On PC, Babylon’s Fall seems to be struggling to retain a player base despite its release only a few weeks ago (the PlayStation version is also out, but there are no comparable player numbers to track).
Just a few weeks ago, we reported that SteamCharts – a site that tracks the performance of games on Steam – revealed that in mid-April, worldwide PC gamers fell below 10 for the first time. As of this week, the number of concurrent PC gamers has fallen below 100 for the first time in almost a year (thanks, VGC). Just 1166 people have ever played at its highest point.
The Square Enix/Platinum Games partnership was met with mixed reviews upon release, and it also failed to pique the curiosity of gamers. Two weeks after the game’s release, Square published a poll aimed at improving the experience for “everyone” and convincing fans that season 2’s content was “practically complete,” despite the game’s rocky start.
Platinum Games further claims that despite Babylon’s Fall’s less than great debut, there are “no intentions” to pull down production.
For those who haven’t yet had the chance to play Babylon’s Fall but are still interested, a demo is presently available for both PC and PlayStation. If you opt to purchase Babylon’s Fall after your free trial, all of your progress will be saved.
