If you have been on Steam lately, you might have heard about Kingdom Come Deliverance. This new open-world RPG has managed to sell more than 300,000 units on Steam. That is pretty amazing considering that the game had not received a lot of positive reviews from critics. It seems that the Steam community does not care too much about reviews, as the game has ended up hitting some major gold on Steam. Read on to learn more about the Kingdom Come Deliverance sales and concurrent player count on Steam.
Kingdom Come Deliverance Sells Over 300,000 Units on Steam
It is pretty amazing that this open-world action RPG game has sold more than 300,000 units on Steam alone. We do not have the numbers for Xbox One or PS4, but we can imagine the numbers were solid on those platforms as well. A lot of Steam players had even reported issues with Kingdom Come Deliverance during launch.
Most of those were lower-range issues, such as issues with the gameplay or controls. Even though the game struggled with the critics, it has managed to become a pretty big success on Steam. About 500,000 copies of the game have sold worldwide, which is also an impressive feat. The graphics and gameplay of the game are pretty good, and the issues will be improved over time to make it even better.
The developer, Warhorse, revealed some of the details about how well this game is actually doing. Over 100,000 units have been sold retail. During an interview with Czech TV, Warhorse revealed more details about the game itself. The developer also said that the development team is aiming for more than 1 million units to be sold worldwide. The game is about half way there at this point, so it should not be too hard to do. It is likely we will see the game hit 1 million units sold within the next month or two, and that would really be some exciting news for the developer.
Kingdom Come Deliverance Sees Success After Struggles
The game definitely struggled when it came to the reviews from the critics. It is good to see that these reviews and struggles have not impacted the overall sales of the game. It managed to do very well on Steam, even being a top seller on the gaming platform the day it launched. From there, it managed to get into the top-five most played games on Steam. Even better news, the concurrent player count reached over 75,000. For a new game on Steam with some issues, this is very good news for the game developers. It also suggests that the game is doing way better than anticipated and way better than most people would have thought leading up to the launch.
Kingdom Come Deliverance is one of those games that might not really appeal to a whole lot of people within the gaming community. It is more of a niche unique game, so seeing all of these figures is pretty amazing. Considering there are quite a few amazing games on Steam with super high concurrent player counts, getting to 75,000 is a feat. This game also has a pretty cool storyline as well, which is something that makes it stand out.
It is all about avenging the deaths of your parents. You have to kill enemies along the way, and the action and adventure will leave you immersed in getting revenge. The open-world action and adventure elements of this game are pretty fun, regardless of what the critic reviews have stated. Have you tried out this game on Steam yet?
