Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has held on to the UK’s No.1 despite a massive 78 per cent drop off in sales week-on-week.
Doom too proves to have great staying power, holding at No.2 with only a 35 per cent drop in sales week-on-week. So impressive was Doom’s second week that it actually sits “close” to the top spot in terms of units sold.
Homefront: The Revolution, Koch Media’s first title in the franchise since acquiring the rights from closed publisher THQ, is new at No.3. The original charted at No.1 back in week 11 of 2011. Sales figures for The Revolution have not been announced.
Elsewhere Black Ops 3 drops into No.4, whilst Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Fates Birthright takes No.5. Fire Emblem Fates Conquest claims No.11.
Also new is SEGA’s Valkyria Chronicles Remastered at No.6, whilst Battleborn continues to drop down the chart finding itself at No.27. Battleborn isn’t the only game on the slide, with Ratchet and Clank down from No.4 to No.12, and Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal dropping from No.6 to No.30.
