Wolfenstein: The New Order UK's second biggest launch of 2014

Behind Titanfall.

MachineGames' first-person shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order entered the UK all format chart this week in first place, Chart-Track figures have revealed.

It's the first game in the series to do so since the UK's all format chart began in 1997. 2001's Return to Castle Wolfenstein managed number 11. 2009's Wolfenstein reached number two.

Wolfenstein is the second biggest release of 2014, behind Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall. It accounted for a quarter of all software unit sales last week, and 36 per cent of all revenue. As always, it's worth noting Chart-Track does not count digital sales. At the time of publication Wolfenstein was the second top-selling game on Steam, behind Watch Dogs.

Elsewhere in the UK all format chart, Minecraft PS3 Edition climbs to second place, with FIFA 14 dropping two places to third. Titanfall is down to four, with 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil in fifth for a third week.

Tropico 5 is number four on the PC full price chart, but given digital sales aren't counted, it likely did much better. Goat Simulator's boxed launch debuts at number 12 in the PC budget chart.
