Critics have met Days Gone very welcoming, but it didn’t prevent the biker zombie apocalypse from climbing to the first line of sales in the UK and getting around a serious (and multiplatform!) competitor – Mortal Kombat 11.

We need to emphasize — we are talking only about physical copies and only in the UK.

As GamesIndustry.biz reports, the first sales of Days Gone were 27% lower than last year’s God of War. However, on the side of Kratos, there was already a familiar and popular franchise, and Days Gone is a new game, thanks to which its debut still looks impressive.

Mortal Kombat 11 started by 43.6% worse than Mortal Kombat X, but a little better than Injustice 2. The best sales of the MK11 were in the version for the PlayStation 4 – 71% of the total circulation. Don’t forget that worldwide launch of the latest Mortal Kombat was the best in the history of the series – at least, as the publisher Warner Bros claims.

In general, GamesIndustry.biz calls sales in the reporting week “leisurely”: most games have been sold less than in the previous week. For example, the leader of the previous chart, World War Z, collapsed by 70% and now has caught only in tenth place. But there are also upgrades – Metro: Exodus grew by 130% thanks to a discount in retail and in the current list it took the 14th place.

Reporting week ended April 27. Ten leaders look like this (in brackets – the place a week before):

  1. Days Gone
  2. Mortal Kombat 11
  3. FIFA 19 (2)
  4. Red Dead Redemption 2 (5)
  5. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (3)
  6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (4)
  7. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (8)
  8. Forza Horizon 4 (16)
  9. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (10)
  10. World War Z (1)
