Battlefield Hardline No.1 for second week, Bloodborne debuts in second place

Battlefield Hardline has spent its second week in pole position of the GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40.

Sales of EA’s new shooter fell by 43 per cent week-on-week, but Hardline still beat this week’s top new release, Sony’s PS4-exclusive Bloodborne.

The hardcore RPG debuted at No.2, falling 22,500 units short of first place.

In third place is another new entry into the charts, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection – a PS4 and Xbox One remaster of 2012’s Borderlands 2 and last year’s Pre-Sequel.

Grand Theft Auto V falls once place to No.4 as sales dip 11 per cent, while FIFA 15 remains steady in fifth position.

Retailer promotions help Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Far Cry 4 this week – sales of the former rose 43 per cent, while the latter’s sales shot up 233 per cent.

They weren’t the only games to benefit from price activity, either. Sales of The Order 1886 rose 112 per cent thanks to retailer promotions, bringing it back to No.10.

And Minecraft: PlayStation Edition falls out of the Top 10 for the first time since February. In spite of a nine per cent rise in sales week-on-week, the PlayStation SKUs of the construction title drop from No.10 to 13th place. Minecraft: Xbox Edition sits in ninth place.

Below is the software Top 10 for the week ending March 28th:

1. Battlefield Hardline (EA)
2. Bloodborne (Sony)
3. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (2K Games)
4. Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar)
