Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon Dominates UK Retail Charts as Immortals of Aveum Lags Behind

FromSoftware’s newest release, Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, clinches the top spot in the latest UK retail charts, outpacing competitors like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and FIFA 23. Meanwhile, Immortals of Aveum makes a lukewarm debut at No. 21.

Gamers received a new gem last week with the release of FromSoftware’s mech action title, Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon. According to data from Gfk (via GamesIndustry), the game shot straight to No. 1 in the UK’s physical software sales charts. Most notably, 64% of the physical copies were sold on the PS5 platform, suggesting a solid affinity among PlayStation fans.

In contrast to Armored Core 6, Immortals of Aveum had a less stellar debut. The game’s moderate critical reception likely contributed to its No. 21 chart position. This disparity highlights the importance of favorable reviews in the gaming market’s current landscape.

Intriguingly, a string of older games returned into the limelight. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt soared, landing it at No. 9, thanks to a 45% increase in sales following a deal on the PC version. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga also came back at No. 6, buoyed by a 145% surge in sales, courtesy of a PS5 bundle.
