We already knew that highly-anticipated D&D role-player Baldur's Gate 3 was doing well on Steam – it had racked up an impressive player peak of more than 472,000 people in its first day on sale – but it's now one of Steam's most-successful games ever.
According to SteamDB, as of this morning (Sunday 6th August) Baldur's Gate 3 has broken into Steam's top ten most played games. It has amassed a staggering 712,281 concurrent players, becoming Steam's ninth biggest game ever in terms of concurrent player counts.
That means Baldur's Gate 3 has now eclipsed the concurrent Steam player peaks for games like Valheim, Goose Goose Duck, and Respawn's Apex Legends.
Baldur's Gate 3 is also currently the second-most played game of the last 24 hours, behind only Steam stalwart CS:GO.
