in fourth.
FIFA 13 clung onto second, meanwhile.
PlayStation Vita spin-off Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation arrived in 14th place – the third biggest release for the system behind launch titles Uncharted: Golden Abyss and FIFA Football (counting physical copies at least – Chart-Track does not measure digital sales).
Medal of Honor: Warfighter, last week’s number one, fell to sixth. Forza Horizon, Skylanders Giants, Just Dance 4 and Dishonored made up the rest of the top ten.
