Monster Hunter: World is This Year's Biggest Game Launch on Steam

Monster Hunter: World has cemented itself as this year's biggest Steam launch (at least hitherto). The popular game which has been one of the most popular console launches of this generation has again done it on the PC platform, where it achieved an astounding 239,779 concurrent players a few hours after launch, more than any Japanese game ever achieved - and this comes at a time that's after the Dark Souls phenomenon. This year's previous biggest launch was Kingdom Come: Deliverance, which pulled in nearly 96,000 players - a far cry from Monster Hunter: World's achievement.

Here's our performance analysis and port impressions article.

Surprising because a lot of TPU members said they weren't going to get this 'terrible port'. I would get this if I didn't plan on playing Dota 2 a bit before The International.

I don't think the PC world realizes how huge Monster Hunter is as a franchise. Like the entirety of the Japanese population seems to play it or something. Heh.

It's Capcom. Not US or China... if that's what you mean.

From personal exp, keep it up. Sure, there's a lotof cool games out there, but RL is better than PC gaming.

The lootboxes are way better.

That awkward moment when you realise that for the past months your brain has managed to mix up Hunt: Showdown and Monster Hunter: World :slap:
