Fallout 4 may have reigned supreme earlier in the month, but it couldn’t top the charts for the second week in a row thanks to the release of Star Wars Battlefront.
Star Wars Battlefront released in the UK on November 20th and managed to top the UK charts comfortably. The game was the fourth biggest launch in 2015. It falls behind the launches of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, FIFA 16 and Fallout 4 from last week.
It was also mentioned the game became the fastest selling non-sequel on the PS4 to date according to Eurogamer. However that might be a PR spin since this is a reboot and not an original IP. The PS4 version sold the most copies followed by the Xbox One. The PC version was last.
The game also sold 117 percent better than the first week sales of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. It became the biggest selling Star Wars game launch in UK history. With Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens out, the hype has never reached this high.
Fallout 4 had to settle for third place as Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 continues to sell strongly. FIFA 16 and Rise of the Tomb Raider rounded out the top five.
