Dark Souls 3 is currently the most popular non-Valve game on Steam, beating even ARK

Dark Souls 3

Dark Souls 3 currently has the third biggest player count on Steam, beaten only by Valve’s own Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2.

A few of the games in our list of PC’s best RPGs don’t have a patch on the Dark Souls series.

At the time of writing, Dark Souls 3 has 115,119 current players and has hit a119,193 peak.

To put it into perspective, Football Manager 2016 is next with 55,834 players, followed by Team Fortress 2 with 46,093, and ARK: Survival Evolved with 40,012.

So Dark Souls 3 is in the lead by more than double its nearest competitor. FromSoftware’s business account probably isn’t hollow.
