Dying Light takes the top spot

Warner Bros. Interactive secure their first No1 crown in just over a year with ‘Dying Light’ taking top spot.  The title has been available for almost a month on digital platforms but that does not prevent the physical release becoming the publisher’s first chart topping title since ‘The Lego Movie Videogame’.  It’s also the third consecutive new IP to take top spot in the last three weeks.  For developer Techland it marks another zombie themed No1 following the success of their Dead Island series.  ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (-15%) climbs to No2 despite a drop in sales.  Another debutant lands at No3 in the form of ‘Dragon Ball Xenoverse’.  Impressive sales for the new release see it claim the best week 1 in the UK for a Dragon Ball title.  PS4 exclusive ‘The Order: 1886’ (-56%)  is knocked down to No4 in its second week. ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-5%) and ‘FIFA 15’ (-11%) are both non movers at No5 & No6 but Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry 4’ (-40%) slips three places to No7.  In its third week on the chart Take 2’s monster hunter ‘Evolve’ (-54%) is also down sliding five places to No8.  The seemingly ever present ‘Minecraft: Xbox Edition’ (-28%) & ‘Minecraft: PlayStation Edition’ (-22%) round off the Top 10 at No9 & No10.  A third debutant makes its mark in the Top 40 this week with ‘Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires’ landing at No21 for Xbox One and PS4.  Price promotions also help propel Bethesda’s ‘Wolfenstein: The New Order’ (+80%) back into the Top 40 as it climbs 20 places to No25.
