Valheim has been hitting new heights on an almost daily basis, just recently passing 3 million copies sold. Well, now the game has another record to tout; reaching 500,000+ concurrent players on Steam.
According to Steam tracking website Steam Charts, Valheim hit a 502,387 concurrent players peak on February 21, 2021. That puts Valheim in quite an exclusive club with only four other games exceeding 500k concurrent players: DOTA 2, CS:GO, PUBG, Cyberpunk 2077. It’s worth noting this only takes PC Steam data into account.
It’s pretty awesome to see a game in early access from a small development team do so well.
