The current period of February and March is definitely rich in releases, perhaps even a little too much, at the risk of sending many titles under the radar. And we could have predicted it, but Babylon’s Fall seems to be one of those victims of this overflow of releases, since the first figures given by SteamDB are anything but reassuring for the game service of Square Enix and PlatinumGames .
An announced fall?
After peaking at 650 simultaneous players last night, the title has only just exceeded 1,000 Steam active people on the game at the time of writing these lines.
The title has been available since yesterday , and even for a few days for those who have purchased a deluxe pack of the game. Giving the right to early access, while the Steam ratings are hardly laudatory for the moment. The price of the game is often singled out (the title is sold at full price, €69.99), even though it is a service game which is entitled to many microtransactions.
The period also explains this lack of enthusiasm, since even without counting the other games of the competitors. Square Enix released three games almost in the same week , with this one,
Triangle Strategy and Chocobo GP . If the latter obviously do not target the same audience, we can question the publisher’s strategy of releasing all its pawns at the same time. Knowing that Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin arrives on March 17. No doubt to inflate the numbers a little before the end of the fiscal year on March 31.
Babylon’s Fall is available now on PC, PS4 and PS5. Our test will be available soon, but be sure to check out our latest preview.
