Monster Hunter Rise from Capcom was once again the second highest-seller of the week, this time coming in ahead of pre-orders for Warner Bros and Techland's Dying Light 2. That title launches on February 4th.

Pre-orders for FromSoftware's Elden Ring were the fourth highest seller of the week, while police shooter Ready or Not dropped from No.3 to No.6 week-on-week. Pre-orders for Total War: Warhammer III fell from sixth to seventh ahead of its February 17th launch.

Amazon's MMO Lost Ark returns to the Top Ten at No.8 with the Platinum Founder's Pack, while Project Zomboid takes ninth. Rounding off the charts is EA's co-op romp It Takes Two.
