EA’S Mass Effect Andromeda remained at No.1 for its second week on shelves, performing similarly to 2010’s Mass Effect 2, which also took two consecutive No.1s at launch, while 2013’s Mass Effect 3 only had one week at the top spot. Sales for the latest iteration in the space franchise were down 78 per cent week-onweek, though. Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands also managed to keep its second place for another week, with sales declining 30 per cent. Meanwhile, Warner Bros’ LEGO Worlds held on to its third spot as well, despite a 28 per cent drop in sales. If the Top Three were the same as the week before, there was a new title at No.4 last week: Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 5.5 Remix. It was actually the only new entry in the Top 40. GfK noted that this is the second Kingdom Hearts PS4 title to release this year, and it performed slightly under January’s Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, which debuted at No.3 in the UK weekly charts. Not much happened in the rest of the Top Ten, apart from an eight per cent growth in sales for FIFA 17 (No.7) and a 12 per cent increase for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (No.10). The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now definitely and primarily a Switch

title, with 87 per cent of the copies sold on Nintendo’s new platform, against 13 per cent on Wii U last week. BACK IN THE GAME Further down in the charts, Watch Dogs 2 continued to sell very well. After re-entering the Top 40 two weeks ago at No.28, Ubisoft’s title made it to No.17 last week, with sales increasing 81 per cent. The release of a Watch Dogs 2-inspired bundle for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege on March 21st could explain this sudden boost in sales. Rainbow Six Siege itself was also back in the charts last week at No.25, with sales up 57 per cent. Meanwhile, Destiny: The Collection reentered the listings at No.24 with an impressive 142 per cent boost in sales, likely due to the reveal of Destiny 2 last week. Microsoft’s Halo 5: Guardians also came back in the charts, at No.29, following a 94 per cent increase in sales. STEAM TOP SELLERS On Steam, last-manstanding shooter Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds was No.1 for the second consecutive week, having launched in Early Access on March 23rd, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – GOTY Edition re-entered the Steam charts at No.2 following a drop in price for a few days.
