Figures published by retail analyst Chart-Track have revealed that Ready at Dawn’s PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 has entered the UK all-format charts at number one, pushing last week’s chart-topper, Evolve, down to third place.
Sandwiched in between these two triple-A titles is Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which has become a chart mainstay since its arrival back in November of last year.
Here is this week’s top ten in full, as provided by GfK:
1) The Order: 1886
2) Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
4) Far Cry 4
5) Grand Theft Auto 5
6) FIFA 15
7) Minecraft: Xbox Edition
8) The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D
9) Minecraft: PlayStation Edition
Given that The Order: 1886 represents the first biggest PS4 exclusive of the year, its arrival at number one should come as no surprise. As a matter of fact, Chart-Track also notes that Ready at Dawn’s Victorian-themed shooter is Sony’s first chart-topper since the re-release of The Last of Us on PlayStation 4 back in August.
The only other new release of note was The Creative Assembly’s Total War: Attila, which entered the charts at 21st. Mind you, as with previous weeks, it’s worth keeping in mind that Chart-Track doesn’t factor digital sales into its final verdict.
Elsewhere in this week’s standings, Ubisoft’s critically-adorned Far Cry 4 creeped up three places thanks to a sales promotion, while Grand Theft Auto V continues its stranglehold of the all-format charts in fifth. An annual UK holiday was also responsible for a sales bump for Minecraft across both Xbox and PlayStation editions, which slotted in at seventh and ninth, respectively.
Looking ahead to next week and there aren’t many new releases to look forward to. In saying that, March is right around the corner, a window of time that will serve up Bloodborne, Battlefield Hardline, and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD along with many, many others.
