Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, a rather picky Mecha genre game released in August by FromSoft is also included in this level. Cyberpunk 2077, with the launch of the Phantom Liberty DLC, also had a spectacular return with more than 270,000 players at the same time.


Gold Tier is followed by Silver Tier, games with more than 80,000 peak players. Prominent names at this level include Remnant 2, an extremely high-quality souls-like shooting game released in July this year. In addition, older names such as Elden Ring, Valheim and Civilization 6 also had excellent performances.

Finally, the Bronze Tier (over 40,000 peak players) also has some established games like Stardew Valley and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, released in 2023, also made its mark on this level.

Besides the list above, Steam also revealed its best-selling games of 2023. Names that appear on the most played list are once again present, such as Baldur’s Gate 3 or Hogwarts Legacy.


The fact that Baldur’s Gate 3 won the “Game of the Year” award and also appeared on both the best-selling and most-played lists is not a coincidence. Steam’s reveals not only celebrate the games that shaped the year, but also provide a comprehensive look at the 2023 gaming landscape.
