Blizzard's new shooter IP Overwatch manages to maintain its position at the head of the UK Top 40 this week.

Sales of the online title fell just 54 per cent week-on-week, which is an indication of healthy performance.

In second place is Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, whose sales fell just 27 per cent. It charted ahead of Doom, which held third place with a 33 per cent sales dip.

FIFA 16 shoots up to No.4 from seventh place with sales rising 65 per cent week-on-week. This is due to price promotions, bundles as well as the upcoming Euro 2016, GfK speculates.

Fifth place is occupied by a new title, Dead Island: Definitive Edition. This collects remastered versions of the original Dead Island, as well as 2013's Riptide, for PS4 and Xbox One.

Sales of Grand Theft Auto V also rose this week and rose four places to No.6. Thanks to half term, the crime blockbuster rose 66 per cent week-on-week. Meanwhile, Homefront The Revolution falls six places to No.10.
