As indicated by the GFK data published by Gamesindustry, related to physical sales in the United Kingdom week by week, Horizon Forbidden West has returned to rise with first place five and a half months after its launch.
While it seems clear that the cause of this promotion is the PlayStation 5 packages with the game (although the truth is that there is still not many to buy), it is the first time that it manages to lead the list from its first weeks, after a Second place during the previous week even with a 25% decrease in their sales. This is also due to the decrease of Xenoblade Chronicles 3-before the head-which, although it was the best premiere of the saga in this region, has gone to the tenth place during the last seven days.
From GI they indicate that Gran Turismo 7 increased their sales by 32% to place in fifth place. On the other hand, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga remains in third place and Nintendo also keeps Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokémon legends: Arceus, Nintendo Switch Sports and Animal Crossing: New Horizons among the top ten.

In his analysis of Horizon Forbidden West my partner Víctor Martínez, A.K.A. Chiconuclear, highlighted how this sequel to Zero Dawn managed to expand and finish off the deficiencies of his predecessor, with an open world that an open world that should become a new standard for gender:
It does not always escape some sins that seem to come standard with the opening of the world, but the fifty long hours that I have dedicated to him have never turned out to me; soft, sometimes, as I said before, but never forced or made forward with cheap tricks. We would do a favor if we began to consider Horizon Forbidden West as the new standard for this type of open world MaInstream and high budget; If we do not settle for less than this, I think the future will bring us great things.
