Even with concerns about its physical launch sales in the UK not measuring up to even Mass Effect Andromeda, BioWare’s Anthem continues to dominate charts in its second week. According to UKIE/Gfk Chart-Track (via GamesIndustry), the online looter shooter saw a 71 percent drop in sales over the past week. FIFA 19, another Electronic Arts title, meanwhile managed to place second.

New entries in the top ten include The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame in fourth place, with the PS4 version making up 59 percent of sales, and DiRT Rally 2.0 in sixth place, also having 59 percent of its sales on PS4. Codemasters’ latest rally title actually accounted for the second highest revenue of the week due to its higher retail price and was only beat out by Anthem.

The final new entry for the week was Trials Rising, particularly the Gold Edition, which debuted in tenth place. It saw 39 percent of sales on PS4, 33 percent on Xbox One, and 28 percent on Nintendo Switch. That’s a pretty good split, especially considering the franchise has just now made its debut for Nintendo consoles with this entry. As for Team Ninja’s Dead or Alive 6, it didn’t even come close to cracking the top 10, debuting in 21st place.

  1. Anthem
  2. FIFA 19
  3. Far Cry: New Dawn
