PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 has jumped to first place in the UK games charts, sales monitor Chart-Track revealed on Monday.

Developed by PSP specialists Ready at Dawn, the studio’s debut PS4 title had a rocky launch with middling critical reception and debate regarding its somewhat short campaign length.

Despite this, the widely promoted title debuts at the top of that chart, and marks the first time Sony’s in-house team has created a UK number one since August 2014 (with The Last of Us Remastered).

Meanwhile, a 66 percent drop in sales led to 2K Games’ Evolve to fall from the top spot down to third, just behind Activision’s longstanding shooter Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Retail promotions for Far Cry 4 bring it up three places to fourth.

Majora’s Mask 3D, the latest classic Nintendo title to be remastered for the 3DS, drops from second place to eighth following a 70 percent drop in sales. The other major 3DS release, Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, sinks from fourth to twelfth with a similar drop in units.

Neither of the two newest entrants made the top ten, with the PC strategy game Total War: Attila hitting 21 and the remastered Dead or Alive 5 Last Round for PS4 and Xbox One joining at 27. Because PC games tend to be purchased digitally, which Chart-Track doesn’t calculate, Total War: Attila’s position in the chart is somewhat unrepresentative.

The full top ten follows:

  1. The Order 1886
  2. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  3. Evolve
  4. Far Cry 4
  5. Grand theft Auto V
  6. FIFA 15
  7. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
  8. Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D
  9. Minecraft: Playstation Edition
  10. Destiny
