‘Ghost of Tsushima’ Topples ‘God of War’ As PlayStation’s Biggest Single-Player Steam Launch

The reign of God of War on Steam has come to an end. Less than a week after its arrival on PC, Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima is now PlayStation’s biggest single-player title on the platform — and second only to multiplayer juggernaut Helldivers 2.

According to Valve, the feudal Japan-set title peaked at 77,154 concurrent players on Steam, above the latter’s all-time high of 73,529. Arrowhead’s co-op shooter continues to top the chart with a 458,709 concurrent player count, becoming the fastest-selling PlayStation game to date after selling 12 million copies across PS5 and Steam in just 12 weeks.

Still, it’s still an impressive feat for Ghost of Tsushima, considering that it’s unavailable in countries and territories with no PlayStation Network (PSN). This comes after Sony introduced a a PSN account-linking requirement for online multiplayer and the PlayStation overlay on PC, resulting in a “beta” label for the game’s cross-play functionality. In turn, its co-op online multiplayer mode, Legends, won’t have automatic cross-play.

Following the release of the PC version, Sucker Punch took to X/Twitter to thank Nixxes Software for “their outstanding work” on the port. Your technical expertise has been invaluable in making our first-ever PC release a reality,” said the studio. “We couldn’t possibly have asked for a better partner.”

Other notable successful Sony titles on PC include Marvel’s Spider-Man, The Last of Us Part 1, and Horizon Zero Dawn. God of War: Ragnarok will reportedly join the list next, with no word still on a Bloodborne PC port.
