Elden Ring soars to its most players in a year


Elden Ring is two years old. It’s hard to imagine that FromSoftware’s biggest cultural phenomenon since Dark Souls has been with us for two whole years, but it has. In that time we’ve finally got our first look at Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree, a release date for the DLC, and so many great mods you could blindly pick one from a hat. Now though, Elden Ring has seen a spike on Steam, and the concurrent players have even re-entered the six figures. Yes, really. I don’t doubt that when the Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree release date drops, FromSoftware’s open-world game will crest the one million Steam players mark. We got very close at launch in 2022, and like some sort of omen of things to come, Elden Ring passes the 100,000 Steam players mark right before its second birthday. Sunday, February 25 2024 marks the second anniversary of Elden Ring, with 100,936 players in the game at the same time the day before. The last time Elden Ring got close to this was on Sunday, January 6 this year, with 99,048 concurrents. Before that, it only crested six figures twice, once in January 2023 and at launch, when it peaked at 950,000 concurrents before slowly leveling out.
