Days Gone is another big success for Sony Interactive Entertainment. Despite the middling reviews, the game has opened to a solid debut in the UK and sold the most physical copies for a game’s launch week in the UK.
Days Gone has managed to beat some of the big names like The Division 2 and even outsold Mortal Kombat 11 during its debut week in the UK. This debut is impressive for several reasons. It is a new IP from a relatively unknown studio on the PS4. Bend Studio hasn’t released a big budget open world game for the PS4 and they were previously limited to the portable systems of Sony.
Days Gone also didn’t fare that well with reviews and while the general consensus is not that bad, it is nowhere close to some of the other first-party exclusive games published by SIE like God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Horizon Zero Dawn. Overcoming all odds, the sales of the game are great and it has outsold Mortal Kombat 11, which had its best launch in the franchise history, this week in the UK.
