Steam With Historic Result; All-time Record Achieved

The past weekend will go down in the history of Steam. At one point there were more than 30 million users logged into the service.

Steam is once again inspiring awe. Yesterday, at the hottest moment of the day, there were 30,032,005 users logged into the service at the same time. This is new all-time activity record, and the first time in the history of Steam it crossed the "magic barrier" of 30 million users logged in at once.

The service regularly attracts more and more players in front of the monitors. The biggest increase has been recorded since 2020 - this was contributed by the pandemic, which caused people to spend more time at home. The last record high was recorded in March this year - it was 29,986,681 players logged in simultaneously.

Yesterday, the most played title was Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with a score of 1.05 million players at the same time. Up to 750,000 players spent their time in Dota 2, followed closely by Playerunknown's Battlegrounds with a score of 440 thousand players. A nice result of 320 thousand players was also boasted by Apex Legends. All the games mentioned are F2P titles, attracting players with their free-to-play nature and low system requirements. The rest of the games on the list of the most popular items achieved results of less than 200,000 concurrent players.

Interestingly enough, usually the record-breaking results of Steam went hand in hand with ongoing discounts on the service. This weekend, apart from minor sales from individual publishers, there were no big sales. The nearest big sale on the occasion of Halloween will start tomorrow.
