With the Plains of Eidolon expansion, Warframe hit an all-time peak of 121,377 concurrent players on Steam. As such, Warframe now features the second highest peak CCU for a free-to-play game currently on Steam.

This numbers is nearly double its previous record of 69,526 CCU peak in March 2017 with Octavia’s Anthem expansion. Warframe Plains of Eidolon also rocketed to the top five of SteamCharts, racking up 40,145,054 hours played (as of this writing) by enthusiastic Tenno.

Plains of Eidolon is described as Warframe’s most ambitious and sweeping update of 2017, offering players a massive new landscape to explore, a 10-story high boss to combat, new weapons, items and armor to upgrade and customize, a unique Warframe to play, all while introducing a significant, original chapter in the game’s ever-expanding lore.
