There’s no doubt that God of War has quickly become one of the most popular games ever released for the PlayStation 4. It’s the latest iteration in this very popular franchise and it has been very well received on Sony’s gaming platform. Sony today announced that the new title has achieved a major milestone. It has become the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive title in the console’s history.
The new God of War game was released on April 20th. Sony announced today that it sold 3.1 million units globally in the first three days after launch (April 20-22). This makes God of War the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive ever.
The title went in a slightly different direction compared to earlier God of War games. They focused on Greek mythology and were heavy on the action. This new title is focused on Norse mythology and while it’s not exactly light in the action department, it does have a more meaningful story that’s centered around a father-son duo.
Fans have really liked this new direction and have responded in kind by picking up God of War in droves. It has only been a couple of weeks since the game was released so one can expect that it will sell millions more in the months to come.
