Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is already Steam’s biggest launch of 2020 so far, and the number of concurrent players keeps on rising. Since the team posted a Tweet about hitting 145,000 concurrent users, the number is already at 178,000 at the time of writing this.
Though it comes as no surprise, as Mount & Blade fans have been waiting nearly eight years for this release. The game was originally scheduled to release tomorrow, but the team moved their release date up a day given all that’s happening in the world at the moment.
They also provided a 10% discount for launch day, and an additional 10% off if you own any of their other titles.
Doom Eternal also launched earlier this month, which previously held the title for the biggest launch of 2020. Doom Eternal peaked at nearly 85,000 users, which is half of what we’re seeing at the moment for M&B II: Bannerlord.
