U.K. Charts: Dead Island: Riptide infests the top spot

Zombie sequel Dead Island: Riptide has invaded the U.K. All Format Charts at number one, knocking Injustice: Gods Among Us off the top spot after just one week.
Sales for the Techland-developed action-RPG weren’t nearly as strong as its predecessor though, with Riptide clocking up less than half the launch week sales of the original Dead Island in 2011.
Last week proved pretty strong in terms of new releases, with fantasy RPG Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen entering in third and movie-tie-in Star Trek debuting at number four.
Tomb Raider takes a tumble to five, while BioShock: Infinite loses some altitude and ends up at number six. Sadly, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut failed to make an impact on the charts, limping in at 38.
