Steam: Elden Ring and Lost Ark broke everything in February – News

January had already started the year well on Steam with titles like God of War and The rise of the monster hunter, but none of this was comparable to what was going to happen in February. Even Valve is impressed: “It’s hard to overstate the size of the success Lost Ark and Elden Ring enjoyed on Steam in February. The community’s impatience for these two RPGs was at its peak. Both lived up to the expectations of the millions of fans who, from day one, flooded these worlds. Not only did they skyrocket their player count to become the most played new releases of 2022, but they also ranked second and sixth for most people playing at the same time on Steam of all time.“, we can read in the publication published online.

More than a month after its launch, lost ark and elden ring above all, they have confirmed their excellent launch and continue to cause a sensation day after day, constantly remaining in the top 10 of the most played titles. In the last 24 hours, the former has gathered more than 355,000 players simultaneously, while the latter continues to blow your mind, reaching a peak of 400,000 players at the same time. Unheard of for a FromSoftware game, but probably also for any other game of this style, even if its very important community dimension prevents it from being classified as a “solo game”.

These two big hits would almost make you forget about the other two major releases of the last month, namely Dying Light 2: Stay Human and Total War: Warhammer III, with a special mention for the game from Techland, which finally did not suffer its many delays and showed that it had the support of a community as large as it was loyal. On a more niche record, we also see something positive in the reception given to The King of Fighters XVwhich continues to show the good place that fighting games occupy on Valve’s platform.
