2020 was an incredible year for Steam, although the main reason for the large numbers was unfortunate. And is that the Covid-19 pandemic led many people to confinement in which the use of the PC for fun was also a psychological escape for many problems.
After the first peek of the pandemic, the numbers on Valve’s platform reached a new high, for slightly more pleasant reasons such as the festive Christmas and New Year period that normally makes many people have more free time to play their favorite titles. But now Steam hit an all-time high again for the third consecutive month.
The best start to the year for Steam
Sundays, in particular, are the best day for Steam, between 15 and 19 in Spain, more precisely. It was in this time slot that a few moments ago, 26 million users connected to the platform were registered, hundreds of thousands more than those seen in the previous largest record in January of this year.
Already in December, the numbers showed the imposing mark of 25 million simultaneous users, a number that the platform surpassed in January and just surpassed again in February and a figure that many think it could surpass again in the coming weeks, which It would already make 2021 the best start to the year in the history of Gabe Newell’s platform.
The emergence of this new wave of players seems to have as its epicenter the launch of two very popular games in China such as Dyson Sphere and Tale of Immortal, which injects Steam with millions of new players from that country alone, something that shows that the demographic landscape of the video game scene begins to change as we had already anticipated when Steam confirmed the launch of its service in the Asian country.
Get ready! Spider-Man Game Series Coming to PC
Hello, PC gamers! The Spider-Man game has reportedly become one of the best-selling games on the market. It sold more than 33 million copies globally on May 15, 2022.
The latest news is that Marvel’s Spider-Man series, previously exclusive to the PlayStation console, will finally be brought to PC.
As quoted from the PlayStation blog, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will launch on PC on August 12, 2022, while Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will launch on PC in Fall 2022.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC will include the entire main story and follow-up narrative in Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps DLC, which features three-story chapters accompanying Peter Parker’s journey along with additional missions and challenges for players to discover.
“I’d like to take a moment and on behalf of Insomniac, to say a huge thank you to those of you who are reading this post and have purchased and played the PlayStation console versions of Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4) and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS4, PS5),” said Ryan Schneider, head of the strategy and relations at the Insomniac Games studio, as quoted by Indozone, Sunday (5/6/2022).
Meanwhile, the PC versions of the two Spider-Man games are being worked on by Nixxes, a PC game port developer studio acquired by Sony last year.
Nixxes founder and senior development director Jurjen Katsman said he would have more details to share about the two Marvel Spider-Man PC games as they approach their respective launches.
“I’m very excited about our collaboration with Insomniac on Marvel’s Spider-Man series; the shared support provided between our team and their dedication to quality above all else is inspiring. This has allowed our team to leverage our technical expertise and focus on creating the PC experience. Best to take advantage of all the exciting possibilities that the PC platform offers,” he said.
“Our team has always been big fans of Insomniac’s work, and partnering with them to bring Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales to PC in the best way we can is something we’re very passionate about,” continued Nixxes.
Now that God of War is officially coming to PC, what other Sony games would you like to see?
Sony has already placed part of its cards on the table. That strategy that Microsoft started and that many fans of the blue company made fun of now comes to Playstation. With an important nuance, to date, we do not see launch games that are released simultaneously.
The latest to be announced is the newest instalment of God of War, which arrives on January 14 on Steam with improved graphics and new technologies to better process images such as NVIDIA DLSS and Reflex. God of War for PC will be released for 44.99 euros.
God of War, Hoziron Zero Dawn, Days Gone, and other Sony games on PC
Sony’s strategy is positive; it can take the game to another market once profitable on Playstation consoles. Not better, not worse, different from Microsoft. The Japanese don’t have a Game Pass to keep, so, logically, Microsoft wants to make their PC subscription attractive by bringing their releases.
However, the question is for the user who has a PC sufficiently developed to move these games. What platform exclusive games would you like to see on Steam or the Epic Games Store? The Japanese franchise list is extensive so that you can buy almost anything there.
I leave the comments for you to comment and tell us which ones you would like. If you want my opinion, Ghost of Tsushima, Ratchet & Clank, and Spiderman are games that I would like to try.
