You could see it coming. Lost Ark was a long-awaited video game for all lovers of the MMO genre, and even though it’s free, it only increased the hype even more before its release in Europe. After a few days of early access, the game is finally available to everyone, and is already breaking several historical records.
The MMORPG from Smilegate and Amazon had already impressed us a few days ago by becoming the sixth video game with the most simultaneous players in the entire Steam history. And after its release, Lost Ark climbed another spot andis currently in the top 5 titles with the highest peak concurrent users.
This data can be consulted on the Steam statistics page, and precisely thanks to this tool we can obtain another most surprising achievement. As I write this, Lost Ark has a total of 1,001,189 concurrent players; a figure that has only been surpassed by Cyberpunk 2077, Dota 2, CS:GO and PUBG.
To finish, I would like to point out that my colleague Ramón is quite addicted to Lost Ark, and in the article that I have left you just above he explains in great detail why it is the best MMORPG of recent years. I’m not a PC gamer nor do these types of “hour-consuming” games attract my attention, but I have to admit that from what I’ve seen in gameplays, it seems to be very fun and rewarding.
