Star Wars Battlefront biggest ever Star Wars game launch in UK

Great, kid. Don't get cocky.

Star Wars Battlefront has secured the biggest ever launch for a Star Wars game in the UK.

According to data from Chart-Track, which does not include download sales, DICE's multiplayer-focused shooter sold 117 per cent more units in its launch week than the previous best Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Star Wars Battlefront, which launched in the UK on Thursday, is the fourth biggest launch of any game in 2015, Chart-Track added, behind Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, FIFA 16 and Fallout 4.

Chart-Track says Battlefront is the fastest-selling non-sequel PlayStation 4 title ever, which means it sold more at launch on PS4 than Activision's Destiny. Star Wars Battlefront is a reboot of the Battlefront series. Does that mean it's a non-sequel game? Maybe. Maybe not!

Wii U games Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival and Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash both failed to breach the top 40.

Here's the top 10 in full:

  1. Star Wars Battlefront
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
  3. Fallout 4
  4. FIFA 16
  5. Rise of the Tomb Raider
  6. Lego Dimensions
  7. Assassin's Creed: Syndicate
  8. Minecraft Story Mode
  9. WWE 2K16
  10. Need for Speed
