The Steam global ranking of game sales reports that New World is currently the best-selling game on Steam, even beating FIFA 22.
Precisely, New World manages to get both the first and the second position in the ranking of best selling games globally: the distinction is probably given by the fact that a Deluxe Edition is also available for an extra € 10. FIFA 22 reappears in 10th place, as it too has a special version at a higher price.
This ranking does not clearly indicate the precise number of copies sold, but we can get an idea of the success of New World through the ranking of most played games of the moment. At the time of writing, New World is in third place with 218,000 concurrent players – Steam also reports that today’s peak was 228,163 players. Right now, only CS: GO and Dota 2 manage to beat the Amazon Games game.
New World outperforms PUBG: Battlegrounds, Apex Legends, Naraka: Bladepoint, Team Fortress 2, GTA 5, Wallpaper Engine and Destiny 2. PUBG peaked at 337,765 players throughout the day, so it’s credible that New World will slide into fourth place soon . In any case, this is a solid start, which follows a beta phase that had already achieved some success.
Furthermore, today an update has been published, which solves various problems: here are the details.
