Mortal Kombat X enjoys biggest ever launch for a Mortal Kombat game in UK

GTA 5 in second following PC version release.

Mortal Kombat X enjoyed the series' biggest ever launch in the UK.

NetherRealm's gory fighting game debuted at number one in this week's chart, scoring the second biggest launch of the year so far behind Battlefield Hardline.

61 per cent of physical sales went to the PlayStation 4 version, Chart-Track reports, with 38 per cent on Xbox One and one per cent on PC. As always, it's worth noting that Chart-Track's data does not include downloads, so sales of MKX on Steam, for example, were not counted.

After four weeks at number one Battlefield Hardline slips to number three as Grand Theft Auto 5 shoots up to number two following the PC version's launch last week.

FIFA 15 is fourth and PS4 exclusive Bloodborne is up one place to fifth. Ubisoft's shooter Far Cry 4 is sixth. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is down two places to seventh, with Minecraft Xbox Edition in eighth and Minecraft PlayStation Edition in ninth. Dying Light rounds out the top 10.

Here's the top 10:

  1. Mortal Kombat X
  2. Grand Theft Auto 5
  3. Battlefield Hardline
  4. FIFA 15
  5. Bloodborne
  6. Far Cry 4
  7. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  8. Minecraft Xbox Edition
  9. Minecraft PlayStation Edition
  10. Dying Light
