April was a pretty busy month for PlayStation gamers. From riding around a post-apocalyptic world on a motorcycle in Days Gone, kicking people where it hurts as Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat 11, or trying not to get their faces eaten off by a massive horde of zombies in World War Z, PS4 gamers had a plate's full. That said, Sony Interactive Entertainment has released charts for the best-selling games in April on the PlayStation Store, revealing which title came out on top.
For the month of April, the crown of best-selling digital PS4 game goes to NetherRealm Studios for their latest installment in the long-running fighting game series. Right behind Mortal Kombat 11 is Days Gone, Sony's new IP from Bend. And rounding out the top five is World War Z, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, and MLB The Show 19 in that order. Meanwhile, the PlayStation VR charts are once again topped by Beat Saber, while Apex Legends is sitting pretty on the top of the free-to-play pile.
