The long-awaited third official installment in the Borderlands series has swept to the top of the retail video games sales charts this week.
No surprise, the colourful – in look and in tone – loot and shooter brings back all the things people loved about the previous titles: over-the-top guns and characters, awesome co-op and a stack of replayability. IGN loves it and it’s clear the general public does too.
Last week’s top title, NBA 2K20, has dropped down to second place, while Gears 5 continues to stay near the top of the sales charts. Coming in at number four is Greedfall, an ambitious old-school, BioWare-style RPG that tackles morally complex themes like Colonialism. It’s a bit buggy, but offers choices with real consequences, and has a whole lot of meat to dig into. The other new title debuting this week is Pro Evolution Soccer 2020, which just pops in at number nine.
