Eternal Doom has had a solid launch weekend on Steam.
Soon after launching on Friday, Eternal doom Ranked in the top ten among Steam concurrent players. The numbers keep rising and eventually stabilize 104,891 Concurrent players on the weekend.
This is more than double the 2016 peak of Doom 44271. Considering that unlike Doom 2016, Doom Eternal is not an exclusive Steam work, which is also impressive. In fact, the only way to get a Steam copy of Doom Eternal is to buy it directly from the store.
All keys sold at third-party online retailers are Bethesda's own launchers. In other words, the actual number of concurrency is much higher, but Bethesda's launcher does not provide any public tracking in the same way, so we may never be sure. Bethesda even accidentally released a version that was not protected by Denuvo, which didn't seem to matter much.
Regardless, it's a good thing for Eternal, and for the most part, it's a great game. If you're one of the many people who currently love it, be sure to read our "Ecstasy" and "Hell" collection guides.
