Elden Ring Steam player count

Unfortunately, when it comes to player counts, there is no way of finding out exactly how many people are playing a game across all platforms at any given time. However, we can use Steam Charts, which gives accurate figures for Steam players.

According to Steam Charts, as of June 7, 2022, Elden Ring has an average of 77,048 players on PC. Although, the player count peaked at 952,523 in March.

Of course, these numbers only reveal the players that are currently enjoying the game on PC and don’t shed any light on the console player base. FromSoftware are yet to reveal exact sales of Elden Ring, but there is some data available that can help us.
