The PS4 exclusive God of War game managed to sell an incredible 3.1 million copies in the first three days of release. This is officially the fastest selling PS4 exclusive ever. This is even more mind blowing considering that it is only for the PS4.
Many people have said that this brings back the classic games with an incredible story and gameplay and no pay to win aspects which we have become annoyingly accustomed to over the past few years. We take our hat off to the game and to the whole team behind it.
The new God of War game also picked up many a positive reviews by top critics. It even drove the director of the game to tears when he saw all the positive reviews.
Here is what the team had to say about the incredible reception of the game.
Studio head Shannon Studstill at God of War developer Santa Monica Studio had this to say:
“I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to embark on Kratos’ latest adventure with us”
“Your support is truly inspiring, and it’s a reason why we push ourselves every day to go beyond the boundaries of play.”
“I’d also like to thank our Creative Director, Cory Barlog, and Director of Product Development, Yumi Yang and our entire amazing team at Santa Monica Studio. The belief in the game’s vision and the passion for storytelling across the team is undeniable. We look forward to hearing more about how fans are creating new memories of their favourite God of War gameplay moments that will be remembered for a long time.”
