Hello there readers of LambdaGeneration! My name is Vyacheslav ‘MrFreemanBBQ‘ Konchits. I’m Russian, and I am a new writer at LambdaGeneration. I came here from the Russian Social Network ‘VKontakte’ a.k.a. VK where I am the lead writer and founder of the Steam VK public page. I will be covering mainly Steam related news but also general gaming industry news that is related to Valve.
Anyway, today Dota 2, one of the most popular Valve games, has just set a new record for the number of concurrent players, namely — 326,072 people. This is a huge milestone for both the game and for Valve themselves! Here is a graph showing overtime playerbase statistics for both the Dota 2 beta and the previous record-holder, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
