Naraka: Bladepoint was released back in 2021 for PC, in 2022 for Xbox consoles, and in 2023 for PS5. It has maintained steady popularity and has consistently stayed in the Most played list on Steam (and it’s available on Epic as well).
While the player count goes up and down if you check the month-on-month stats (on Steam Charts), Naraka: Bladepoint stands strong at #5 under Most Played at the time of writing, beating out GTA 5, TF2, Battlefield V, BG3, and Red Dead Redemption 2.
If you look specifically for Battle Royale games, the game is in the top 3, beaten by PUBG: Battlegrounds and Apex Legends.
The game wasn’t free to play since its release. This fast-paced battle royale game crossed the 20 million unique player mark on its second anniversary and switched from paid to free on July 13, 2023. This has clearly proven to be a good decision because, along with new content, features, and consistent updates, this brought a lot of new players to the game boosting the player count to the milestone we see today.
One of the major reasons behind this popularity, aside from the unique and challenging melee-focused gameplay, is that the game looks very stylish and cool. The art style and animations are well-done and so are the detailed character outfits.
