The PC port of Days Gone may be better than Horizon Zero Dawn, but it had many more players.
Sony’s second major exclusivity for the PlayStation coming to the PC was not exactly as successful as the first. Days gone, which was launched on a PC a week ago, mapped List of best-selling Steam products repeatedly, but eventually attracted a smaller audience compared to the Horizon Zero Dawn.
Days Gone is the highest number of concurrent players on Steam to date 27 450, which he achieved over the weekend after a nice gradual start. That’s less than half of last year’s Horizon Zero Dawn debut, which he made 56 557 at its peak.
Both games were, of course, launched on Steam and the Epic Games Store, so while the comparison is worth it, there’s a chance Days Gone will improve outside of Steam. Steam reviews for these two games are mostly positive since this writing, although Horizon Zero Dawn has significantly more reviews because it has been available for more than nine months.
This is especially surprising because the Days Gone computer port is better optimized and richer in features compared to the Horizon Zero Dawn, which was running in a terrible state and gave Guerrilla Games developers a better part of the year to get in better shape.
With that being said, it should also be borne in mind that Days Gone was much worse critically received when it was launched on the PS4, and this sentiment affected sales there, which ultimately caused Sony to allegedly kill plans to continue. It would be logical that this negative income should also affect the PC sales of this game.
When more of these games arrive, we get a clearer picture of PC gamers’ interest in Sony’s exclusive products. I imagine that something like the Bloodborne PC port would be much better than both of these games.
