UK Game Charts: Dying Light Runs Rampant for Second Week

58. Dying Light

Techland’s Dying Light is still the highest selling game in the UK across all platforms according to recent sales data from Gfk Chart-Track. This is despite the physical retail release of the open world first person survival horror releasing a month later in territories outside of North America.

What’s most surprising though is that Dying Light’s total physical sales have managed to surpass The Order: 1886 and Evolve, games that have been out longer and arguably with much more hype. Taking digital sales into account, it’ll be intriguing to see just how well Dying Light has sold since its January release.

Grand Theft Auto 5 shot up to second place in the previous week with Heists going live for current and previous gen devices. This was followed by the usual suspects with FIFA 15 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at third and fourth respectively. Dragon Ball Xenoverse continues to hold strong in the charts at fifth place which is odd.

The only new entrant this week was Zombie Army Trilogy which entered at eighth place. That’s pretty good considering it’s essentially a remastered version of Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 1/2 with the third unreleased game thrown in for good measure.

    So The Order must of only sold about 25,000 first week including preorders and now it’s dropped out, they are going to lose a fortune.

    • Mr Xrat

      Dropped out? It’s seventh in the combined SKUs (i.e all possible consoles versus being single-platform exclusive), stayed in third on the individuals. Meanwhile Screamride, the only retail Xbone exclusive of the first half of the year, didn’t even chart. They may as well not have bothered.

      Currently it’s stinking up the pre-owned sections across the nation with great force as well.

      But then it amazes me people defend a 5 hour cancer upon gaming simply because it’s PS4 exclusive.
