Call of Duty: Black Ops II was knocked down from the top of the UK charts last week — after a six week consecutive run at the top of the charts — by Far Cry 3 and FIFA 13. Total sales for Ubisoft’s island shooter actually slipped 5% week-over-week, however, several promotional offers and discounts helped it maintain enough sales momentum to make it the best-selling game for the last week of 2012.

The last minute ascension of Far Cry 3 also helped Ubisoft become the most represented publisher in the UK sales chart, with a total of three titles landing in the top 10 all-formats chart — the other two being Just Dance 4 in 6th and Assassin’s Creed III in 8th.

The UK Top 20 Software All-Formats Chart for the week ending December 29, 2012 reads as follows:

1. Far Cry 3 (Ubisoft)
2. FIFA 13 (EA)
3. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Activision)
4. Hitman Absolution (Square Enix)
5. Need for Speed Most Wanted (EA)
6. Just Dance 4 (Ubisoft)
7. Halo 4 (Microsoft)
8. Assassin’s Creed III (Ubisoft)
9. LEGO Lord of the Rings (Warner Bros)
10. Forza Horizon (Microsoft)
11. WWE ’13 (THQ)
12. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
13. Football Manager 2013 (Sega)
14. Dishonored (Bethesda)
15. Medal of Honor: Warfighter (EA)
16. Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed (Sega)
17. Skylanders Giants (Activision)
18. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (Warner Bros)
19. Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (Disney)
20. Forza Motorsport 4 (Microsoft)
