UK Charts: F1 2015 Knocks Batman: Arkham Knight from the Top

The Dark Knight has fallen. Not to Scarecrow or the Arkham Knight, but to a racing game. Codemasters’ F1 2015 came speeding out of the gate to huge success in the UK, managing to nab the number one slot. First week sales of F1 2015 were up 367% compared to F1 2014, giving Codemasters an easy win over the competition.

Sales of Batman: Arkham Knight dropped 54% compared to the previous week, causing Rocksteady and Warner Bros.’s trilogy-ending title to drop to second place. LEGO Jurassic World, another Warner Bros. game, came in third place.
