Tomb Raider overshadows EMEAA game charts

Upcoming release bolsters Rise of the Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider into top ten

Both Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider have seen a dramatic resurgence in the EMEAA combined charts ahead of the release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Rise of the Tomb Raider rose over 300 places to No.5 on the combined platform-aggregated charts last week, while Tomb Raider took the No.10 spot after spending last week all the way down at No.307.

The remainder of the top 10 should be fairly unsurprising, with Grand Theft Auto V, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, and Monster Hunter: World occupying spots 1, 2, and 3. Star Wars: Battlefront II came in at No. 4, surging from its spot at No.30 the previous week ahead of its upcoming Clone Wars DLC, Elite Corps.

The GSD EMEAA charts are a fairly recent initiative from ISFE and B2boost. The charts are not a complete picture: the UK won't contribute data until early next year, and a few major companies such as Bethesda and Nintendo are conspicuously absent from those contributing data. However, the advantage to the charts is that they include digital data as well as physical sales, as reflected in the combined chart below:
