Battlefield 1 Continues To Outgun Its Competition For UK Sales, Titanfall 2 Debuts At No.4

EA DICE’s Battlefield 1 has taken the No.1 crown in the latest GFK video game Chart-Track standings for a second consecutive week, fending off competition from new entries Skyrim Special Edition and Titanfall 2.

While Battlefield 3 and 4 suffered second-week sale declines, Battlefield 1 faired much better, down just 31% on last week’s impressive first-week sales figures.

Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition enjoyed a successful launch week after releasing for Xbox One and PS4 with the remaster of the 2011 classic debuting at No.2. With much-improved graphics, Skyrim Special Edition sits just behind the original for series week 1 sales.

Despite only launching this past Friday for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, Respawn Entertainments’ Titanfall 2 makes a strong debut at No.4, although failing to match the heights of Titanfall which took the No.1 spot after its release in 2014.

Other notable new entries this week sees Farming Simulator 17 plough its way to No.5, Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 debut at No.7, Square Enix’s World of Final Fantasy at No.11 and Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2017 enter the charts at No.26.

Elsewhere, retailer promotions see Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V and Turn 10’s Forza Horizon 3 move back up the standings to No.9 and No.10 respectively.
