Baldur’s Gate 3 is a massive hit as peak player count passes 400,000

There’s no doubt Baldur’s Gate 3 is a runaway success on PC, attracting more players than the Resident Evil 4 remake in just 24 hours.

There might not be any official sales figures yet but it’s pretty obvious that Baldur’s Gate 3 is already a major hit for Larian Studios.

Its launch was so big that it broke Steam , meaning plenty of people were left waiting longer than they would have liked to start playing, but that only highlights just how popular the game already is.

In less than 24 hours, Baldur’s Gate 3 has reached a peak player count of over 400,000, making it one of the biggest PC hits of the year so far.

At the time of writing, Baldur’s Gate 3’s exact peak player count (as in how many were playing the game at once) is 472,136.

That dwarfs the likes of the Resident Evil 4 remake and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor , which peaked at 168,191 and 67,855 players, respectively.

In terms of player counts, this makes it the second biggest Steam launch of the year, beaten only by Hogwarts Legacy – which boasts a peak player count of 879,308.

Baldur’s Gate III has reached 400k+ concurrent players, becoming the 2nd Biggest Steam Launch of 2023 by players, only behind Hogwarts Legacy 2023 Top 3 1. Hogwarts Legacy – 879,308 2. Baldur’s Gate III – 418,991+ 3. Sons of The Forest – 414,257 A truly spectacular performance — Benji-Sales (@BenjiSales) August 3, 2023

Baldur’s Gate 3 is sitting pretty at the very top of Steam’s best seller chart though, beating out Remnant 2 (which only launched last week) and perennial Steam favourite Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

While Larian Studios is no doubt thrilled with the reception, the game can only get more popular once its PlayStation 5 port launches next month. Unfortunately, the Xbox version may not be out until next year , due to technical issues with getting it working on Xbox Series S.

In the meantime, creative director Swen Vincke has left a message for fans over on the Baldur’s Gate 3 website .

‘It’s hard to express how much love went into creating Baldur’s Gate 3. For over six years, more than 400 of us poured our hearts and souls into making this, helped by over 2.5 million Early Access players who spent countless hours giving us feedback,’ Vincke writes.

‘The result is a beautiful, rich universe where you can escape from your daily worries, experience adventure and wonder, and have many many cool and exciting encounters. It’s a place where your identity and choices matter, where surprise lies around every corner, and where your agency is truly rewarded.

‘I’m super proud of what our team accomplished and I hope you will have an incredible amount of fun exploring what we prepared for you.’
