If you're a fan of the Fallout series, you'll be excited to hear that Fallout 76 has once again broken its all-time player concurrent count record on Steam. This news comes just one week after the game achieved this milestone for the first time. The recent success of Amazon's Fallout show has undoubtedly contributed to the surge in players returning to the wasteland.

SteamDB shows Fallout 76 reached an impressive milestone with 64,083 gamers playing concurrently on Steam this past Saturday. This figure shatters the previous record set only a week earlier, with just under 40,000 players online at the same time.

Originally released on Bethesda's launcher, Fallout 76 made its debut on Steam in 2020, two years after its initial launch. The game is also part of Xbox Game Pass for PC, which means the actual player count is likely even higher than what is reported on Steam.

Despite its rocky start, Fallout 76 has been continuously updated over the years, introducing fan-favorite locations and new content. The addition of locations like The Pitt has kept players engaged and coming back for more.

As if the game's success wasn't enough, Amazon's Fallout TV show has also been making waves, with the company confirming a second season. The show's popularity has translated into a significant increase in Fallout game sales, with four titles making it into the European top 10 last week.
