In recent days, we've been reporting on the successful launch of Starfield, Bethesda's latest space adventure that is engaging a multitude of gamers. As expected, the game was downloaded by multiple Game Pass subscribers eager to try it out. Despite this, today's achievement proves even more remarkable.

Data from SteamDB shows that the number of simultaneous Starfield players on Steam today surpassed the all-time record of players concurrently engaged in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The latter had its peak in 2011 with 287,411 players at the same time, while Starfield topped out at an increased 330,723 players today (initial count was 325,520, which was promptly updated).

Considering Steam does not offer Game Pass, it means all these players paid the full price to enjoy Bethesda's latest interstellar quest.
