Elden Ring Steam has nearly six times the software’s all-time high

Elden Ring is finally out after years of anticipation and it looks like the hype that has been building since its announcement in 2019 has paid off for From Software.

That’s because less than 24 hours after release, Elden Ring’s Steam numbers (courtesy SteamDB, which tracks the number of players in a game) are already almost six times higher than From Software’s previous all-time high. That previous peak lies in Dark Souls III, which has a peak playerbase of 129,975. Elden Ring’s current all-time high is 764,835, which is about 5.9 times higher than Dark Souls III’s.

This is an impressive feat but not necessarily surprising. Elden Ring received a 10 out of 10 from game informant, and we’re not the only outlet to give it so much praise. In fact, the official Elden Ring Twitter account posted an image with some of the 10 out of 10 reviews the game received and it’s so wild it almost looks like Photoshop (it’s not – Elden Ring is just so good it seems ):

For reference, here’s a breakdown of From Software’s highest SteamDB numbers for its previous Souls-like titles released on PC:

  • Ring of Elden: 764 835
  • sekiro: 125 315
  • Dark Souls III: 129,975
  • Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin: 12 106
  • Dark Souls II: 79,528
  • Dark Souls Remastered: 24,501
  • Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition: 11,259

Another thing to keep in mind is that these player numbers are for PC only. There are still a lot of people playing on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, which means there are probably millions of gamers playing the latest version from From Software right now.
