The free-to-play online shooter THE FINALS from Swedish Embark Studios, after a short, only one-month open beta, unexpectedly went live on Steam and gathered more than 200 thousand players online on the first day.
The authors of THE FINALS were inspired by The Hunger Games and Gladiator movies, so the game is a battle royale for 48 players with cash prizes that takes place in huge arenas. The game features dynamic levels that can be destroyed and used as weapons.
According to SteamDB, THE FINALS reached 200 thousand online players on the day of its release. On Sunday, December 10, 2023, the number of players reached 242 thousand.
