This week's other notable new entries are Grid Autosport in seventh, and a new Transformers movie tie-in game in 12th.
Watch Dogs is still second and last week's leader, EA Sports UFC, third. Titanfall is fourth, Wolfenstein fifth and FIFA 14 sixth.
COD: Ghosts, Minecraft Xbox 360 and Minecraft PS3 round out the top 10.
One Piece: Unlimited World Red enters in 28th.
