Star Wars Battlefront has become the fastest selling Star Wars game in history during its launch week according to new stats.
DICE’s online shooter has also topped UK charts – beating out games like Fallout 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
According to sales monitoring site Chart-Track, Battlefront has sold 117 per cent better than Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and become the fourth biggest release of the year. If you’re classing Star Wars Battlefront as an original game – which Chart-Track are, because it’s a reboot and not a sequel – then it’s also become the “fastest selling non-sequel Playstation 4 title ever.”
Below are the UKs top 10 games this week, but because the list doesn’t involve digital downloads you should take it with an ocean of salt.
- Star Wars Battlefront
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
- Fallout 4
- FIFA 16star
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Lego Dimensions
- Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
- Minecraft: Story Mode
- WWE 2k16
- Need for Speed
Interesting to see Rise of the Tomb Raider as the fifth best selling game this week despite a poor marketing campaign and having to go head-to-head with Fallout 4. Maybe there’s hope for the franchise yet..
