With several countries declaring a state of emergency and forcing people to be quarantined. Many are those who have nothing to do at home, take shelter in the games so that time passes more quickly.
That said, we know that the main gaming platform to benefit from all this, has in fact been Steam. That after announcing last week the record of 20 million users simultaneously on the platform. He announced today that this number has already passed the barrier of 22 million, thus establishing another new record.
Steam reaches the incredible number of 22 million players simultaneously! What are the most played games?
Therefore, although Steam registered this incredible number of 22 million users at the same time, it is important to note that only 7 million players were playing, which in itself is already quite a high number.
Thus, we know what was the top game most played during this flood. And interestingly, the titles are exactly the same as they were in the top 5 when Steam broke the 20 million barrier. We can see Counter-Strike: Go at the top of the table with one million players simultaneously. Followed by other games like Dota 2, PUBG, GTA V and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
PS5 vs Xbox: Microsoft has no significant advantage
In short, this number of users simultaneously tends to grow over the coming times and not only on Steam. After all, other platforms like Epic Games and Origin are currently running fantastic campaigns to attract more players to their platforms. Offering a series of free games and others with truly impressive discounts.
With regard to quarantine, we know that it is likely to continue for some time to come. So you must stay safe by not taking any unnecessary risks.
