The Spring Sale has been running in the PlayStation Store for more than three weeks. We have already told you which of the more than 1,000 offers for PS4 and PS5 we particularly recommend during this time other items explained. Apparently you only partially listened to us, because the list of actual bestsellers looks very different.
Spring Sale on PlayStation Store: over 1,000 offers for PS4 & PS5
In this article, we will introduce you to the ten games that, according to the Listing on PlayStation Store currently at the top. It should be noted: Since the sale runs until April 27th, the final result is not yet certain. Also, some games left the sale a week ago and are therefore not listed. So the bestseller list isn’t 100% accurate, but it’s still interesting, not least because of a few surprises.
WWE 2K22 – The most important innovations in the first trailer
The fact that WWE 2K22 is one of the bestsellers of the spring sale is certainly due to the fact that the wrestling game was only released shortly before the start of the sale. The fact that WWE 2K22 has taken a huge step forward compared to its disappointing predecessor should also have helped. Last but not least, the core gameplay convinces with the completely redesigned controls and a successful counter system. In addition, the scope is impressive with almost 200 fighters, many different locations and a whole range of different modes. In addition, the wrestling atmosphere comes across well, even if there are technical weaknesses, especially in the faces.

Farming Simulator 22 – The trailer goes to Erlengrat
Farming Simulator 22 is also still quite young, but it owes its place on the bestseller list not only to its topicality, but also and above all to the enormous popularity of the series, especially in Germany. As always, the latest part is also about a realistic, but relaxed and not too complicated simulation of work on the farm, with farming and animal husbandry. With the bees, a new animal species has been added to the six animal species already included in the predecessor. This time there are also three maps with different landscapes: The American Elmcreek, the Erlengrat in Switzerland and the French Haut-Beyleron.

Review video of The Last of Us Part 2 – Why this game will change story games forever
The Last of Us 2 has earned its place among the bestsellers. Even if some fans of the first part did not agree with every twist of the story, the technical quality of the action game and its elaborate staging are beyond doubt. Not only is a detailed and atmospheric end-time world presented to us, but the animations, especially of the faces, are of the highest level, which conveys the emotional plot in a convincing manner. The possibilities of the PS4 were once again impressively demonstrated here. Gameplay is still a mix of shooting, sneaking and exploration, but the latter has become more important with the larger areas.

Call of Duty Vanguard shows 9 minutes of gameplay from the campaign
Of course, there can’t be a bestseller list without at least one Call of Duty. With Vanguard, the series sends us back to World War II. This time we play the members of a special unit that is supposed to prevent the Nazis’ mysterious Project Phoenix. The varied campaign lets us, among other things, attack anti-aircraft guns on the Atlantic coast, play a sniper in Stalingrad and fight against Rommel’s tanks in Africa. The multiplayer is once again very fast. Not only because of the low time to kill, but also because of the compact maps, sometimes only moments pass between respawn and death.

Cyberpunk 2077: Launch trailer for patch 1.5 and next-gen version
It’s no surprise that Cyberpunk 2077 is among the bestsellers of the PS Store Spring Sale. Despite all the criticism of its bad condition at the time of release, it ended up being a very good action role-playing game. The dark atmosphere of the dystopian city of Night City and the many exciting and unusual stories it has to tell make up for the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 could not live up to all of the very high expectations. On top of that, the PS5 version finally came out earlier this year, delivering graphical improvements as well as a constant 60fps in Performance mode. Of course, the very low price of 24.99 euros should also have contributed to the sales success.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War – The launch trailer gets you in the mood for the story
With Black Ops Cold War, the predecessor of Call of Duty: Vanguard also made it onto the bestseller list. This part of the series also offers a comparatively varied story campaign: this time, as a member of a special unit, we are hunting down a Russian terrorist, which takes us, for example, to the Ukraine, to East Berlin and to the Yamantau Mountains. Flashbacks even take us to the Vietnam War. In addition to the usual bombast, there are quieter sneak passages. The multiplayer has a similarly high pace as Vanguard. We really liked the modes, which offer both familiar and new ideas. With the maps, on the other hand, our impression was rather mixed.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – Test video for the single player hit
The Deluxe Edition of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which includes the main game, various in-game items, a digital art book and a behind-the-scenes video, has made it one of the bestsellers. The action game was already a big sales success when it was released, which is probably due to the fact that Star Wars fans had to wait many years for a high-quality single-player adventure. Jedi: Fallen Order also convinces with its exciting lightsaber fights, in which we can of course also use various powers. In addition, the different planets we visit throughout the campaign exude a lot of Star Wars atmosphere, despite the rather mediocre story.

Red Dead Redemption 2 – Spoiler-free test video: Why Rockstar gets a 96 from us
Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the biggest open world hits of the PS4 generation. So it’s no surprise that the western epic is on this list. It not only impresses with its huge and authentic-looking game world, which with its deserts, forests, snow-capped mountain peaks and picturesque valleys is even more varied than in its predecessor. The story and its staging can also captivate and need not hide from any western film classic. In addition to the main game, the Ultimate Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 contains the additional bank robbery mission as well as various other additional content, both for the story mode and for Red Dead Online.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Characters of Ragnarok introduced in the Deepdive trailer
Dawn of Ragnarok (or The Mark of Ragnarok) for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the only expansion in the top ten best-selling Spring Sale expansions. She owes her success not only to the popularity of the main game, but also to the young release date of March 10th. However, the add-on also has a lot to offer, not only because it adds a new area with around 35 hours of gameplay, but also because it brings a breath of fresh air to the Viking game with its setting in Norse mythology. We must save Odin’s son Baldr who was kidnapped by fire giant Surt. For this we are given new, divine powers.

Need for Speed Heat – Test video for the best NfS in a long time
A certain sales success is almost guaranteed with the name Need for Speed. The fact that Heat is still so popular almost two and a half years after its release already shows that it is one of the stronger parts of the famous racing game series. In fact, it has evolved quite a bit compared to its predecessors and has become a bit more demanding, partly due to the better enemy AI. Nevertheless, it is still an arcade racer that relies primarily on breakneck speed. Also, Heat offers tuning down to the smallest detail and varied gameplay by dividing it into illegal street races at night and official competitions during the day.
