We would have thought: On Steam, an Early Access Game blossomed just an absolute flyer. The medieval role-playing game “Mount & Blade 2 – Bannerlord” has been available in an unfinished preliminary version since March 30, 2020. Despite its lavish price of 49.99 euros, gamers rush for the title in thousands. The rush was so big at times that the steam shop collapsed under demand. In the meantime, the dust has cleared and reveals phenomenal user numbers. Just a few hours after its release, Steam statistics showed that more than 178,000 gamblers were roaming the game’s battlefields at the same time. New record this year!
