Ghost Recon: Wildlands Somehow Still Best Selling Game In the UK, GTA V Remains Immortal
This is a bit of a surprise to us. How many people do you know still play Ghost Recon: Wildlands?
Nobody’s knocking Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands here. We gave it a solid review, praising its gameplay while criticising the lack of shine and hoping it does well for the future, but it’s strange to see it still selling so well a month after release.
Despite it not being talked about that effusively or even having much buzz, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands has managed to hold onto the top spot for a second successive week in the UK game sales charts, adding to two weeks in the past it dominated. It’s helped by there being no huge new releases for it to compete against with the immortal GTA V, a game originally released in 2013, proving to be its main competitor and still holding strong in second place.
Here’s the sales chart for the last week in full:
1. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
2. GTA V
3. FIFA 17
4. LEGO Worlds
5. Rocket League
6. Horizon: Zero Dawn
8. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
9. Mass Effect: Andromeda
10. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Yooka-Laylee falls out of the chart with Horizon: Zero Dawn jumping back in. FIFA 17, despite now being free on EA Access, remains in the top five. Mass Effect: Andromeda has also had a small sales surge, creeping back into the top ten. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild rounds out the list.
Here’s an excerpt from our 7/10 review of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands:
“Despite the minor and not so minor technical hiccups that can briefly stymie the experience, Ghost Recon Wildlands is the most fun I have ever had in a multiplayer game and the glitches, while frustrating, never served to hamper my fun for more than a few minutes.”
