Terraria smashes its gamer count records, ending up being Steam’s 4th most-played video game
Now that Terraria: Journey’s End is at last here, it appears a quite eye watering variety of gamers have actually been leaping into the game of late. In the last one month, the sandbox game’s seen an enormous upsurge in both average and peak player counts, smashing its own records for both – and it’s now become the fourth most-played video game on Steam.
That’s according to Terraria’s Steam Charts page, which reveals the action-adventure video game’s peak gamer count has stormed to a tremendous 489.9 k in the last month, miles ahead of the figures it usually sees in the roughly 25-72k area. That figure was published on Might 16, the Journey’s End launch date, according to the website’s chart, though it’s seen peak counts into the hundreds of thousands basically every day considering that.
Similarly, the record for the average Terraria gamer count has actually also been blown away over the last 30 days, with an all-new high of simply under 116k gamers. For context, the previous record was April this year, which saw less than half this (51.3 k), and before that, typical numbers were rather a lot lower.
Head to the Steam most-played lists on both Steam Charts and SteamDB (by all-time peak gamer records) and you’ll see, since this story, it remains in the number four slot, sitting just listed below PUBG, CS: GO, and Dota 2. Phwoar.
