Total War: Warhammer 3 player numbers went up tenfold after Immortal Empires released

The Immortal Empires megacampaign for Total War: Warhammer 3 was long-awaited, thanks to the popularity of its predecessor, the Mortal Empires campaign for Total War: Warhammer 2, and to Warhammer 3’s default Realm of Chaos campaign being a bit underwhelming on the second playthrough. Since Immortal Empires came out in beta, Warhammer 3’s player count on Steam has shot up like a Doom Diver.

Warhammer 3’s peak concurrent player count (opens in new tab) on Steam was 166,754 when it launched on February 17. That quickly dropped, and for the last three months it’s been hovering between 8,000 and 12,000 players. With the beta release of Immortal Empires on August 23 it zoomed back up, hitting 119,166 that day. It’s remained high since then, and today reached 103,952, putting it at #11 on Steam’s list of top games by current player count (opens in new tab) just behind Rust.
