New From Software title Elden Ring has surpassed 764,000 concurrent players on Steam following its launch.
According to SteamDB, the game hit a peak of 764,835 simultaneous players on Steam hours of its release earlier today (Friday, February 25th). It reached this record at around 02:00 GMT, just two hours after it was launched.
At the time of writing, the game has 532,463 concurrent players.
The title was set to launch in January 2021 but was bumped into February.
The week before its launch, pre-orders for the game were the second-highest selling item on Steam.
Ahead of release, there was footage leaked from Elden Ring, perhaps an indication of just how anticipated the game was. Reviews also place it as one of the best PC games ever made, at the time of writing.
