Stellar Blade might not be having the best of times right now. Despite having all the aspects of a brilliant game, the open-world title had to face a lot of criticism right after its release. The game was accused of false advertising, and the situation got so bad that PlayStation had to refund all the digital versions of the game.

Even after being released just four days before the end of the month, the game still got the achievement. Hence, the game got just four days to show its worth competing with pre-existing titles from April like Sand Land, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, Tales of Kenzera: Zau, and many more. Also, this game was the first leap of Shift Up in the AAA arena, so the achievement itself is huge.

Even the fans agree with this achievement of the game.

Another accolade drops into the bag of the Stellar Blade. According to The PlayStation blog, the game takes the second spot on the list of PlayStation’s best-selling titles for April 2024. It is interesting to note that despite having other games as competitors that were on the scene for a long time, Stellar Blade was able to beat all of them except one and that too just for five days in April.

The first game on that list, without any surprise, is Helldivers 2. However, beating titles like Sea of Thieves, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, MLB The Show 24, and many more in that short period was a huge ask for this shift, and they did it in style. It will be fascinating to see the exact number of sales when Sony reveals them soon. Surely many records are going to be broken in terms of most sales in the shortest time.

Stellar Blade‘s Players’ Choice title is a breath of fresh air after so many controversies. We hope the game rises to its glory more.
