Amazon Games’ Lost Ark becomes the 2nd most played game on Steam after just 24 hours

Amazon Games’ Lost Ark has passed 1 million concurrent players after just 24 hours, becoming the second most played game in Steam history by concurrent counts. The new MMO launched yesterday in the West, after Amazon Games collaborated with Smilegate RPG to localize and translate Lost Ark and make it available in English.

Lost Ark is so popular right now that it has experienced server issues and there’s a queue just to start playing. SteamDB lists concurrent players of Lost Ark at 1,325,305, passing Counter Strikes :GO’s record of 1,308,963 players and Dota 2’s of 1,295,114.

It still has a long way to go to beat PUBG’s all-time peak of 3,257,248 players. Lost Ark is a second huge hit for Amazon Games, after New World set a concurrent record of 913,634 players four months ago.

Lost Ark was originally released in 2019 in South Korea, and has millions of active players in South Korea, Russia, and Japan. It’s free-to-play and has also quickly risen to the top of Twitch, overtaking the popular Just Chatting category.
