Easter is here and EA’s ‘Battlefield Hardline’ (-40%) makes it three weeks out of three at the Top, with a surging ‘GTA V’ (+35%) up 2 to No2.
Sony’s big new PS4 release last week ‘Bloodborne’ by From Software (-55%) drops 1 place to No3 and there are plenty of Easter deals affecting the charts this week. EA’s ‘FIFA 15’ climbs 1 place to No4 (+44%) and Ubisoft climb impressively for a second week, up a further 3 places to No5 with ‘Far Cry 4’ - one of the big Easter sale beneficiaries (+116%).
The big new release this week at No8 is Bandai Namco’s multi-format ‘Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin’, which also happens to be the second From Software-developed title within the Top 10 in the space of 2 weeks. Also debuting this week is EA’s first Sims 4 expansion ‘The Sims 4: Get to Work’ at No18. The final new release within the Top 40 is Nintendo’s epic action-RPG ‘Xenoblade Chronicles’ for 3DS at No27. Developed by Monster Games in association with Monolith this game only works on the new Nintendo 3DS due to size and scale.
