Chart-Track has confirmed that Mortal Kombat X has become the U.K.’s second biggest video game launch of 2015, with the bloody beat-’em-up topping the All Format Chart following its launch on April 14.
Not only that, but Mortal Kombat X has recorded the series’ biggest ever opening in the U.K. since the franchise launched in the early 90s.
In terms of sales, the PS4 version of the game made up 61 percent of copies sold, with Xbox One eating up 38 percent. The PS3 and Xbox 360 editions of NetherRealm’s brawler won’t go on sale until summer, however.
Mortal Kombat X’s success has finally brought about an end to Battlefield Hardline’s chart reign, which falls to third place as GTA V moves to second place. Check out the full Top 20 below and read our Mortal Kombat X review here.
