God of War Ragnarök day one UK sales surpassed those of 2018’s launch week

Mimir, that's impressive!

God of War Ragnarök is already pulling in some impressive numbers for Sony.

According to charts firm GfK, the game's day one physical sales in the UK were greater than "any other full-week launch sales for other titles in this franchise".

Speaking to GameIndustry.biz, GfK boss Dorian Bloch stated "God of War Ragnarök will debut at No.1" on next week's sales charts, while noting it is the "first cross-gen title in the series".

Considering digital downloads are not included in this statement from GfK, God of War Ragnarök looks on course to be one of the best performing first party Sony games.

In addition to this, Bloch also revealed more than half of PlayStation 5 console sales this week were part of Sony's promotional God of War bundle.

Eurogamer recently awarded God of War Ragnarök a Recommended badge, with Chris calling it a "triumphant return" for the series.
