UK Charts: Dying Light Finds the Light and Takes the Top Spot

Warner Bros. and Techland’s Dying Light have taken the top spot, and scored another victory for new IPs in 2015. Though Dying Light launched in North America back in January, the game only just hit retails stores in the UK. This is not only a stunning win for Warner Bros., who have not had a number 1 since The LEGO Movie Videogame nearly a year ago, but also a victory for new IPs. For the third consecutive week, a new IP has launched at the top spot (Evolve and The Order: 1886 both launched at the top spot).

Now comes the hard part, maintaining the top spot. The Order: 1886, which was at the top spot last week, has slid down three slots. Evolve went from number 1 the first week to number 3 last week, and now sits at eighth place.

Bandai Nacmo also scored a big win with Dragon Ball: Xenoverse. The 3D fighting game based on the popular anime launched in third place.
