Battlefront Has Biggest Star Wars Launch Ever in UK

Star Wars Battlefront title has the biggest launch ever for a Star Wars game in the UK.

Chart-Track which records game sales but not download sales, says the game beat the previous record holder Star Wars: The Force Unleashed selling 117% more copies at retail in its first week.

DICE’s multiplayer shooter, according to Chart-Track, is also the fastest selling non-sequel on PS4, selling more copies than Destiny in its first week, although it is worth mentioning that there have been other Battlefront games despite DICE’s entry being more akin to a reboot.
