God of War was Steam’s best-seller last week, ahead of Monster Hunter Rise – Video Games Chronicle

God of War was Steam’s best-selling game by revenue generated last week.

The game took the top spot on the global sales chart ahead of fellow new entry Monster Hunter Rise, which released two days earlier, according to SteamDB.

Sony’s PC port attracted around 60,000 concurrent players on Valve‘s service on its release day, although the figure has since peaked at 73,529.

The total is higher than Sony’s other big first-party PC release Horizon Zero Dawn, which peaked at 56,557 in 2020, while Days Gone managed 27,450 following its release last year.

Because these are Steam-only figures, they do not include sales of PlayStation’s PC titles on the Epic Games Store, where God of War, Horizon and Days Gone are also available.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will also make the jump to PC in 2022.

Developers across the PlayStation Studios network pushed repeatedly for Sony to bring their games to PC, God of War director Cory Barlog said in an interview published last week.

The God of War reboot was originally released for PS4 in 2018 and the PC port was in development for at least two years, Sony Santa Monica also revealed.

“It’s hard to overstate how much better the PC release of God Of War feels when compared to its console counterpart,” according to VGC’s God of War review.

“God of War on PC is the definitive way to play an absolutely essential game,” our verdict reads. “It’s never looked better, bringing into sharp relief an art style that’s colourful, brutal and incredibly inventive with practically faultless performance, even on a machine that isn’t at the absolute bleeding edge of PC technology.”
