Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has won this week's heated race to claim the UKIE GfK Chart-Track UK No.1 spot.
EA's Battlefield 4 has to settle for second place in its first week, although both titles fail to match the numbers recorded by their respective previous instalments – presumably as many chose to hold on for the release of Xbox One and PS4 later this month.
Sega's Football Manager 2014 debuts in sixth place (with sales down seven per cent year-on-year) with seventh claimed by 2K Games' debutant WWE 2K14.
