Personally, I’d rather play Elden Ring than watch it, yet there are presently 761,000 people watching Elden Ring streams as of this writing. Imogen Mellor of PC Gamer hosted our own Elden Ring webcast on twitch.tv/pcgamer earlier today. Without any context, 700k is just a huge figure, but comparing Elden Ring’s streaming numbers to those of other FromSoftware titles is very instructive. In 2017, Dark Souls 3 had a peak viewership of 276,283, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice had a peak viewership of 280,046 just before its release. Elden Ring has more than doubled those numbers, and it’s still not in the hands of all the streamers who want to flaunt it. Currently, Elden Ring has over 700,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch. From SoftwareFor Comparison, All-Time Twitch Peak, this is already a new record. • 700,000+ for Elden Ring • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – 279,037• Dark Souls 3 – 275,893 Prepare for a MONSTER photo to arrive. twitter.com/JFABSo4PZT 24 February 2022 Elden Ring’s early sales figures compare well to those of recent blockbuster releases such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Halo Infinite, and Final Fantasy VII, which all peaked out in the low-to-mid 200,000s. Elden Ring is approaching the audience of CD Projekt’s controversial Cyberpunk 2077, which had a peak viewing of 1,140,960 before it was officially released. It’s just another example of how eagerly Elden Ring has been anticipated. I’m trying to avoid spoilers as much as possible before the game’s release, but I remember surviving on Dark Souls 2 streams back in 2014 when there was an inexcusable one-month delay between console and PC releases, so I understand.
