Doom shoots to the top of the UK game charts after price cut

Following a UK price cut, Doom has jumped from third place in the UK software charts to number one.

The last Bethesda title to sit at the top of the UK charts was Fallout 4, which became the UK’s third biggest launch of the year. The first and only time a Doom title topped the charts was back in 2004 with Doom 3.

Thanks to the price cut, sales of Doom have risen by 57% now that you can grab it for £30.

Overwatch has been bumped down from the top spot to second position, and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has dropped from the second slot to the sixth.
