Train2Game news: UK Charts – Sniper Elite V2 takes No.1

Train2Game students see Sniper Elite V2 by Oxford based studio Rebellion topping the charts in its first week on sale.  Get an insight into how the sniping based shooter was made in a developer diary here on The Train2Game Blog.

Last week’s No.1 Prototype 2 drops to No.2, with FIFA 12 once again a non-mover at No.3. FIFA Street drops two to No.4, while fellow EA title Mass Effect 3 slips one to No.5.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 moves up one to No.6, leapfrogging Kinect Star Wars which drops two to No.7. Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games moves up to No.8, switching positions with Battlefield 3 which is No.9.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 completes the top ten, after re-entering it from No.14. As reported by The Train2Game Blog, the next instalment in the series, Call of Duty: Black Ops II was announced last week.

Saints Row The Third and The Witcher 2 leave the top ten, falling to No.13 and No.16 respectively.  The PlayStation Vita version of Mortal Kombat only manages to reach No.33 in its debut week.

The UKIE Gfk Chart-Track All Formats Top 10 for the week ending 5th May is therefore as follows:

1. Sniper Elite V2 (505 Games)
2. Prototype 2 (Activision)
3. FIFA 12 (EA)

  1. I still haven’t the chance to play this game, but overall this is great news.
    It’s always great to see a British studio leading the charts.

    Cheers,
    Marco
