To provide us with an excellent indication about what was expected Elden Ring it’s not just social networks, flooded with videos and screenshots of FromSoftware’s latest creation. A good figure (and perhaps the best one we can stick to) is certainly the indicator of simultaneous players that the Japanese game has been able to gather around itself in the hours following the launch.
As reported by GameSpot, in fact, Elden Ring it’s not just a title expected from the niche who loved the games of the Dark Souls series and more generally the creations of Hidetaka Miyazaki. The new game from FromSoftware seems to have become a real global phenomenon, which has been able to register over half a million players. We haven’t confirmed yet, but perhaps it could be the best launch ever for the Japanese development team.
Elden Ring peaked at 672,351 players on Steam. A decidedly high number, which is second only to Lost Ark: the new Amazon Games MMO, launched last week on western markets, is in fact ahead of FromSoftware’s title for less than 20,000 players, or a total of 691,723. However, other very important games have been surpassed, such as for example Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Destiny 2, Apex Legends, Rust, Team Fortress 2 and PUBG: Battlegrounds.
Elden Ring’s extraordinary performances go hand in hand with another record: the new game from Hidetaka Miyazaki It is in fact the title of FromSoftware with the highest average rating ever and has managed to overcome Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Bloodborne, universally known as the two best titles ever produced by the Japanese development team. Between the public and the critics, both committed to defending it as one of the best games of this year, we can therefore say it: it was really worth waiting a little less than three years before playing it.
If you haven’t already, you can buy Bloodborne on Amazon.
