Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition halts FIFA 14’s UK charts run

The next-gen reworking of last year’s hit Lara Croft title has debuted at No.1 in the UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is a re-release of last year’s hit, which itself grabbed the fourth biggest week one sales of 2013. Claims online say that the PS4 SKU accounted for a whopping 69 per cent of all sales.

Ms Croft’s victory means FIFA 14 is prevented from grabbing its tenth No.1 – an accolade only boasted ten other games in UK charts history. With little in the way of new releases this Friday, EA will surely fancy its chances of claiming that title next week.

There’s virtually no new activity of note elsewhere in the charts with very little change in the Top Ten. Tomb Raider’s success comes at the expense of Namco Bandai’s Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, which slips ten places to 20th.
