God of War has always been among the most successful games that Sony has ever produced, but now even a shadow of doubt concerning that is removed. Sony has declared that God of War has sold 3.1 million copies in the first three days of release, which makes it the fastest selling PlayStation 4 exclusive game ever.
With the critical success of the game where every single reviewer showered the game praises for bold new take with a very different storyline and gameplay style, the game was bound to do good. And this makes God of War a top competitor even among the games available for other platforms.
God of War is a restart of the famed series, where Kratos has grown old and the game moves away from the Greek pantheon of gods to Norse ones. In this instalment, Kratos makes the journey with his son Atreus, and has a much more humane experience. We can see glimpses of the old rage filled Kratos, but a more mature and foreboding father has taken the forefront of his character. And with the new RPG elements, this is a whole new game altogether.
The new record set by God of War just makes it the clear favored child of Sony and bigger than games like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Horizon Zero Dawn. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has topped the PlayStation 4 list of most sold games of all-time with 8.7 million sales since launching in 2016. While Horizon Zero Dawn has sold 7.6 million copies since it launched in 2016. And this could turn out to be a great year for Sony with another PS4 exclusive lined up, namely Spider-Man.
