Pretty sure this news isn’t going to surprise anyone who has kept up with Horizon Zero Dawn. The game had an enormous amount of hype pre-launch AND for a new franchise, delievered. Show me someone who isn’t enjoying the game! I dare ye’!
So when news broke this morning that HZD broke records as the best selling new Sony PS4 IP, previously set by No Man’a Sky, I don’t think gamers were shocked. But still! To outsell such games as DriveClub, Bloodborne, Knack, and others is pretty damn cool. Guerrilla Games is probably walking around their offices, heads held high, knowing that Aloy is one of the newest PlayStation Icons and she ain’t going nowhere!!
Gfk chart-track providea MORE in-depth analysis of the UK sales from last week.
‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ tops week 9, ahead of ‘The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild’
A bumper week for gaming is led by ‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ which tops the chart as Sony’s biggest ever PS4 launch of a new IP (ahead of No Man’s Sky). Released on Wednesday ‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ is also the biggest launch of the year so far and Sony’s biggest launch since ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’. Ubisoft’s ‘For Honor’ falls from No1 to No5, having to make way for both Horizon Zero Dawn and new Nintendo Switch titles.
There you have it! Aloy is queen and it doesnt look like she’ll be relinquishing that crown anytime soon. You earned it, girl!!!
Have you started Horizon Zero Dawn? If not..what are you waiting for, Brah?!?
