Ghost Recon: Wildlands biggest launch of the year so far

While Horizon, Zelda continue to sell strongly.

Ubisoft open-world shooter Ghost Recon: Wildlands is the biggest-selling launch of the year so far.

Falling with style.

Wildlands is also the second-biggest launch for any game with the vague Tom Clancy moniker attached - which covers everything from Ghost Recon to Rainbow Six: Siege to Splinter Cell. The only Tom Clancy game launch it didn't outsell? The Division.

PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn, 2017's previous biggest launch, continued to sell well in second place.

Lego Worlds, the toy company's take on Minecraft, stacked up well in third.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild was fourth, meanwhile - a positive sign people are still buying Switch.

The other new entry this week, Nier Automata, arrived in sixth, behind GTA 5.

Here's the full top 10:

  1. Ghost Recon: Wildlands
  2. Horizon
  3. Lego Worlds
  4. Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  5. GTA5
  6. Nier Automata
  7. FIFA 17
  8. Rocket League
  9. 1-2 Switch
  10. COD: Infinite Warfare
