After a few weeks at the top, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was knocked off by The Elder Scrolls Online, which launched last week for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The Elder Scrolls Online becomes the third title in 2015 to sell more than 100,000 copies in its first week, besting Battlefield Hardline but remaining behind The Witcher 3 as the biggest title so far this year. It’s also Bethesda’s first #1 title since Wolfenstein: The New Order over a year ago.

In terms of other new releases, LEGO Jurassic World is in 2nd while PayDay 2 Crimewave Edition is in 4th.
