Pre-release hype catapulted God of War into new gaming territory, as it became PS4’s fastest-selling exclusive game of all time earlier this year.
After its arrival in April 2018, it sold 3.1 million copies in the first three days. Now, several months into its release, we have a better idea of player preferences, and how often players actually win the game, which is not very often.
Kratos has equipment options galore, but the Runweaver Armor set has become the most popular, even though it is rare stock. Found at Thamur’s Corpse on the first visit, the battle gear can be upgraded twice, and consists of Runic Wrymskin Pauldons, Plated Runeweaver Bracers, and a Runeweaver War Belt.
These items are highly favored by the game’s elite players, along with the Talisman of Resolute Protection, which provides a three-second invincibility barrier when it is charged.
You will surely need these possessions, along with a fully-upgraded Leviathan ax and Blades of Chaos if you plan on meeting and defeating Queen Sigrun, the final Valkyrie.
Most folks don’t stand a chance against her, even with the proper gear. For every 25 battles, she wins 24, but in “Give me God of War” Mode, players win only 1 percent of the time, while the easiest approach garners success at a ratio of 12 to 1.
The highest-rated new PS4 release of all time is making history with a 94 on Metacritic, as gamers dive into battle to take on their enemies.
