Ghost of Tsushima smashes God of War and Spider-Man to be Sony's biggest PC launch

By FileTrekker a month ago, last updated a month ago

Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut has smashed all-time records for PlayStation titles released on the PC platform, becoming Sony's biggest single-player title to date, at least based on concurrent player count.

The game initially launched in 2020 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive but recently made its PC debut with the release of the Director's Cut on Steam. Since the launch on May 16th, according to the folks over at SteamDB, the game has managed to rack up a concurrent player count of 75,000. It's further fuel to suggest that PlayStation's multiplatform approach is gaining significant traction, and has opened up PlayStation to a wider audience, boosting the popularity of its exclusive titles. 

The number is a new record for PlayStation's single-player titles on PC, with God of War achieving a peak of 73,000 concurrent players, while Marvel's Spider-Man reached 66,000. Horizon: Zero Dawn saw 56,000 players at its peak, and its sequel, Horizon: Forbidden West, reached 40,000 concurrent players.

In the multiplayer realm, however, Helldivers 2 naturally lightyears ahead, with a remarkable peak of 458,000 concurrent players. This exceptional figure is primarily attributed to its availability on launch day, unlike the other games, which were ported to PC after their initial console releases. Helldivers 2's immediate accessibility likely increased engagement, underscoring the potential benefits of synchronizing game releases across multiple platforms. 

The good news is that PlayStation's expanding presence in the PC market reflects a successful adaptation to evolving gaming trends and a commitment to reaching a broader audience.

The Director's Cut includes new exclusive armour sets, a developer commentary, and a new Legends co-op mode, and you can grab it on Steam right now.
