NetherRealm's brutal fighter and Bend Studio's zombie action adventure were the most downloaded games on PlayStation 4 in April 2019. Mortal Kombat 11 took the first spot in the NA region, while Days Gone was the most popular in EU.

Sony have shared their monthly list of the most downloaded games on PlayStation 4. As always, the list is split into standard games, VR games, free to play titles and PS4 themes. 

In the month of April 2019, we saw two major releases on PlayStation 4 - SIE Bend Studio's zombie action adventure Days Gone and the eleventh instalment in NetherRealm's brutal fighter franchise Mortal Kombat.

As expected, these two topped the charts in North America and Europe regions. According to Sony's data, Days Gone managed to top the most downloaded game chart on European PSN, while Scorpion and the gang were more popular on North American PSN.

It looks like that outside of North America, Days Gone is doing more than fine. According to recent reports, Bend Studio's title outsold God of War in its first week in Japan, and also for the third time in a row, it topped the UK physical sales charts.

As for the rest of the list, another zombie shooter managed to come very close to the top. It's Saber Interactive's World War Z that took the third spot, while the reveal of Borderlands 3 helped the sales of Borderlands Game of the Year Edition, which is in fourth place.

Beat Saber is still leading the VR charts with Job Simulator and Superhot VR in second and third respectively.  On the list of free to play games, Respawn Entertainment's battle royale Apex Legends is the champion, followed closely by Epic's Fortnite.
