The Elder Scrolls Online may have attracted plenty of controversy over the last year or so, but it's clear that legions of fans are seizing the opportunity to return to Tamriel. Zenimax' new MMORPG has launched straight into second place in the UK, despite only releasing on PC and requiring monthly subscriptions after the first 30 days. Matt has emerged fairly impressed from his first few days in the saddle, finding all the extra players more social than immersion-breaking. He'll deliver our full review in due time, ahead of the planned PS4 and Xbox One versions.
Sadly, TESO couldn't beat FIFA 14, which we're sick and tired of seeing in the charts. Yawn.
The bickering between inFamous: Second Son and Titanfall has shifted gears yet again, with Respawn's refreshing shooter climbing back above its PS4-exclusive nemesis, which drops from first to sixth. Dark Souls II and Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney continue their descent down the charts. We've got the full UK top ten after the break.
