It remains to be seen if Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate’s sales were included with Batman: Arkham Origins (if they weren’t, Blackgate didn’t even appear in the top 40), but either way, Arkham Origins debuted in first place with sales nearly equal to those of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Unfortunately, Arkham Origins didn’t do nearly as well as Arkham City’s week 1 total, with the 2011 title doubling the sales of Origins. As for the highest selling Batman game in the UK of all time, that belongs to LEGO Batman.

Here’s the top 15 selling games in the UK for the week ending October 26th:

  1. Batman: Arkham Origins
  2. Grand Theft Auto V (down 28%)
  3. FIFA 14 (down 21%)
  4. Skylanders SWAP Force (down 50%)
  5. Pokemon X
  6. Pokemon Y
  7. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
  8. LEGO Lord of the Rings (up 266%)
  9. Moshi Monsters: Katsuma Unleashed (up 350%)
  10. Just Dance 2014
  11. Disney Infinity
  12. F1 2013
  13. Beyond: Two Souls
  14. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
  15. Rocksmith 2014 Edition

Do you think Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will beat Battlefield 4 this week in the UK, considering it releases early on Tuesday? Let us know in the comments below.
