Palworld is now Steam’s all-time second highest game in concurrent players

Recently, the survival crafting game Palworld achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the second most concurrently played game on Steam, with a record-breaking 1,864,421 players online simultaneously. This impressive figure surpasses the previous record held by Counter-Strike 2, which peaked at 1,818,773 players. However, Palworld still trails behind PUBG: Battlegrounds, which has the top spot with an unprecedented peak of 3,257,248 concurrent players.

Despite being on the market for less than a week, the creature collection and survival title has already sold over six million copies. The game’s developer, Pocketpair, reported that the peak number of concurrent players across all platforms recently reached 1.853,216, indicating that the total might soon exceed two million. If not throughout the week, the coming weekend will probably be huge for the game.

Palworld is currently available for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S and can be accessed through Game Pass. Although it has been well-received on Steam, the game has faced criticism on Xbox and the Microsoft Store, primarily due to bugs and other technical issues. Pocketpair has addressed these concerns, attributing the problems to discrepancies between different game versions and the extended duration of the certification process.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
