God of War sold 3.1m copies in three days

Thor blimey.

PlayStation 4 exclusive God of War has sold a staggering 3.1m copies in its first three days on sale worldwide. It's the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive to date.

Here in the UK, God of War was the second-biggest week one release so far this year behind Far Cry 5, (based on physical sales only) and the new week one best-seller for the franchise, beating the previous record held by God of War 3 back in 2010.

The game has also received a hugely positive critical reception, and picked up a recommendation from Eurogamer in our God of War review.

"I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to embark on Kratos' latest adventure with us," studio head Shannon Studstill at God of War developer Santa Monica Studio said. "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 favorite God of War gameplay moments that will be remembered for a long time."
