- God of War Ragnarok is one of the best PlayStation exclusives made to date.
- The devs have confirmed in a new blog post that the game has sold over 15 million units.
- New free DLC is approaching soon for the title, called God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla.
Not looking at just the numbers here, God of War Ragnarok has remained a massive success for what it’s brought to the table for PlayStation fans, being the sequel to the 2018-released God of War and the culmination of Kratos’ story up until now. Santa Monica Studio’s efforts have bore fruit today, therefore, with the developer announcing over 15 million copies sold by the 2022 action-adventure.
“As of November 19, God of War Ragnarök has sold through more than 15 million units worldwide across PS4 and PS5,” confirms Grace Orlady, the Lead Community Manager at Santa Monica. It bears noticing that Ragnarok came out approximately a year ago, and has managed to achieve this milestone in a period of 12 months more or less.In comparison, God of War 2018 has rolled over 23 million units as of November 2022, a feat it clocked in almost 4 years after release despite getting ported to PC. Ragnarok is projected to do significantly better than its predecessor in this regard, having come fairly close in only 1/4th the amount of time. For reference, Ragnarok is PlayStation’s fastest-selling game to date, having sold 5.1 million copies in its debut week.
Oh, and this isn’t all news that recent times have sprung up for Ragnarok. Quite out of nowhere, the devs have revealed the first-ever DLC for the game, and guess what, it’s totally free! Titled God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla, the expansion isn’t standalone and doesn’t seem to be involving Atreus. You also cannot spot Frey anywhere; just trusty old Mimir hanging off Kratos’ behind.
In addition, the premise of Vahlla seems to be built around the protagonist only as it seemingly focuses on new horrors for the Ghost of Sparta. That is to say, the DLC does look bent on taking Kratos back to his old ways, considering the background music that plays during some of the scenes shown in the trailer and all. Goosebumps, really.
