Crash Bandicoot Claims No.1 In The UK Charts!
Activision’s Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy has enjoyed a very strong opening week. The platformer follows in the footsteps of Wipeout and Tekken 7 in claiming the chart top spot, suggesting that the nostalgia flows strongly among UK gamers. Furthermore, in debuting at the top, the N.Sane Trilogy does what no other Crash Bandicoot game has ever managed.
In this game you will be able to re-join your favourite marsupial, Crash Bandicoot, as he spins his way onto PlayStation 4 along with his three most memorable adventures, newly recreated for the current generation.
Including Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, the N. Sane Trilogy has been lovingly built from the ground-up with brand new visuals and audio to deliver the series’ classic gameplay to a whole new generation.
Here’s the UK Top 10 in full for the week ending July 1st:
1. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy (Activision)
2. Micro Machines: World Series (Codemasters)

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Absolution DLC has a new launch trailer
This week sees the PS4 release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s third map pack Absolution, and with it a launch trailer. Absolution features four new multiplayer maps and a new addition to the extremely popular Zombies saga. It features Elvira Mistress of the Dark. So, grab a tool and start banging.
In Attack of the Radioactive Thing! you go back in time to the 1950s. Join a cast of survivor’s lead by no less than Elvira herself, fighting to save a small beach town from a government science project that’s gone completely and utterly wrong, unleashing hordes of the undead into civilisation.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Absolution DLC pack is out now on PS4, launching for Xbox One and PC in August.
Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2!
The first trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two has arrived, in which we see protagonist Jesse setting off on a new quest, joined, says Telltale, by ‘a motley band of familiar faces, fortune hunters, sometime enemies and one deeply disobedient llama.’ Aptly titled Hero in Residence, the first episode releases on July 11.
Like in every other Telltale game, the choices you made over the course of each episode determined the direction the story went in. Those decisions carry on over to the new game, but newcomers needn’t worry, it’s not necessary to have played the first season. This can be played as a standalone game.
Episode 1: Hero in Residence will be out on July 11, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
