Valheim’s success on steam
Let us put Valhim’s success in context. Many highly popular games like Dota 2, CS: GO, PUBG & Cyberpunk 2077 have taken months on Steam, if not for years, to gain the kind of player base that Valheim has.
This helped Dota 2 reach almost 2 years, and CS: GO 3+ years to reach 500K concurrent players, while Valheim achieved it within a month.
PUBG is the only game that even comes close to this record. It hit 500K concurrent players on Steam for 3+ months at launch.
Neither Fall Friends or Between Us is able to hit 500K concurrent players on Steam. However, this only takes into account the PC player base.
