Co-op romp It Takes Two from Hazelight rose one place to sixth, while Sea of Thieves drops two positions to No.7.

New horror title The Quarry from developer Supermassive Games and 2K made its debut in eighth place, just ahead of pre-orders for cat cyberpunk game Stray, which came in at ninth place.
