Blood & Truth has made history by becoming the first ever VR title to top the UK all-format sales chart, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. Sony’s new shooter debuts at No.1, despite requiring PSVR to play.
The PS4 exclusive is followed by FIFA 19 at No.2, while Team Sonic Racing and Days Gone fall to No.3 and No.4, respectively. Two more new games enter the chart for the week ending June 1, meanwhile. Cricket 19 debuts at No.6, while Nintendo Switch exclusive Little Friends: Dogs & Cats enters at No.24.
Blood & Truth, however, is the success story of the week following its warm critical reception. We awarded it a 7/10 in our verdict.
“Blood & Truth is uneven, especially when it’s determined to get you to focus on an uninteresting story while you’re putting up with the shortcomings of VR,” wrote our critic, Alessandro Barbosa, in GameSpot’s Blood & Truth review. “But the beauty of Blood and Truth is that it also does marvelous things with the platform. The addition of motion control makes familiar and mundane mechanics engaging, while also breaking up the smartly designed first-person shooting and establishing a great rhythm to the six-or-so-hour campaign. Blood & Truth doesn’t manage to stick the landing in all aspects, but it’s definitely a step forward for PSVR shooters.”
