Horizon Zero Dawn is Sony’s Best Launch Since Uncharted 4, Beats Breath of the Wild to UK No.1

Guerrilla Games’ open world epic Horizon Zero Dawn has become Sony’s biggest ever new IP on PS4, and the companies biggest launch since the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End last year.

The biggest UK chart battle of 2017 so far saw Horizon Zero Dawn come up against The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with Sony’s latest blockbuster IP clinching the No.1 spot by a comfortable margin.

Launching March 3rd, 2 days after the release of Horizon Zero Dawn, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild becomes Nintendo’s third best Zelda launch in the UK behind Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, with 78% of sales contributed to Nintendo Switch and 22% for Wii U.

4 Nintendo Switch launch titles are included in the top 40 with Nintendo’s party game 1-2 Switch debuting at No.4, Konami’s Super Bomberman R at No.7 and Just Dance 2017 re-enters the chart at No.24. Elsewhere, the retail release of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The New Frontier stats life at No.19.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare drops out of the top 10 entirely with Battlefield 1 holding on to the No.10 spot, last week’s No.1, For Honor falls 4 places to No.5.
