Euro Truck Simulator 2: Go East has driven straight into the number two spot in the UK budget PC boxed game chart.
The title went on sale on September 20th and was the only new budget entry to enter the Top Ten this week. PCR went hands-on with Euro Truck Sim 2: Go East here.
Despite its initial success, it wasn’t enough to pip The Sims 3: Movie Stuff at the top of the chart, which knocked World of Warcraft off the top spot last week.
In the UK boxed full-price PC game chart, there were two new entries into the Top Ten this week – The Elder Scrolls: Anthology at number four and Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 at number five. The latter also reached number two in the All Formats chart.
Grand Theft Auto 5 of course topped the All Formats chart after becoming the fastest-selling game ever.
