Elder Scrolls Online player count April 2023

The Elder Scrolls Online is getting a new expansion later this year, but how popular is the MMO in 2023? Here’s ESO’s player count for April 2023.

The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) is ZeniMax and Bethesda’s long-running MMORPG set in the world of Tamriel, having first launched back in 2014. It allows players to explore regions from past Elder Scrolls titles, such as Morrowind and Skyrim, and those that have never been seen before. For many, it’s the perfect way to bridge the long gap between The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls 6, which is still extremely far off.

The MMORPG receives regular content updates and expansions, adding in new quests, characters, locations and more for players to explore. The next expansion, Necrom, is set to launch on PC on June 5, and then June 20 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

If you’ve never picked up ESO before, or are thinking of trying out a new MMO, you might be wondering just how vibrant the game’s player base is.

Is ESO worth playing in 2023? April 2023 player count

According to ActivePlayer.io, in the last 30 days The Elder Scrolls Online has has a monthly active player count of over 5,000,00 and around 150,000 to 200,000 daily active players. In the last seven days, ESO reached a concurrent player peak of 24,152, as per SteamCharts.com.

ESO is available to play across PC, via Steam, macOS, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Player count numbers usually only take into account the PC player base, so the actual number of active players could be much higher.

So, is the game worth playing in 2023? I’d say yes. With The Elder Scrolls 6 still far off in the distant future, ESO offers fans a huge amount of content across the world of Tamriel. Plenty of quests, lore, armor and weapons to collect, as well as the option for housing and collecting/crafting furniture. Players also do not need an active ESO Plus subscription to play after purchasing the base game, like other MMOs.

If you’re looking for a great balance between value for money and content, then ESO is one of the best MMO choices out there.
