Ghost of Tsushima Slashes Into Steam’s Top Ranks as PlayStation’s Fourth Biggest Launch

Ghost of Tsushima has just marked its territory as PlayStation’s fourth biggest Steam launch in terms of concurrent players. Yup, you heard that right. According to the trusty SteamDB, this samurai epic has pulled in a peak of 59,244 concurrent players since its launch last Thursday. That’s no small feat!

Now, let’s put this into perspective. Only three other Sony-published titles have managed to top this number, and two of them are from Sony’s internal studios. Leading the charge is Helldivers 2, developed by Arrowhead, a third-party studio. This game has smashed records with a whopping 458,709 concurrent players. Next up, we’ve got the mighty God of War, pulling in 73,529, followed closely by Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered with 66,436. Ghost of Tsushima, with its 59,244 players, is hot on their heels and could very well climb higher as we head into the weekend.

But wait, there’s more. This samurai adventure has already outperformed some heavy hitters like Horizon Zero Dawn, Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition, and even The Last of Us Part I. That’s right, it’s slashing through the competition like a katana through butter.

Here’s a quick rundown of the top 10 peak concurrent player counts for PlayStation games on Steam, just to give you a clearer picture:

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.
