Days Gone Is the Biggest Launch So Far This Year in the UK, Overtaking Mortal Kombat 11

Days Gone finishes in top position in physical sales this year so far in the UK as Mortal Kombat 11 takes a back seat

In just three days since its launch last Friday 26 April exclusively on PS4, Days Gone is currently the biggest physical sales launch of the year so far in the UK. Even though the initial reviews from critics were a mixed bag, that hasn’t stopped the open-world, apocalyptic title from riding into the top spot, leaving Mortal Kombat 11 which released on April 23, in its dust. In saying that though, Days Gone still falls 27% lower of PS4-exclusives like God of War and Spider-Man.

Here is this week’s top 10 in the UK:

  1. Days Gone
  2. Mortal Kombat 11
  3. FIFA 19
  4. Red Dead Redemption 2
  5. The Division 2
  6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  7. Sekiro
  8. Forza Horizon 4
  9. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
  10. World War Z

At launch, Days Gone seemingly had a rocky start with some players reporting that the title had a host of issues like framerate drops, bugs, glitches, and crashing problems. Thankfully, an update was released to try and solve these issues so players could have a smoother level of play but, unfortunately, it didn’t fix the audio bug for some players where they couldn’t hear what was happening around them – really not good when you’re surrounded by Freakers – and also lines of dialogue in certain cutscenes and missions were missing.

Hopefully, this will be ironed out in time for the free Days Gone DLC that’s arriving in June that makes way for a new difficulty mode called Survival. This mode will obviously be quite difficult and you won’t be able to use fast travel, survival vision, or use your map and other markers from your HUD.

If you have yet to purchase Days Gone and want to make up your own mind about the title, you can jump on over to Amazon and grab yourself a copy.
