Risen 3: Titan Lords fails to make UK top 40

Considering Risen 2: Dark Waters entered at a respectable #14 back in 2012, it’s slightly surprising to find that Risen 3: Titan Lords has failed to make the UK top 40.

Deep Silver’s RPG does however enter at #12 in both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 individual charts, suggesting it only narrowly missed out on a top 40 placing.

Last month Sacred 3 – also published by Deep Sliver – likewise failed to break into the chart. We highly doubt that this will be the last we see of these two relatively obscure franchises though – chances are they have performed well on PC, not to mention elsewhere in Europe. In case you’re not aware, Chart-Track doesn’t currently include digital download sales.

In the top ten, meanwhile, a minor shuffle has occurred – The Last of Us Remastered holds onto #1, while Watch_Dogs remains at #2. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition round off the top five, while positions 5-10 are filled by the usual culprits – FIFA 14, GTA V, Battlefield 4 et al.

Glancing down the chart, Ultra Street Fighter IV – last week’s only new arrival – drops from #15 to #22. It’s this week’s biggest faller, in fact.

Then at #21 it’s a surprise re-entry for EA’s Command & Conquer: Ultimate Collection. A quick poke around online would suggest that GAME cutting the price to £4.99 is the reason.

Resident Evil 6 has also re-entered, way down at #31. It’s currently £4.99 with any purchase at HMV. We’d wager that’s why.

That’s about all the ‘action’ (for want of a better word) that the chart holds for us this week. With Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition launching tomorrow and the PS3/PS4 versions of Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare arriving this Friday, next Monday’s chart should be a tad more exciting.
