Steam managed to set a new record for the concurrent users during last weekend, SteamDB has confirmed.
According to SteamDB’s official Twitter account, Steam managed to hit a new record of over 14 million concurrent users over the weekend. This is certainly huge and something we do not hear every day.

I also think that the recently ended Steam Winter Sale had a part to play in the achievement.
Valve recently rolled out a new client beta update which brought full support for Xbox One and Xbox 360 controllers.
This essentially means that players can customize inputs and tailor their gameplay experience as they see fit. This should come in handy in games like Dark Souls, The Witcher, Street Fighter, and more in which some players are not comfortable with the default layout.
Prior to this, Steam also officially received support for Playstation’s Dualshock 4 controller with the ability to customize inputs and gyro. To read up more, head over to the post!
You can find more detail on the statistics and information on individual games on Steam official website.
Having played Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin all weekend long, I can say I contributed a little. What about you? Let us know in the comments section below!
