The latest gaming sensation, the multiplayer survival game Valheim, continues to grow in popularity. The game just recently surpassed 500,000 concurrent players on Steam, which makes it among the platform’s most popular games ever.
Only Dota 2 (619,000) and CS: GO (1 million) had higher peak concurrent player numbers for February 22, but those games are free-to-play whereas Valheim is a paid game. These numbers came directly from Steam’s own public data and statistics page.
According to IGN, Valheim now holds the record for most concurrent players on Steam for a survival game and the fifth-most concurrent players for any game on the platform of all time. Only CS: GO, PUBG, Dota 2, and Cyberpunk 2077 have reportedly had more concurrent players.
