Monster Hunter: World Sets Biggest New Release Of 2018 Record On Steam

2018 has treated Monster Hunter: World with good fortune, making the game the most loved online new game for consoles when it released about half a year ago. Now, our favorite behemoth hunting title “slays” Steam as well, breaking the record for the biggest new release of 2018 with over 240k concurrent players online.

The PC Master race has been extremely patient about the release of Monster Hunter: World on their console since everyone knew that if it succeeded on Playstation 4 and Xbox One, it sure will on PC as well. This came true today, with the game reaching more than 240k Steam users playing the game at the same time.

Monster Hunter: World hit Steam just today with a price tag of $59.99. More than a quarter of a million players bought it on launch day or had it pre-ordered beforehand. This means that there’s possibly a few hundred more buying the game over the next days, creating a massive amount in revenue for Capcom.

Did we expect such love from the Steam community? We knew it would be a hit but reaching almost the amount of concurrent players Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has is out of this world.

The news about the success of Monster Hunter: World comes from GitHyp, with it reaching the 4th place in the rankings after PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. After it comes Warframe with significantly less online players, coming at barely 85k.

According to the same source, Monster Hunter: World is extremely successful on Twitch as well, with almost 80k viewers right now, even without the contribution of some of the most popular streamers on the platform.
