Against all odds, Dead Island 2 is now available after passing through development hell, and it’s turned out pretty good. It seems the UK is onboard for the gory zombie-slaying action, as it has debuted at number one in the physical chart. Of those boxed copies, it sold 68 per cent of them on PS5. It’s a great start for a game that took the best part of a decade to make.
Elsewhere, a couple of other new releases have forced the usual suspects down. Minecraft Legends also has a strong debut at number two, while Nintendo’s Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp lands in third. Their arrival means everything is lower — FIFA 23, Hogwarts Legacy, Resident Evil 4, and God of War Ragnarok move to fifth, seventh, eighth, and 10th respectively.
Here’s the latest top 10 in full.
