First person zombie survival title Dying Light has held the top spot for the second week in the UK chart, overcoming a month-long delay and a head-start for the digital edition.

Sales monitor Chart-Track notes that the game's total physical sales have outperformed The Order: 1886 and Evolve, despite both those titles' additional weeks on the market.

Dying Light first released in the US on January 27, and was scheduled to ship across Europe on the same week. However, a major distribution error meant the game's physical release across the continent was delayed to February 27.

The digital edition for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC was not affected by the delay. But despite the digital edition's month on the market (sales of which are not counted), Dying Light nevertheless managed to outsell all competition for the second week running.

Meanwhile, Zombie Army Trilogy, the trio of zombie-themed games and expansions from UK studio Rebellion, is the only new entry in the top 40.

Ahead of its delayed PC release, the console versions of Grand Theft Auto V sold enough copies to bring the title back up to second place.

The full top ten follows.

  1. Dying Light
  2. Grand Theft Auto V
  3. FIFA 15
  4. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  5. Dragon Ball Xenoverse
  6. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
  7. The Order: 1886
  8. Zombie Army Trilogy
  9. Evolve
  10. Minecraft: PlayStation Edition
