Ghost Ship Games revealed a bunch of interesting details about it in its 2022 year in review Deep Rock Galactic. One of the most interesting details was the number of players the game saw over the course of the year.

The average number of concurrent users, i.e. the average number of people playing the game at any one time, was 11,544 for 2022. The highest number of concurrent players was 46,688 players mining and shooting alien bugs at the same time.

The average number of users playing per day for 2022 was 113,700, compared to about 75,000 in 2021. The average number of players per month was 827,890, a staggering number of people coming together in the name of mining resources.

Deep Rock Galactic: other interesting information

In addition to the impressive player numbers, there were more interesting facts about the game last year. The most important numbers for the developers are the 97% positive rating the game has in Steam reviews and the 5.5 million copies sold across all platforms. Across the board, in sales, number of players and more, the game is growing year on year.

There are also some more fun pieces of information in the 2022 review. For example, the top five causes of death are listed, with no fewer than 52 million deaths from fall damage. Most deaths are caused by enemies, but the third highest cause of player deaths is friendly fire, with over 20 million players knocked out by their teammates. They really should rename that term, friendly fire is very misleading.

To restore some faith in humanity, of the 278 million player deaths in 2022, 226 million were revives. It’s comforting to know that when you play Deep Rock Galactic with friends you have over 80% chance of being revived when you go down.

Another interesting fact is that by 2022, nearly 4 million people have been killed by the supply drop pod. That’s a lesson many need to learn, and hopefully those 4 million people learned it this year. Doesn’t seem too likely to me though.

That’s it for our 2022 breakdown of Deep Rock Galactic player numbers and other interesting facts. For more on the game, check out our Deep Rock Galactic crossplay guide.
