The new God of War marks the history of video games



God of War Ragnarök does better than all the titles in its franchise but also better than all the other PlayStation games.

This end of the year was deeply marked by the release of a breathtaking video game. Critically acclaimed, God of War Ragnarok one by one breaks all records on PS5 and PS4. On Twitter, the firm solemnly announces that the title stands out as THE best first-party game launch in PlayStation history. He thus overtakes the previous title holder, The Last of Us Part II.

The latter had sold some 4 million copies in one week, a record that was surpassed by god of war Ragnarök in just three short days. A week after its release, more than 5.1 million units have been sold worldwide, even though the title is only available on PS4 and PS5. This reduced ecosystem has obviously not prevented the game from going around the internet and positioning itself as a leader at the Game Awards 2022.

God of War vs. Elden Ring

God of War Ragnarok has indeed been named in 8 categories, not counting the award for best performance that the actor playing Kratos can also win. To find out if it will be the game of the year, you will have to watch the ceremony next December 8. In the meantime, the latest installment in the franchise is stringing together records, since it also imposes itself as the god of war most popular of all time.

Compared to its predecessor, the highly acclaimed god of war (2018), it achieves 51% more sales in its first week in the UK for physical editions. In the country, he even managed to overtake Elden Ring which promises us a duel at the top during the ceremony which opposes them as games of the year. In the category, we also find A Plague Tale: RequiemStray or Horizon Forbidden West.
