Specifically, Elden Ring reached 764,835 concurrent players within its first 24 hours on PC< as shown on SteamDB. There's been significant hype surrounding FromSoftware's latest Soulslike entry, which expands upon that premise through an open world RPG.

Elden Ring Quickly Becomes 7th Most-Played Steam Game at Launch

We're not expecting Elden Ring to go beyond this record, given how the launch period is usually the most active time for any new game. Considering this doesn't account for other platforms, the true number of concurrent players is likely far higher.

After years of waiting, Elden Ring is available now on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. We’ll keep you informed with any future updates that affect the game but if you're in the UK/Ireland, you might be interested in this recent competition.
