On January 15, 2021 – last Friday – Grinding Gear Games released “Echoes of the Atlas”, the latest expansion for the action role-playing game Path of Exile. This add-on not only provided players with new features and content, but also set a new record – at least on Steam.
As can be seen from the statistics, as of January 15, 2021, just over 157,000 players were simultaneously in Path of Exile (buy now ) active. Exactly there were even 157,103 users who fought their way through the action RPG at the same time. This is not only a considerable number in itself, but also represents a new record in this category. Since the release in 2013, never before have so many players been active at the same time. The previous record (133,357) came from March 9, 2020 and is almost a year ago. The value has been falling again since last Friday, but remains at a relatively high level for the time being.

The release of the expansion “Echoes of the Atlas” should have a large part in this. In addition, many players are currently logging into the multiplayer area because of the new Challenge League. This grants the fans some new options for the gaming experience and should also be a trigger for the current hype. It should also be noted that the Steam numbers only make up part of the total player base: There is an alternative standalone client for Path of Exile, which comes directly from Grinding Gear Games. Players who log in via this logically do not appear in the number mentioned above.
