Fallout 4 Sets New Record of Most Concurrent Steam Users, Second Only to Dota 2

Fallout 4 went live only a few hours ago, and it has already managed a very impressive peak of 290,461 concurrent users, holding the number one spot as a non-Valve game.

As of this writing, 239,266 players are now playing Bethesda’s open-world RPG at the same time as the game climbs to the second spot.

For comparison, the PC version of GTA 5 launched back in April, hit a peak number of 196,700, though it managed 300,000 later on.

The numbers are however a little more ambiguous considering GTA 5 was initially launched on consoles before eventually making its way onto the PC. That means, not all users had to connect to Steam in order to play it.

On the other hand, Fallout 4 launched across all platforms at the same time, so those who wanted to play the PC version require Steam to authenticate and play the game.

As for Valve’s own titles, both Dota 2 and Counter-Strike Global Offensive regularly see concurrent user numbers of over half a million.

Still, things are looking great for Fallout 4 especially amid the huge hype it has received in the past several months. Fallout 4 is out now for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
