Saber and Focus Home Interactive's zombilicious shooter World War Z is off to a great start in the UK, with its physical sales cutting short Ubisoft's two-week stint on the top with The Division 2, which has dropped down to third place.

Many eyes are currently fixated on World War Z, with a large chunk of them seemingly hoping the game will fail, just so they can gloat over big bad Epic's failures, but so far it isn't happening.

Granted, there was an 80 per cent drop in viewership just two days after the game launched , but these metrics are just about as reliable as crystal balls. We guess we'll know soon enough.

The Division 2 has taken a tumble down to third place after two weeks at the helm. Ubisoft's game took a 32 per cent hit in sales, which is almost impressive considering it's in its third week.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to stay in second place, as FIFA 19 made it its own it seems. There were some Easter discounts as well, which saw FIFA 19 sales jump by 47 per cent, and knowing EA's football simulator - it'll keep huffing and puffing until it's back in the first place.

The rest of the list is mostly a reshuffled version of the last week's chart, with everyone sliding down one spot to make room for the new winner.

As far as new entries to the top 10 go, the second and last newcomer this week is Snooker 19: The Official Video Game, which came in ninth place.

As for the rest, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Red Dead Redemption 2 and pretty much all the rest have performed pretty neutrally, i.e. there were no substantial dips or increases.

Of course, we're talking about physical sales here only, so do take that into account before making any bets. The rest of the list is as follows:

  • World War Z
  • FIFA 19
  • Tom Clancy's The Division 2
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Assassin's Creed Odyssey
  • Yoshi's Crafted World
  • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
  • Snooker 19: The Official Video Game
