Monster Hunter World has already set three records on the PC, biggest Steam launch in 2018

Monster Hunter World has just been released on the PC and it has already set three new records on Steam. According to its stats, Capcom’s monster hunting title is the biggest launch for a Japanese title in Steam’s history.

Monster Hunter World currently has more than 240K concurrent players, surpassing Dark Souls 3 which held that record with 129K concurrent players.

Monster Hunter World is also the biggest Steam launch in 2018, surpassing Kingdom Come Deliverance which was the previous biggest launch on Steam in 2018 with 95K concurrent players.

Last but not least, Monster Hunter World is Capcom’s biggest PC launch ever. Guess that the presence of Denuvo was not enough after all to put off those PC gamers that were thirsty for this kind of games.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
