There’s no tackling FIFA

FIFA 14 has unexpectedly re-taken the top spot of the UK chart, keeping The Elder Scrolls Online at bay.

Bethesda’s PC RPG – due out on PS4 and Xbox One later this year – has to make do with #2. It’ll be interesting to see where it is next week – Diablo III: Reaper of Souls entered at #6 last week but now sits at #37. Of course, Chart-Track doesn’t include sales via Blizzard’s portal.

So, why is FIFA 14 back at #1? It’s likely to be a combination of a drop in price at one of the major retailers (GAME, perhaps) and the fact that the World Cup isn’t far off.

With the official World Cup 2014 game out next week, it could be the last time it sits on top of the chart.

EA’s soccer sim has had a bloody good run – it hasn’t left the top 6 since being released 28 weeks ago, and has a grand total of 11 weeks at #1. That’s a feat only four other games have managed – Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Wii Fit, Zumba Fitness and EA’s own FIFA: Road to the World Cup 98.

Titanfall remains at #3 – and with the 360 version finally arriving on Friday, it could very well become #1 again next week – and then at #4 it’s Call of Duty: Ghosts, up four places. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes finishes off this week’s UK top five.

inFamous Second Son – last week’s chart topper – now sits at #6.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Complete Edition on PS4 is the only new arrival in the top 40, hacking its way in at #29.
