Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel It arrived this week as a free game based on Konami’s popular card game. At first glance, it seemed like it had everything to be a success, but Konami’s failure in its latest free-to-play had some players taking things very cautiously.

What happens is that, in its few days on the market, Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel it has already reached a peak of 262,333 connected users. With the above, the card game has had a larger number of simultaneously connected players than titles like Rust, Grand Theft Auto V, New World Y Football Manager 2022.
As if that were not enough, the daily peak of Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel it was close to that of Apex Legends (265,202 connected players). In addition, at the time of writing this note, it is the fourth game with the most connected players on Steam, being only surpassed by giants such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 Y PUBG: Battlegrounds.
