Resident Evil Village had a really good launch on PC, breaking the barrier of 100,000 simultaneous players on the platform, thus setting a new record for the series.
Capcom's title reached 101,726 simultaneous players on its opening day, last Friday, according to SteamDB . That makes it the highest peak reached by any Resident Evil at its launch on PC. Who held the record so far was Resident Evil 2 Remake, with 74,227 players , and a little further behind Resident Evil 3 Remake, with 60,293.
SteamDB is showing Village as one of the top 15 games being played right now, only beaten out by unsurprising performers like Rust, Rainbow Six Siege, and Grand Theft Auto 5. It's unsurprising to see Village performing so well with the likes of Lady Dimitrescu proving that we've all probably been in a pandemic for a little too long.
