Battlefield Hardline holds No.1, Far Cry 4 sales increase thanks to Easter deals

EA's Battlefield Hardline maintains its position at No.1 in the GfK Chart-Track Top 40.

The shooter holds its position at the top of the charts in spite of a 40 per cent decline in sales. The title holds off competition from Grand Theft Auto V, sales of which rose 35 per cent, bringing it up two positions to No.2.

Rockstar's crime title wasn't the only game who sales increased this week – a number of titles benefited from Easter sales.

Far Cry 4's sales rose 116 per cent thanks to retailer promotions, while FIFA 15 sold 44 per cent more units week-on-week.

And joining Bloodborne in the Top 10 is another From Software game. This time its the re-release of Dark Souls II – Scholar of the First Sin – which debuts in eighth place. Meanwhile From's PS4-exclusive falls one place to No.3 in the Top 40.
