God of War, Detroit: Become Human, H1Z1, and More Top PlayStation Store Downloads in May 2018

Right before E3 kicks off, the latest charts for top downloads in the PlayStation Store included heavy hitters such as God of War, Detroit, and more.

E3 is right around the corner and while many PlayStation fans are eager to see the upcoming games for the system such as Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us: Part II, the current crop of games on PlayStation remains strong, according to the latest PlayStation Store sales charts.

Over on the PlayStation Blog (and right before E3), Sony has revealed the games that took the top spots for PlayStation console owners in the past month, which featured quite a variety of newer titles mixed in with some old favorites.

As far as top-selling PS4 titles go, God of War took the top spot for May in the US (holding the top spot now for two months in a row), while over in Europe, Detroit: Become Human was the top title for PS4 owners, with the game having launched at the end of the month.

Aside from those titles, a notable entry was the debut of H1Z1 on PS4, as the title was the most downloaded of the Free-to-Play games for PS4 owners last month, having even topped some of the system’s juggernauts like Fortnite.

The full lists of the top-selling games on the PlayStation Store for last month can be found below:
