Kratos is back with a vengeance. Sony reports that the new God of War game, which takes the Ghost of Sparta and puts him against the gods and monsters of Norse mythology, sold 3.1 million copies in only three days. This makes it the fastest-selling Playstation 4 exclusive ever. Previous entries in the series have sold 4 million copies in their lifetime, which means the new iteration of Kratos should be able to match that with ease.

Santa Monica Studio head Shannon Studstill said: “I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to embark on Kratos’ latest adventure with us. 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.

Here’s a synopsis of the game: Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.
