Sony’s PS4 exclusive Days Gone has finished top of the UK physical games chart for the week ending May 11, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. Bend Studio’s post-apocalyptic title has now finished top of the all-format chart for three weeks in a row.

In another quiet week for new releases, much of the chart paints a familiar picture. The top six are entirely unchanged, with Mortal Kombat 11 and FIFA 19 remaining in No.2 and No.3, respectively. The only new entry in the top 40 is the Nintendo Switch version of Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package, which debuts at No.15.

Days Gone’s continued chart success comes despite a mixed critical reception, including a 5/10 from GameSpot. “I did a lot of things in Days Gone,” said Kallie Plagge in our Days Gone review. “I burned every single Freaker nest; I cleared every ambush camp; I maxed out my bike; I took out a few optional hordes just because. Like Deacon with Sarah, I kept going because I hoped to find something, to follow a thread to a possibly fascinating or satisfying or impactful conclusion. But at the end of it all, I’d only gotten scraps.”
