Titanfall and Dark Souls 2 have entered the UK charts at first and second respectively, marking a strong release for both new titles.

It follows our Titanfall review round-up and Dark Souls 2 review list. Both games have scored very well indeed.

Chart-keeper UKIE reveals that Titanfall is the UK’s biggest game launch of the year so far, and has more than doubled the sales of EA’s other big-hitter FIFA 14. It has helped Xbox One hardware sales jump 96%, thanks in part to Microsoft’s new Xbox One Titanfall bundle, which accounts for 70% of the console’s sales.

The firm added that Dark Souls 2 launch sales are up 20% on its predecessor.

Here’s the UK top ten in full:

  1. Titanfall
  2. Dark Souls 2
  3. South Park: The Stick of Truth
  4. The LEGO Movie Videogame
  5. Thief
  6. FIFA 14
  7. Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare
  8. Call of Duty: Ghosts
  9. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
  10. Battlefield 4

Fellow newcomer Yoshi’s New Island entered the chart at 12, marking a strong start for the 3DS platformer.
