God of War Ragnarök, the latest installment in the God of War franchise, has proven to be a massive success since its release in November 2022. The action-adventure game developed by Santa Monica Studio has already sold over 11 million copies worldwide in just three months.

This is a remarkable feat for the God of War series, which has been a staple of the gaming industry since its first release in 2005. The latest game builds upon the foundation of the first title, offering a stunningly detailed world, visceral combat, and an emotionally charged story.

Impressive Sales Figure

The sales number is even more impressive due to the fact that the game is exclusive to PlayStation. Imagine the sales figure if the title was available on Xbox and PC as well, the former of which will probably get the game in a few years.

GOW: Ragnarök sold 5.1 million copies in its very first week, beating the previous record of 4 million copies held by The Last of Us Part 2. It also took more than two years for TLOU to break the 10 million copies milestone, and GOW achieved it in just three months.

About the Game

The success of God of War Ragnarök can also be attributed to the universal acclaim it received from both fans and critics. Reviewers have praised the game for its tight gameplay, beautiful graphics, and passionate storytelling.

The game takes players on a journey with Kratos, formerly known as the Ghost of Sparta, as he embarks on a quest to stop the end of the world that he caused in the first place. The game is set in the world of Norse mythology and features an impressive cast of gods, monsters, and creatures from the Norse pantheon including Odin, Freya, Thor, and more.

One of the biggest draws of God of War Ragnarök is its beautiful graphics and stunningly detailed environments. The game is a visual feast, with breathtaking landscapes and epic battles that showcase the power of PlayStation 5. The game also features a more personal and intimate storyline as players follow Kratos on his journey and get to know him on a deeper level.
