Wolfenstein: The New Order

Bad news, Nazis – B.J. Blazkowicz is coming for you. The seasoned superstar has helped Wolfenstein: The New Order Reich the summit of the UK sales charts this week, with the MachineGames developed release securing the second biggest launch of the year thus far. Bethesda may want to enjoy that, because we suspect that Watch Dogs will be topping its tally as we type.

Despite numerous entries over the years, this is the first version of id’s legendary shooter to actually hit the number one spot. It accounted for a quarter of all software sales for the week, which doesn’t exactly bode well for the remainder of the best sellers list, does it? Still, its success is thoroughly deserved, as we really enjoyed the title.

Elsewhere, the usual suspects fleshed out the charts. Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition built a home in second, as FIFA 14 slipped down into third. Meanwhile, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil dribbled into fifth, while Call of Duty: Ghosts remained frosty in sixth. Lastly, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 continued to cling on to eighth, as Battlefield 4 and LEGO The Movie Video Game occupied the leftover slots.

As always, you can peruse the full list of movers and shakers through here. What’s been giving your wallet the willies of late? Have you been saving your cash for Watch Dogs? Flash your fifty pound notes in the comments section below.
