Warhaven Celebrates Steam Next Fest Success

The eight-day Steam Next Fest demo for NEXON’s free-to-play PVP medieval fantasy Warhaven was a great success.

The Steam Next Fest demo saw more than 100,000 active players step onto the battlefields of Herarth. The title secured the #1 position for Daily Active Demo Players, #2 for Highest Concurrent Users, and #3 for Top Demos by Unique Players.

By the end of Steam Next Fest, Warhaven placed 7th in Most Wishlisted Upcoming Games, seeing the largest increase in Steam followers, with over 3,700 new users during the event.

According to Warhaven’s Game Director Eun-seok Lee:

“We can’t thank our fans enough for the support over the last few weeks. Warhaven was ranked outside of the top 100 on the Steam Wishlist in May, but quickly rose into the top 60 after June’s game showcases and the Steam Next Fest demo, which was well-received by the gamers and influencers who played it. We’re excited to see what the future holds for the Early Access launch as we continue to make improvements and enhancements to the game.”Eun-seok Lee
