With more than 3.4 billion video views in its first 60 days, Elden Ring quickly rose to become one of the most popular video game launches on YouTube.
3.4 billion people watched Elden Ring in the first two months after it was released, surpassing GTA 5’s 1.9 billion viewers, according to data.
This comparison is unjust because YouTube has expanded since the release of Grand Theft Auto in 2013, while Red Dead Redemption 2 (2018), released much more recently, reached 1.4 billion, making Elden Ring’s success very evident.
YouTube Gaming may not consider this the biggest gaming launch in history, but it’s obvious that FromSoftware‘s open-world masterwork has raised the bar significantly for future YouTube gaming.
Let Me Solo Her, who repeatedly defeated the game’s most difficult boss and earned a real-life sword, was also recognized by the development team.
Let Me Solo Her is possibly Elden Ring’s most well-known hero. Let Me Solo Her-related videos on YouTube Gaming have amassed almost 25 million views.
Elden Ring’s status as a genuine gaming phenomenon is further evidenced by all this. It was one of the games that sold more copies in a short period than any other in the recent US and European history had one of the highest concurrent player counts on Steam, and had some of the finest reviews ever.
10/10 review described it as a masterpiece and said it “is undoubtedly one of the best open-world games I’ve ever played. Elden Ring is a game that we’ll be looking back on as one that advanced a genre, just as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild before it.”
All of this serves to further underline Elden Ring’s status as a genuine gaming phenomenon. It immediately rose to the top of the list of recent games with the quickest sales in the US and Europe, the most concurrent players on Steam, and the most players ever.
