Released on November 9 on PlayStation consoles, God of War Ragnarok seems to be a real success, even greater than that of God of War 2018. Indeed, in just one day, Ragnarok did better than its elder in a week at our English neighbours.
And if the Santa Monica title seems very well on its way to winning several prizes at the Game Awards, here is that God of War Ragnarok is also one of the most viewed games on Twitch.
Kratos seems to seduce on Twitch!
Last week was a pretty big week in terms of releases since, although we got Ragnarok, we also got Sonic Frontiers. So, thanks to DomTheBomb on the social network Twitter, we learned that God of War Ragnarok got off to a great start on Twitch with no less than 478,014 concurrent viewers watching Kratos and Atreus set off on their new adventure, which makes title of Santa Monica the second biggest launch of a PlayStation title on Twitch, just behind The Last of Us: Part II which gathered no less than 508,051 simultaneous spectators.
Moreover, its success does not stop there only since at the time of writing these lines, no less than 19,607,583 hours of viewing have been recorded since its release on November 9 , which is quite simply huge.
This therefore makes God of War Ragnarok one of the most watched games on the Twitch platform last week, overtaking at the same time Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 which appeared on October 28 on PlayStation consoles. Xbox and PC. As reported on the FinalWeapon.net site, only the biggest games like League of Legends, Counter-Strike and GTA 5 stayed ahead of the Santa Monica title. And if we had to find an explanation following this crazy success on Twitch: the 2018 opus had unleashed passions, and players naturally want to know what happened next. Moreover, the fact that the Santa Monica title is a PlayStation exclusive naturally attracts players from other platforms .
