FIFA 15 proved its resilience again as the soccer sims run atop of the UK all-format chart entered its fifth week. Publisher Electronic Arts has taken 18 number one spots this year already, nearly double what it achieved in the entirety of 2013.
Further down, the acclaimed Wii U exclusive Bayonetta 2 enters at seventh place. Due to the Wii Us small install base in the UK, seventh place during a busy period may be considered a success by Nintendo. In December, the flagship Wii U game of 2013, Super Mario 3D World, debuted at 14th place in the chart.
Elsewhere in the charts the furniture has shuffled. The Evil Within drops to third, Destiny climbs to forth, Shadow of Mordor slips to fifth, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel falls to sixth, Forza Horizon 2 dips to eighth, Alien: Isolation tumbles to ninth, while Skylanders Trap Team rises to tenth.
The most notable change is the 82 percent boost in sales for Minecraft: Playstation Edition, bouyed by strong sales of the PS4 version, and ascending to second place.Elsewhere, new PC entry Civilization: Beyond Earth enters at eighteenth, though the charts do not yet measure digital downloads.

5: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
