Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor & The Sims 4 Are – Once Again – This Week’s Best Selling PC Games

The latest PC UK retail and Steam digital charts have been revealed and as we can see, The Sims 4 and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor are – once again – this week’s best selling PC titles.

There is seriously nothing that can come close to The Sims 4’s sales in UK. Our guess is that Football Manager 2015 will be able to surpass EA’s title but until then, The Sims 4 will undoubtetly enjoy its throne. Alien: Isolation and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor are in second and third place, respectively, followed by FIFA 15, Stronghold Crusader II, Wolfenstein: The New Order and Rome: Total War II’s Emperor’s Edition. And in the last three places we find Diablo III, The Elder Scrolls Online, and the standard Edition of Rome: Total War II.

As always, Steam’s charts show a completely different image, proving the difference between the digital and the retail sales of PC games. Monolith’s LOTR game is in the first place, followed by Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Alien: Isolation and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth and Life is Feudal: Your Own are in the fifth and sixth places, respectively, followed by the standalone version of DayZ, Styx: Master of Shadows, Kerbal Space Program and NBA 2K15.

Here are the complete charts:
