In the overall list, Spider-Man Remastered’s PC port stands at the third spot with 66,436 concurrent players when it launched on Steam in August 2022. Horizon Zero Dawn’s decent 56,557 concurrent player peak bows at fourth place while The Last of Us Part 1 remake ended up at the fifth spot with its PC port from last year peaking at 36,496 users at the same time.

Helldivers 2 is one of the few games published by Sony that was released on the same day for both a PlayStation console and PC. The title serves as a sequel to 2015’s Helldivers which came out on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, and PS Vita. Just like its predecessor, the shooter features multiplayer up to four people with players having the ability to pick Strategems.

So far, the game’s reception on Steam has been mixed because of bug issues and crashes due to the title’s popular release. Arrowhead Studios has already released a patch to fix these problems with more updates on the way. In addition, the developers have also promised free content for the title and other DLCs, confirming their commitment to the project.
