Spider-Man Becomes UK’s Fastest Selling Game Of The Year


Marvel’s Spider-Man only swung its way into the UK charts on September 7th, but it is already at the top and breaking records.

Peter Parker has beat out Kratos and Joseph Seed to claim the title of fastest selling game of 2018 in the UK.

It beat out Far Cry 5 and managed to double the sales of Sony’s previous blockbuster exclusive God Of War, according to a report from gamesindustry.biz.

This isn’t the only record to be broken either. Whilst we don’t have exact numbers, the report also states that Spider-Man is the fastest selling Marvel game ever, toppling LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, a smash hit in its own right.

Yet, it didn’t quite meet the mark of Batman: Arkham Knight, which still sits as the UK’s fastest selling superhero game of the generation.

Dragon Quest XI put up a good fight, landing at number 2 despite being available on multiple platforms. Destiny 2: Forsaken debuted at number 8, but keep in mind this report only takes into account boxed sales.
