The popular platform for PC games Steam has achieved a new record in its consumer base. According to Steam Database, last Saturday, 18.5 million people were online at the same time. Of these, over 7.1 million have played simultaneously a title from the Steam catalog. In this way, the Valve platform continues to be the leading online PC game site.

This is more than 3 million users compare to the same day from the previous year, when Steam again achieved a record number of simultaneous logging. In 2017, there were 14.3 million users who used the platform at the same time. However, the annual growth rate was smaller – by about 2 million, compare to 2016 there were 12.3 million players.

Somewhat better results in the new year are due to the current game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), which is available for PCs only through Steam. Early in 2017, it was available for Early Access through the online platform, and the full version was officially released in December.

PUBG’s current peak record is 3,138,533, which just so happened to also occur on January 6. Other top games contributing to the peak include old standbys like Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Grand Theft Auto V, as well as old titles that’ve gotten new lives like Rainbow Six Siege and Warframe.
