As we’re slowly entering the predefined “holiday period” some of this year’s big hitters have already stormed the charts creating quite a stir. What usually consists of a battle between Call of Duty and FIFA, the fight has started early this year with EA’s Battlefield 1 which unsurprisingly remains at the top of the charts this week.
Chart-Track has today confirmed that Battlefield 1 has managed to fend off the competition this week and remained firmly in number one. It’s also doing better than its predecessors too who saw second week declines of around 54%. Battlefield 1 has only seen a decline of 39%.
New in this week is the remastered edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition which lands in second place this week and is a huge debut for the game, though it doesn’t quite compare to the game’s initial launch back in 2011.
As for FIFA 17, it sits comfortably in third place.
Interestingly, Titanfall 2 hasn’t managed to make waves as it debuts in fourth place and unfortunately hasn’t managed to outsell the original in terms of week one sales. Another new entry this week is Farming Simulator 17 which does impressively well falling in fifth place this year with sales up almost 54% on PlayStation 4 compared to the 2014 release.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 also launched last week landing in seventh place. This time around it boasts an even bigger and better hub for players to hang out, as well as an impressive campaign.
Other new releases this week come in the form of World of Final Fantasy which lands in eleventh place, Just Dance 2017 falls in at twenty-sixth place, and finally Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure lands in thirty-first.
