Battleborn and raised

Battleborn has claimed the UK chart’s top spot, giving Take-2 their first number once since 2015’s current-gen GTA V re-release.

It appears Battleborn didn’t have to shift spectacular numbers to get where it is, however – Chart-Track reports that this week’s chart was hit by a “summer slump” with sales down 11% overall.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III holds onto #2, last week’s chart topper Ratchet & Clank falls to #3, GTA V moves up from #8 to #4 and then at #5 it’s Tom Clancy’s The Division.

Far Cry Primal moves up to #6, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers drops one place to #7, Dark Souls III sinks to #8 and then at #9 we have EA Sports UFC 2. FIFA 16 then finishes off the UK’s top ten at #10.

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is the week’s biggest riser – up from #37 to #17 thanks to a price drop – while Nintendo’s Yo-Kai Watch is the biggest faller, dropping from #14 to #25.

The top 40 also sees the return of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, back in at #22.
