It’s safe to say that God of War Ragnarök isn’t disappointing. The end to Kratos’ Norse saga debuted last week and received an amazing Metacritic score of 94.
God Of War Ragnarök, which received 10 nominations, was now announced to have received the most at this year’s Game Awards. Even though I’ve only been here for nine hours, I can already understand why.
The praise for God Of War Ragnarök doesn’t stop there, either. Upon its release in the UK, the game triumphed over Modern Warfare II, Elden Ring, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
God Of War Ragnarök has had the second biggest boxed launch in the UK this year, trailing only FIFA 23,.
According to GamesIndustry.biz. This indicates that God Of War Ragnarök outsold Elden Ring, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus in terms of boxed copy sales in its first week. To avoid stating the obvious, this statistic exclusively considers tangible sales.
More copies of God Of War Ragnarök were sold on the first day than any other God Of War game was during the first week of release.
Ragnarök, which is already the third best-selling God Of War game of all time, sold 51% more units than God of War did in 2018, according to the statistics company GfK. It shouldn’t take long for Ragnarök to take the top slot, in my opinion. In terms of revenue, it is already second.
The fact that God Of War Ragnarök was included in PlayStation 5 consoles helped the game’s sales. 12% of all first-week sales came from this.
It appears that Kratos is to blame for this, as this has also been the best sales week for PS5s in the UK this year. For many weeks to come, I predict that God Of War Ragnarök’s enormous success will be discussed.
