Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has successfully defended its position at the top of the chart, despite a fall in sales of 77% and strong competition from new contenders Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Ubisoft’s highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed sequel has to settle for second place, missing out on top spot by 16,000 sales. It does, however, outsell last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which originally debuted on Xbox 360 and PS3. The PS4 version of Unity accounted for 52% of sales, Xbox One 46% and PC 2%. Older generation consoles (PS3/XB360) got a separate game, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, which debuts this week at No.6. Combined sales of the two different AC titles would have seen it outsell CoD: Advanced Warfare this week.
Released on Tuesday, Halo: The Master Chief Collection enters at No.3, one place ahead of FIFA 15 (+2%) which is down two places to No.4. It is the biggest launch for a Microsoft published Xbox One title and the seventh biggest Xbox One launch by any publisher.
There are six new titles in the Top 10 this week with Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham making an appearance at No.5 (Lego Batman 2 managed No.1 in 2012), Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 new at No.8 and World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor debuting at No.9. Minecraft: Playstation Edition falls one place to No.7, but sales are up 79% thanks to its release on PS Vita this week. The Vita release is the biggest Minecraft launch on a PlayStation console, outselling both PS3 and PS4’s debuts. It is the third-biggest debut ever on Vita, behind console launch titles Uncharted: Golden Abyss and FIFA Football. The Top 10 is rounded off with Destiny, down from No.5 to No.10.Top 10 UK games chart week ending October 25 | Ukie Games Charts©, compiled by GfK Chart-Track
