Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, the first-person shooter developed by Treyarch and published by Activision Blizzard, has managed to conquer the number one position in the United Kingdom video game chart during its first week on sale, ending the short-lived reign of Halo 4.Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has managed to become the biggest selling video game of the year in the country, according to the data compiled by UKIE, and the very popular multiplayer mode, which has been redesigned by Treyarch, will probably ensure a high position in the chart for the shooter for some time.
Halo 4, the game created by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft only on the Xbox 360, is now in second place, but the fact that the team behind it is delivering new content every week for the new Spartan Ops mode means that the game is well positioned to jump back to number one as soon as Black Ops 2 falters.
Another former number one, FIFA 13 from EA Sports, occupies the last place on the podium despite the fact that it was launched in late September.
Assassin’s Creed 3, the open world action game from Ubisoft, is in fourth, sliding down two positions when compared to the previous tracked period, while Skylanders Giant, the newly introduced mix of toys and video game from Activision, managed to gain one position in order to reach fifth.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted also loses two places in order to end up in sixth, while Just Dance 4, the music-powered title from Ubisoft, is in seventh, gaining two places over the past week.
Borderlands 2, the Gearbox-developed and 2K Games-published title, is using the strength of its mechanics and recently introduced DLC in order to keep steady in eight place, while The Sims 3: Seasons is in ninth.
