Spider-Man With Good Launch on PC, but Worse Than God of War

Although the debut of the PC version of Marvel's Spider-Man on Steam can be considered very successful, the friendly neighborhood web-slinger failed to beat the platform's previous ranking leader, God of War.

Praised by gamers and acclaimed by critics, the hit from Sony consoles has also arrived on PC, two years after original release. First reviews of Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered on Metacritic indicate that we are dealing with a very good production (the rating of industry experts fluctuates at 87/100). This is also perfectly reflected in the numbers on Valve's platform.

According to the data from SteamDB, players were very eager to play Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered. At the hottest moment, the title boasted an impressive 64,893 active players, while at the time of writing this news, 31,519 people are playing.

Interestingly, however, this is only the second most popular PlayStation title made available on PC. The first place belongs to God of War. The 2018 game, which also received its PC version a few months ago, could count on 73,529 players at the peak, and currently the number is 1,645 users.

Of course, it should be remembered that Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is still a fresh game on Steam, so we can almost be sure that it will bump up its stats a bit in the coming days. This means that Kratos and his son Atreus can slowly start looking behind them.

Finally, let's remind that PC owners are in for another Marvel superhero game this year. In November, among other things, the well-known PlayStation game Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales will hit Steam. We are extremely curious to see how this title will fare against other popular games on the platform.

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
