Horizon: Zero Dawn Tops UK Sales Charts as Best Launch of a New IP

You may know from our recent review of Horizon: Zero Dawn that it’s a damn fine video game. Opinion seems pretty much unanimous on the fact and now there’s some figures to back it up. Guerilla Games awe inspiring open-world title has taken number one slot in the UK sales charts in its release week and simultaneously broken the record for the UK’s best launch of a new IP on the PlayStation 4, set last year by No Man’s Sky. The news is particularly impressive as the highly anticipated Nintendo Switch launch title Zelda: Breath of the Wild also featured on the list, coming in at number two despite much hype around last week’s launch.

Other significant entries included fellow Switch launch title 1-2 Switch, with GTA V still making strong sales, this pushes Ubisoft’s recent melee brawler For Honor down into fifth spot. The rest of the top ten looks like this,

  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

No surprises for the rest of the chart but great to see a new IP performing strongly. Hopefully an indicator that there’s more to come from this interesting new universe.
