Arriving just three weeks ahead of the theatrical release of The Force Awakens, EA's shooter has recorded the biggest ever launch for a game based on Disney's billion-dollar franchise. In terms of week-one performance, it sold 117 percent better than the series' previous best, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
Chart-Track calculates that Battlefront has recorded the fourth biggest launch of any game in 2015, in the process becoming what Chart-Track claims is "the fastest selling non-sequel PlayStation 4 title ever" (the group suggests that Battlefront is more a reboot than a sequel.) It is also the PS4's fastest-selling online-only game, outstripping the previous holder of that distinction, Destiny.
The remainder of the chart is somewhat more familiar. Black Ops 2 holds second with a 50 percent week-on-week drop in sales, while last week’s top-seller Fallout 4 falls to third. Rise of the Tomb Raider continues its somewhat underwhelming performance in the chart; it holds fifth spot with a 37 percent decline in sales.
