Path of Exile Steam stats skyrocket overnight, shattering records from cuipeng's blog

In the wake of Path of Exile Crucible, the latest chapter inside the action RPG game‘s ongoing saga, the PoE Steam player count is virtually ten times what it really was before Crucible’s launch.

There’s a great love about POE Currency Crucible; there’s the newest Crystalline Geodes, overhauls to Atlas Trees, Breach Stones, and Abyssal Depths, far more. You don’t use it from me, though; the game’s current player count speaks for itself.


On April 7, the PC release date for Crucible, Path of Exile’s Steam stats increased tenfold (or nine-and-a-half-fold), surging from 23,324 at 9 am PST / 12 pm EST / 5 pm BST / 6 pm CEST to 211,637 when Crucible launched. While the hype has died down a bit, the stats spend time at 96,189 in the time writing, over 4 times April’s base peak.

The game also hit a fresh record for concurrent players, dwarfing their original stats of 50,000 with the impressive 321,180 concurrents. As I said before, despite the presence of the hype dying away the stats will still be up on the first record by 46,189 – great at all.

Path of Exile has struggled to essentially compete with Diablo in the past – in fact, Blizzard’s saga of strife would be the father of the ARPG genre. With the Diablo 4 release date in the near future and the beta over and done with, Grinding Gear timed Crucible’s release perfectly. It scratches that Diablo 4 itch post-beta weekend, and could be the fresh new life PoE needed.

Those Diablo 4 beta withdrawals have hit pretty hard, huh? I can relate, but equally Grinding Gear has knocked it out of the park with Crucible, so its success could be the perfect combination of good timing and awesome new content.
