Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice only released two days ago, but it's already the fourth most played game on Steam and it's currently beating off Warframe and Rainbow Six Siege to secure a spot in the top five games for concurrent players.Right now, there's upwards of 104,000 players taking on From Software's latest challenge, which - of course - doesn't even take those playing on console into account. According to Steam Charts (thanks, PC Gamer), it peaked at just over 124,266 concurrent players.It's got some way before it breaks into the top three, though. While it's currently more popular than Grand Theft Auto V and Team Fortress 2, Sekiro sits 390K players behind third place Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which is currently sporting 494,286 concurrents... and to knock Dota 2 off the top spot, Sekiro would need to notch up another 800K or so players. That said, it's a huge achievement for a primarily single-player experience.As Wes points out, there's an interesting debate right now … [Read more...] about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is already Steam’s fourth most-played game

Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice's outstanding combat is clearly a hit with players: as of writing, more than 120,000 people are playing it, and its daily peak is more than 125,000, making it the fourth most-played game on Steam today ahead of Rainbox Six Siege. It's a monumental launch: bigger, even, than Devil May Cry 5, which was itself Capcom's second biggest PC launch ever, topping out at around 85,000 concurrent players, according to Steam Charts.Sekiro won't be climbing higher up the Steam ladder: in third place is CS:GO, which has more than 600,000 players at a time. But it's yet more evidence, as if we needed it, that excellent singleplayer games can still pull in huge audiences. You can read Tom's review in progress here: the highlight is the timing-based combat, which to me feels more rewarding than in any of the Dark Souls games. … [Read more...] about Sekiro reaches 125,000 concurrent players, fourth most-played on Steam
We play video games a lot here at GameRevolution, but considering our job is to provide all the latest coverage on the industry’s new releases, we typically don’t get to spend a great deal of time with one particular game. However, over the years there have been certain games that have been so engrossing we’ve had to stop whatever we were doing, dedicating all of our spare time to playing them. We asked the GR editorial team which games they’ve spent the most time playing over the years, and their results ranged from addictive multiplayer titles through to life-consuming RPGs. As always, leave your own responses in the comments section below, and we’ll feature our favorite in tomorrow’s Tell GR. Paul Tamburro, executive editor: “It’s gotta be a tie between Super Mario World and Halo 2. I played the former religiously as a kid, completing it more times than I can count, while Halo 2 was pretty much … [Read more...] about Tell GR: What is your most played game?
Steam’s Top 100 most-played games of 2018 was released this week (H/T Reddit) and Valve’s own card battle game, Artifact, didn’t manage to break into that list. Artifact has been making waves for all the wrong reasons since launching in November last year as players were left disappointed by the game’s lack of replayability. According to SteamCharts, Artifact boasted a fairly hefty player base on its release day, with just over 60,000 players recorded. Though by the end of December that number had dropped significantly, with 3,103 recorded on December 31. And the game hasn’t managed to record more than 10,000 players at once since December 21. The numbers mean that Artifact has been beaten by Devolver Digital’s survival game Scum, Jurassic World Evolution, and multi-platform space sim, No Man’s Sky. Artifact currently sits in the “Mixed” category in Steam, with many user reviews blasting the game for what they argue is a … [Read more...] about Steam’s Top 100 Most Played Games Didn’t Include Valve’s Artifact
While Valve was quick to fix a hole in its API that allowed access to data about the games sold on its the digital platform, Steam, it wasn't quite quick enough to stop Steam Spy creator Sergey Galyonkin extracting enough data to formulate a list of Steam's 1000 most-played games.Unlike the list Steam revealed a few days ago which confirmed the best selling games of 2018 so far, Galyonkin was able to gather information on the most played games before access to achievement tracking was shuttered. While it's inevitable the data won't be accurate forever, the information Galyonkin shared with Ars Technica was correct as at July 1, 2018. As the list doesn't take account of games that don't offer achievements, the rankings excludes 10,000 of its 23,000-ish games, including Dota 2. The full list of 1000 games can be found at Ars Technica, but here's the Top 10:Team Fortress 2Counter-Strike: Global OffensivePlayerUnknown's BattlegroundsUnturnedLeft 4 Dead 2PayDay 2Garry's … [Read more...] about Here’s Steam’s 1000 most-played games
