Baldur’s Gate 3 Steam Player Record

While Baldur’s Gate 3's achievement is seriously impressive, it didn't quite snatch the crown. The all-time peak concurrent player count record is still being held by none other than Hogwarts Legacy, the blockbuster that dropped earlier this year. Back in February, that magical game attracted a whopping 879,308 players all playing at once. Yep, that's a lot of wizards and witches.

Baldur's Gate 3 is taking its sweet time just like Hogwarts Legacy. Many games reach their peak player counts within a few days of release. It's not rushing the process. Instead, it's been building up a steady stream of players over a bit more time. Throughout the past week, it's actually broken its own concurrent player record a few times.

You might think that the games with the highest concurrent player count on Steam are all about multiplayer mayhem, and you're not entirely wrong. PUBG: Battlegrounds, for instance, attracted a whopping 3,257,248 players all at once during its peak. But hold up – the realm of single-player titles is no pushover. The crown there goes to Cyberpunk 2077, which managed to gather an impressive 1,054,388 players simultaneously. Baldur’s Gate 3 might not be at the very top, but it's definitely carving out its own place in the Hall of Fame.

Here's something that'll warm your gamer heart – Baldur’s Gate 3 isn't just a hit with the players, but it's also getting a lot of love from the critics. Ever heard of Metacritic? Yeah, that place where game ratings really count. Well, Baldur’s Gate 3 has soared past The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and landed the title of the highest-rated game of 2023 on Metacritic. That's a serious achievement.

Baldur's Gate 3's desire to break Hogwarts Legacy's Steam player record. It's the story of gamers, influencers, and a touching game. While it might not have cracked the top 8 all-time records, it's a clear winner in terms of slow and steady growth and critical acclaim.
