Another week, another new number one

Prior to last Friday, the only way to purchase Dying Light was via the download services at a rather extortionate £54.99. Proving that gamers are willing to wait until something is sensibly priced, the belated retail release has shot straight to the top of the UK chart.

It’s the third consecutive number one in three weeks, and Warner Bros’ first chart topper since The Lego Movie Videogame.

The Order 1886 – last week’s number one – falls to #4 while places #2 and #3 are filled by Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and newcomer Dragon Ball Xenoverse respectively. GTA V rounds off the top five, just like it always seems to.

Sony’s much debated PS4-exclusive isn’t the only new release on a slippery slope – Evolve is down five places as well, falling to #8.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask meanwhile departs the top ten, dropping six places to #14. Monster Hunter Ultimate 4 drops further still, now resting at #23.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires was the only other new entry in the top 40, arriving at a respectable enough #21.

Over the in the individual format charts, 2D brawler Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late made #23 in the PS3 chart while JRPG Hyperdevotion Noire: Godness Black Heart entered at #3 in the PS Vita top 20. And yes, there is such a thing.
