August was a month of breaking records for Steam, some bad, in Overwatch 2‘s case, and some good, in Baldur’s Gate 3‘s case.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is now the third most played Steam game for the month, beating titles like Apex Legends, PUBG: Battlegrounds, and Naraka: Bladepoint in total hours played.
The game is still sitting behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and DOTA 2 but considering how this is a story-heavy RPG, rather than an e-sports-focused title, it’s still quite impressive.
If you are curious about Baldur’s Gate 3, take a look at our review for the game.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is available now on Windows PC (via Steam). The PS5 and Xbox Series X/S releases are coming at a later date.
