Call of Duty WWII is still holding on to the first place of the UK retail sales chart. Star Wars Battlefront II debuts at number two with Bethesda’s Switch version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim all the way down at a flimsy number 26.

One entire week of EA madness is behind us and this one also looks like it forgot breaks are a thing. The microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II are turned off for now but we all know it's not going to last very long. The whole ordeal has had a negative effect on the game's sales, and that landed Battlefront II on the second place in this weeks sales chart.

Today marks the third week in a row Call of Duty: WWII has held on to its number one spot. The third spot now belongs to FIFA 18. Nintendo's Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon debuted at numbers four and five, respectively. Thank goodness for that, otherwise someone's OCD would be having a moment right about now.

Assassin's Creed Origins made room for the new releases by dropping from number three down to number six. Still, EA’s The Sims 4 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One debuted at number seven. L.A. Noire Remastered for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch began its life at number eight on this week sales chart.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One rounds off the top 10. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR debuted at number 19. It had the most successful 3rd party week 1 launch for a VR-required title on PS4. Bethesda’s Switch version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the last of the new releases within the Top 40, debuting at number 26.
