Total War: Three Kingdoms Has The Biggest Launch On Steam In The Series

The art of war is strong with this iteration of Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

Total War: Three Kingdoms has garnered a player count peak of 191,816 within 24 hours, which is the largest number for a game launch this year. For comparison’s sake:

  • Sekiro‘s player count peak was at 124,334, placing the tough-as-nails game in second place for Steam PC game launch numbers.
  • Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5 peaked at 88,000, while the Resident Evil 2 remake was at 74,000.
  • Total War: Rome II had an all-time peak of 118,240, while Total War: Warhammer was at 111,909. This effectively puts Total War: Three Kingdoms as the de facto leader in the series.

Currently, Total War: Three Kingdoms is on the PC distribution platform’s top five games list. It’s behind Dota 2, PUBG, and CS:GO, but well above Rainbow Six: Siege, GTA5, and Warframe.

Furthermore, it’s also the most pre-ordered game in the series thanks in part to its Chinese players according to a tweet from analyst Daniel Ahmad.
