Dying Light player count increased by 330% amid the sale spree

May 12, 2024 by No Comments


Dying Light (2015) has been hitting Steam amid monumental sales that have brought the game’s price tag down to single-digit dollars. This open-world zombie title, considered one of the best post-apocalyptic games ever, wowed audiences nearly a decade ago with its high-octane parkour mechanics and grizzly combat engine.

As Techland slashed the price to celebrate Zombie Awareness Month, tens of thousands of people jumped into the game, increasing the number of players by about 330%.


Rising of the Undead

Player data is readily available on Steam, Maximum number of players is 39,812 Recorded in last twenty four hours. Last month, that peak number of players stood at around 9,049. In contrast, 2022’s Dying Light 2: Stay Human, released to mixed reception, had a twenty-four-hour peak player count of around 7,000.

Dying Light’s all-time high on Steam is 45,770, so this particular sale almost reached a new record.

For reference, Dying Light scored anywhere close to these numbers on Steam when Dying Light 2 was released in February 2022. Isn’t it funny how it works?

Dying Light is still worth playing almost a decade after its release. It has an immersive, fun story that will keep you occupied for thirty to fifty hours, and there’s an excellent option for multiplayer if you want to slay the undead with a friend. It’s one of the defining games of the last generation and one of the best zombie games ever made, so it’s worth paying a couple of dollars to get it.
