Resident Evil VII maintains its monstrous grip on UK charts

Hitman: Complete First Season debuts at No.4, trouncing previous boxed release of digital collector's edition

Capcom has secured the No.1 spot in the UK games retail charts for a second week running with Resident Evil VII: Biohazard.

The game's sales dropped 68% in its second week, but if the title can hold onto No.1 for just one more week, it will match Resident Evils 3 and 5 as one of the longest-running chart-toppers in the series. With a reasonably quite week ahead in terms of new releases, it stands a good chance. As always, these charts do not include digital sales.

The boxed release of Hitman: The Complete First Season was the highest ranking new release at No.4, blocked from the Top 3 by the non-moving Grand Theft Auto at No.2 and FIFA 17, which climbed one place to No.3. This isn't the first time Io Interactive's episodic take on its assassination series has had a retail presence; a boxed digital collector's edition debuted alongside the first download instalment last year, but it only reached No.29 in the charts.

Square Enix has two titles in the Top 10 this week, with an ongoing price promotion lifting Final Fantasy XV from No.15 to No.8. Aside from Hitman, the only other new entry in the Top 40 was Nintendo's Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, with the 3DS platformer debuting at No.20.

Elsewhere in the charts, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare enjoyed a 4% rise in sales thanks to the release of its first DLC pack Sabotage. Unfortunately this wasn't enough to push it above the No.5 spot it claimed last week.

Rocket League and Battlefield 1 are also non-movers at No.6 and 7 respectively, with a double whammy from Take-Two rounding out the Top 10. WWE 2K17 jumps three places to No.9, while Mafia III climbs one spot to No.10.

The full Top 10 is as follows:

Last Week This Week Title
1 1 Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
2 2 GTA V
4 3 FIFA 17
New Entry 4 Hitman: The Complete First Season
5 5 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
