The figure of 5.1 million “God of War Ragnarok” units shipped covers “copies sold through as of its debut week,” according to the official PlayStation handle on Twitter. The numbers are impressive, but it’s still a long way off from the lifetime sales of 2018’s “God of War,” which stand at 23 million copies. However, given the noticeably better critical reception for the latest game compared to its predecessor, it won’t be surprising to see “God of War Ragnarok” surpassing those numbers within the next few years. Sony hasn’t shared plans for a PC release yet, but if the 2018 title is anything to go by, it’s successor might get one, as well. Just not anytime soon.

“God of War Ragnarok” concludes the saga of vengeful-turned-sane Greek god Kratos, who ventures into the Norse realm with his son Atreus, but again finds himself against a pantheon of gods in the way of a prophesized destiny. The game introduces new synergic combo attacks for the two lead characters, fresh weapon capabilities and upgrades, and of course, a higher fidelity gaming experience that goes all the way up to 4K 60 fps courtesy of the PlayStation 5. “God of War Ragnarok” is now out for the PlayStation 4 and its successor, and it is available in standard, digital deluxe, and collector’s editions.
