Monster Hunter World Tops PS4's Best-Selling Games On PSN For January 2018

Here are last month's most-download PS4 games.


Now that the first month of the new year is behind us, Sony has revealed the list of best-selling games on the PlayStation Store for January 2018. Last month saw two major releases arrive for PS4--Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ--and unsurprisingly, the pair took the top two spots for the month in the US.

Capcom's co-op action RPG was the most-download PS4 title in January 2018, edging out the Arc System Works'-developed Dragon Ball fighting game. Coming in at No. 3 for the month was Madden NFL 18, with Call of Duty: WWII and Human Fall Flat following at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively. The rest of the top ten is comprised of the usual suspects, with Grand Theft Auto V, Rainbow Six Siege, and The Last of Us Remastered all appearing on the chart.

Monster Hunter World also proved to be popular across the pond, taking the top spot on Europe's best-sellers chart. Horizon Zero Dawn came in at No. 2 for the month, while FIFA 18 rounded out the top three. You can find the full list of Europe's best-selling games on the PlayStation Store here.

This time around, rather than highlighting the month's best-selling DLC, Sony shared the most-downloaded free-to-play games. This, unsurprisingly, was topped by Fortnite: Battle Royale, Epic's incredibly popular PUBG-like shooter. Following Fortnite were the fighting game Brawlhalla and PES 2018 Lite, while Paladins and America's Army: Proving Grounds rounded out the top five.

January's most-downloaded PSVR game was Job Simulator, while the best-selling Vita title for the month was Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker's Memory.
