UK Charts 22/10/16 – Battlefield 1 Sells By The Shedload

After holding onto the top spot with FIFA 17 for the last few weeks, EA have passed the baton over to another of their key titles, with Battlefield 1 in at number 1. While it’s not quite the biggest game launch of the year – that honour is still held by The Division – it’s managed to outsell Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline. Combined.

Civilization VI was another major release at the end of last week, but despite getting very favourable early impressions and reviews, it’s down in 15th place. As always with PC games, there’s a much greater leaning toward digital sales, so the UK charts definitely don’t tell the whole story on that one.

  1. Im surprised CIV:VI (civvy?) made it to 15th, if only physical sales are counted.. I cant remember the last time I bought physical game on PC and don’t know anyone who does anymore.

    Considering the alternatives, you have to either wait 24+hrs for it, if buying online or even worse, you have to actually go outside! To an actual shop! *shudder*

    • I know, I didn’t expect to see it anywhere near the top 20 for retail. I wonder how long it will stay top of the Steam Top Sellers?

    • Anything below about no 10 doesnt need to sell that many to chart

      • According to Steamspy, it sold 620,000 units, so.. Dunno how that relates to the rest of the chart. :\
