What was PlayStation Store’s most downloaded game of 2018?

FIFA 19 finishes ahead of Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2 in the annual chart

FIFA 19 avoided trigger-happy soldiers, world-weary cowboys and axe-wielding gods to secure the end of year top spot as the most downloaded game on PS4’s digital storefront in 2018.

Black Ops 4, Red Dead Redemption 2 and God of War followed close behind, with a handful of older releases, including Grand Theft Auto V, Gang Beasts, Rocket League and Need for Speed: Payback also holding firm in the top 20.

On PlayStation VR, rhythm action slasher Beat Saber topped a strong year for the platform, with Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Moss and Firewall: Zero Hour also making their mark on the download chart. And the battle royale genre demonstrated its strength in 2018 on the DLC chart, with Fortnite securing an incredible eight spots in the DLC top 20 for the year.

  • Moss is the best VR game I have played, more of you should try it.

  • Horizon Zero Dawn, although released in early 2017, still annihilated GT Sport in sales for 2018. Over a year on, GT Sport hasn’t even beaten GT 5’s MONTH ONE sales and PS3 didn’t have as much units sold when GT5 released as opposed to the massive sales of PS4 when GT Sport released.

    I hope you learned something from this Sony. Listen to us next time when we tell you outright we aren’t interested in a pointlessly online focused game, especially for a series that never was. Do you think Bethesda didn’t just learn that the hard way themselves although, its funny, you would think GT Sport would have made them cop on well in advance.

    EA are just about to feel the burn from cancelling Amy Hennig’s Uncharted Star Wars game over a year and a half ago too because they were too busy trying to integrate loot boxes into everything at the time while spending the last 4 years making a Destiny clone, Destiny, a game Activision doesn’t even want anymore. Talk about a bubble bursting on something lol.

    • Couldn’t agree more about Gran Turismo. It just lost everything about the series that appealed to me and most other players. I don’t buy a game like that to race online. I buy it for the most comprehensive, deepest, most exhaustive racing sim I can get on the console. I loved Project Cars, but even that didn’t come close to the older GT titles. I really hope the series comes back with a bang, but unfortunately it won’t. They don’t care, they don’t listen.

  • The fact that GTA V is still on there shows that this whole rating system is pathetically rigged.

    Who the hell doesn’t own a copy of it already? It’s not even that good.

    • So you mean Rockstar pay Sony to show up on the nr 1 spot, thats your theory?

    • Im not sure what you’re implying, how can you rig a chart? unless you’re saying Rockstar are buying thousands and thousands of copies of their own game across thousands of new accounts just to stay in the annual chart.

    • The game is in the sale with the shark card money. People buy the game again just to get the online currency cheaper.

    • @Max Diehard – what a muppet. Yes, I’m sure the chart is rigged. Rolling eyes so hard.

    • GTA V. is basically evergreen. It never stopped selling since it’s first debut .

  • Trash Fortnite DLC’s, Fifa and GTA V in every single year. What a surprise!

    • I understand why people dont like Fortnite, but calling the game itself trash is just stupid. The servers work almost all the time, the game run smoothly on every device, so hardly trash. And Fifa and GTA are popular games, not a surprise at all. Question is why it bother you so much?

    • I play it as well sometimes.. But I called the DLC’s trash..

      Why does it bother me? Because it happens in every single year. It’s just really show that the gamers don’t have any kind of taste. Always the microtransaction filled games are on the top. And let’s just face it, Fifa packs or whatever they called are gambling in FUT. GTA V, I believe it’s popular because of the online mode where you can spend all your hard earned money. But wait a minute… Only kids playing that, and microtransactions are made for them. Skins, weapon camos, new cars, pink tanks were made for them. Because they don’t know where the money comes from.

  • “FIFA 18 finishes ahead of Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2 in the annual chart” – you surely mens FIFA 19.

  • Gang Beasts at #8, very random but well deserved, it’s a fun local multiplayer game! Also hell yeah to Beat Saber, Astrobot Rescue Mission and Superhot VR, three games absolutely worth owning PSVR for!

  • Why I can’t play in Europe fallout 76 with portugese or Brazilian language?! [DELETED] bathesda is doing and Sony?! If in Brasil they have the portuguese subtitles, why I can. T have in Europe?!


    Such a shame,8 spend money and my time in a game, and this is what they give to us, no respect to the consumer!!

  • I find it odd that the Destiny 2 Expansion Pass placed above the Forsaken Expansion itself considering you need Forsaken to play the pass content. Highly suspect!

  • PlayStation Turkey had a competition for new year and they show us – (The Turkish PS fans ) – scandal !!!!! They contest and they win . The only reason to hate Playstation in Turkey is PLAYSTATION TURKEY community.

  • dont bother with numbers Mr Sony….
