War never changes, but concurrent player counts do for video games. For Fallout 76, the numbers are going up, as the action-RPG set a new all-time record over the weekend on Steam.

On X (formerly known as Twitter), user CHAD: A Fallout 76 Podcast spotted that Fallout 76 had reached a new milestone, with 39,455 people playing the online RPG at the same time on Steam on Sunday, April 14, per SteamDB.

Fallout 76 originally came out in open beta in October 2018 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
