PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has broken another Steam record, and this time it might stick. The battle royale shooter just surpassed Valve's Dota 2 to claim the all-time record for concurrent players. 1.34 million gamers fighting for survival at the same time, surpassing the previous record of 1.29 million set by Dota 2. That's not bad for a game that was only released in Early Access form in March, although it still pales in comparison to the concurrent player counts League of Legends enjoys, according to its developer.
