Yesterday, Thursday, the loot shooter Outriders for the PC and consoles came on the market. After the great euphoria surrounding the previously released demo, the full version also seems to be floating on a great wave of success. After all, the action game was able to set a record shortly after it started.

As can be seen from the statistics of SteamDB, shortly after the launch, more than 119,000 players cavorted simultaneously in the Steam version of Outriders (buy now 58,99 € ). Exactly there were 119,953 players who rushed into the fight at the same time. This is not only a remarkable number in itself, but also represents a new record. In terms of player peak, it was the best ever Square Enix launch on Steam. The runner-up game on this list is the action role-playing game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided with a peak of 52,485 simultaneously active players at the launch in 2016. In addition, Outriders was even able to overtake long-running hits like Team Fortress 2 and Ark: Survival Evolved for a short time and move into the top 10 on Steam.

Incidentally, you will find the official launch trailer for Outriders below this message. It doesn’t have any real gameplay scenes to offer, but it still provides a foretaste of the action-packed gameplay. You will also get to see some of the huge creatures to take on.
