Steam has once again broken its concurrent user record.

Once again, Valve's digital distribution platform Steam has set a new record for concurrent users. [...]

It's first worth noting that third-party site SteamDB actually registers the new all-time peak as 29,201,174. How and why there is a discrepancy between it and the official public numbers is unclear, but the data largely still tells the same tale. The number of concurrent users seems to have spiked so high thanks in large part to PUBG: Battlegrounds going free to play and the surprise release of the free-to-play Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel.

Broadly speaking, in terms of what folks are actually playing on Steam at the moment, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive remains on top of the group with 902,702 current players as of writing. Just below, and per usual, is Dota 2 with a 300,000 drop to the aforementioned PUBG: Battlegrounds below that. Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel follows PUBG: Battlegrounds with another significant drop. The typical gang of popular video games follows with Apex Legends, Grand Theft Auto V, Rust, Monster Hunter Rise, Ark: Survival Evolved, and Football Manager 2022 rounding out the current top 10 in order.

The platform passed 29 million users to hit an all-time peak of 29,198,370, according to Steam's public page with such metrics. This isn't even the first time that Steam has managed to set a new concurrent user record this month, but given the circumstances of this weekend specifically, it seems like this one might hold for a bit longer. Valve said adding Steam Deck support to titles that utilize EAC is “a simple process. It's first worth noting that third-party site SteamDB actually registers the new all-time peak as 29,201,174.5 billion and add 4,000 jobs at sites in Lansing and Orion Township. How and why there is a discrepancy between it and the official public numbers is unclear, but the data largely still tells the same tale. With Valve adding BattlEye support through its Proton compatibility layer for Linux late last year, the company said, “this means the two largest anti-cheat services are now easily supported on Proton and Steam Deck. The number of concurrent users seems to have spiked so high thanks in large part to PUBG: Battlegrounds going free to play and the surprise release of the free-to-play Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel.

Broadly speaking, in terms of what folks are actually playing on Steam at the moment, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive remains on top of the group with 902,702 current players as of writing. Of course, it’s one thing for Valve to make it easy for developers to ensure their games run without issue on Steam Deck and a completely separate thing for them to do the necessary work to ensure compatibility. The two companies are expected to split the cost. Just below, and per usual, is Dota 2 with a 300,000 drop to the aforementioned PUBG: Battlegrounds below that. Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel follows PUBG: Battlegrounds with another significant drop. And yet it’s still unclear whether some of the most popular multiplayer games on Steam that utilize BattlEye and EAC, including titles like Rainbow Six Siege and PUBG , will work on day one of Steam Deck’s availability. The typical gang of popular video games follows with Apex Legends, Grand Theft Auto V, Rust, Monster Hunter Rise, Ark: Survival Evolved, and Football Manager 2022 rounding out the current top 10 in order. A significant plant expansion is expected to be completed by 2025. As noted above, the new concurrent user record for Steam is set at 29,198,370 according to Steam's public metrics.

It had been set at 28,230,661 until today, though that number was only reached earlier this month and a previous record was set the weekend before that.
