Hellblade Was the Most Downloaded PS4 Game During August In Europe

Ninja Theory bet on themselves when they decided to self-publish Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and it seems to be paying off. Their latest action game was the most downloaded PS4 game during August 2017 in Europe. It managed to outsell Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which came in second place.

The former number one was the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which fell to fourth place. The list was marked with a number of re-entries into the top 20 (including Rainbow Six Siege at number three), which is a testament to the great sales the PlayStation Store has been having.

For even more on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, check out our Hellblade review. Here’s a snippet of what Paulmichael Contreras had to say:

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a complete experience for a bargain price. Struggling through life as a psychosis sufferer is an alarming experience, and Hellblade provides an illuminating glimpse into the lives of those afflicted by such terror. Combat is visceral, yet on the game’s easiest mode should prove no problem for those interested in experiencing the story. At an asking price of $29.99 USD, the campaign is just long enough to feel like this is money well-spent. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a stellar entry from Ninja Theory, and I can only hope this is the first of many “independent AAA” games to come from the veteran studio.
