    Soaring Popularity on Steam: Ghost of Tsushima

    According to SteamDB, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut reached a whopping 77,000 concurrent players at its peak. This impressive feat dethrones God of War, which previously held the record with 73,500 concurrent players.

    It’s worth noting that purely online games like Helldivers 2 have reached much higher peaks (458,000), but Ghost of Tsushima’s triumph lies in its single-player focus. While the Director’s Cut offers a complimentary Legends co-op mode, the core experience revolves around the captivating single-player campaign.

    User reviews for the PC port have been overwhelmingly positive, with over 88% of the initial 9,000 reviews praising the game. This acclaim is likely due in part to the exceptional porting work by Nixxes Software.

    The PC version boasts cutting-edge features like NVIDIA DLSS Super Resolution, DLSS Frame Generation, DLAA, NVIDIA Reflex, AMD FSR Frame Generation, and Intel XeSS. These options provide players with a wide range of graphical customization and performance optimization tools.

    For those unfamiliar with Ghost of Tsushima, it’s an open-world action-adventure developed by Sucker Punch Productions. Set in feudal Japan, the game follows Jin Sakai, a lone samurai on a quest to liberate Tsushima Island from a Mongol invasion.

    In my review, I awarded Ghost of Tsushima a stellar 8.5/10, commending its “excellent rendition of feudal Japan, along with its well-written characters and story.” It wasn’t just critically acclaimed; the game also achieved remarkable commercial success, selling nearly 10 million copies within two years of its console release.

    The game’s popularity has even extended beyond the gaming world, with director Chad Stahelski (John Wick) attached to helm a live-action film adaptation.
