Helldivers 2 Surpasses God of War as Most Played PlayStation Game on Steam


  • Helldivers 2 beat God of War on Steam, a big win for the action shooter.
  • Fans are hyped for the God of War trilogy remake and fan-made version.
  • Final Fantasy XVI and God of War Ragnarök are gaining buzz for gameplay and sales.

Helldivers 2 has emerged as the new reigning champion on Steam, dethroning God of War as the most-played PlayStation game on the platform. This milestone marks a significant achievement for the action-packed third-person shooter developed by Arrowhead Game Studios.

Helldivers 2: A triumph on steam

Released for PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam, Helldivers 2 combines elements reminiscent of Starship Troopers and Gears of War, offering players an immersive experience as elite soldiers combating space bugs across galaxies. 

The game’s simple yet engaging objectives—killing space bugs, delivering freedom to planets, and having fun—have resonated well with players, reflected in overwhelmingly positive reviews and user scores.

The God of War franchise, known for its iconic status in the gaming world, faced tough competition from Helldivers 2 on Steam. Despite its groundbreaking success on PlayStation consoles, the 2018 reboot of God of War yielded its top position to the newcomer.

Excitement for potential remakes and future releases

Amidst the buzz surrounding Helldivers 2 and God of War, rumors of a potential remake of the original God of War trilogy for the PlayStation 5 have sparked excitement among fans. While awaiting confirmation, a fan-made Unreal Engine 5 remake has garnered attention for its stunning visuals, reigniting nostalgia for the beloved series.

In the realm of PlayStation exclusives, Final Fantasy XVI has emerged as a highly anticipated title, with early previews receiving glowing praise for its gripping gameplay and visually stunning world. As players await its release, debates continue over whether any game has truly pushed the limits of the PlayStation 5’s capabilities despite being two years into its lifespan.

Player preferences and sales success

According to the Players’ Choice: Best of PS5 polls conducted by PlayStation, God of War Ragnarök has been hailed as “unmissable” by players, reaffirming its status as a standout title on the platform. Boasting impressive sales figures, the game has surpassed milestones, including becoming the fastest-selling first-party game for Sony and receiving numerous nominations at The Game Awards.
