Syndicate tops gaming chart above FIFA 16

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has knocked FIFA 16 off the top of the all-format gaming chart.

Ubisoft will be happy to take the top spot off EA’s footballing juggernaut, but less pleased with Syndicate‘s overall performance.

The latest entry in the Assassin’s Creed series sold fewer copies in its first week than any other major Assassin’s Creed release.

FIFA 16 drops to second after a 16% decline in sales, while Guitar Hero Live debuts in third, generating 24% more week one sales than its predecessor Warriors of Rock.

The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes charts just outside the top ten at 11, below the likes of Forza 6, LEGO Jurassic World and Metal Gear Solid 5.

Watch Dogs re-enters the top 20 thanks to its inclusion in new PS4 bundles, while Just Dance 2016 debuts at 19.
