Warframe: Fortuna hits 132,000 concurrent players

The launch of the Fortuna update has seen players swarm Warframe. The free-to-play shooter was jam packed over the weekend as new and returning players headed to Venus, hitting a new peak concurrent player count of almost 132,000. 

Githyp and Steamcharts both show that Warframe reached 131,722 concurrent players as the weekend kicked off, compared to Sacrifice’s 129,000 a few months ago. These are just the numbers for Steam and don't include players using the Warframe launcher or playing on consoles.

Players were just a wee bit ravenous for the update, with a whopping 40,000 people watching game director Steve Sinclair as he streamed the final push to get the update ready for release. That’s a lot of people just watching a guy at work.
