Injustice 2 Debuts at No.1 on UK Sales Charts This Week; PlayStation VR Exclusive Farpoint No. 2

PS4 and Xbox One game Injustice 2 from NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. tops UK Sales Charts.

The 20th week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in, and unlike last week, Bethesda’s immersive sim Prey is no longer top dog: rather, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Injustice 2 now holds the crown.

That’s right, just like its predecessor — Injustice: Gods Among Us — Injustice 2 from publisher Warner Bros. and developer NetherRealm Studios has debuted at No.1  in the All Formats Chart in its launch week.

Injustice 2 marks Warner Bros.’ first No.1 in 2017 and is notably the first fighting game to hold the honor since NetherRealm’s last game: Mortal Kombat X (Week 18, 2015).

Elsewhere on the charts, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Impulse Gear debuted at No.2 with their new PlayStation VR exclusive title: Farpoint. In the process, Farpoint has become the highest ranking  “VR required” title of all-time. The previous holder was PlayStation VR Worlds, which debuted at No.7 in W41 2016.

Rounding out the top five is the ever-present GTA V from Rockstar at No.3, last week’s No.1 Prey at No.4, and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia at NO.5, another new debut.

Speaking of new debuts: Focus Home Interactive’s new title The Surge, a sci-fi take on the Bloodborne/Dark Souls formula, came in at No. 10. And the last new entry in the Top 40 was 505 Games’ Portal Knights, which came in at No.30.

Notably, LEGO Worlds was forced out of the Top Ten for the first time since its launch back in early March.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 20 2017 (the week ended on May 20th):
