Several stores across the country started selling the game at midnight as part of a worldwide release of the fifth in the blockbuster series to fans eager to get their hands on one of the most highly-anticipated games of all time.
She was named the "new face" of Bobbi Brown cosmetics in 2014.
The game was only outsold by FIFA 18 (No.1) and Call of Duty: WWII (No.2), which is to be expected since both titles habitually take the number one spot in the charts as soon as they're released.
However, looking at the wider picture this also means that the game outperformed the likes of other key 2017 game launches like Star Wars Battlefront 2, Assassin's Creed Origins and Destiny 2.
Although, it's also worth noting that an official player count was not released by the developer.
This comes after the developer also confirmed that the game sold 85 million copies last year, breaking the world record for game sales in the process.
