Fallout Phenomenon: Prime Video Series Drives Game Activity and Popularity


Amazon Prime’s Fallout series has turned out to be one of the best series to come out so far in 2024, and is already rubbing shoulders with some of the best video game adaptations ever made. The series is being a phenomenon, even among people who have not even played the franchise, and as has happened on other occasions, this popularity has had a direct consequence: the Fallout phenomenon.

As happened in the past with The Witcher or Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, fans who have seen or have already finished the show have wanted to continue delving into the Fallout universe, and this has resulted in the number of active players of each of the games in the series has skyrocketed to maximums that we had not seen for years.

The Fallout phenomenon translates into an incredible increase in the number of players.

In the image we can see just above these lines (via @xbox_media) we can see how the number of players of the different games in the Fallout franchise has grown considerably since the Amazon Prime series was released. Already in the first hours since the series arrived early on the platform, we could see how the number of Fallout 76 players grew considerably, thanks to both the adaptation and the free copy we could get through Prime Gaming.

Taking a look at this weekend’s figures, we can see how the Fallout phenomenon has translated into a fairly considerable increase in simultaneous players in several of its titles. For example, Fallout 3 had been counting on a number of players of less than 500. However, after the premiere of the series, the game has reached the maximum peak of 6,695 players, which implies a growth of about 1,500%.

A very similar thing has happened with the other installments of the saga. While Fallout 4 had just over 16,000 players at its maximum before the series premiere, the new peak reached 83,441 simultaneous players. On the other hand, Fallout: New Vegas used to average close to 5,000 players, and after the series has reached a peak of 19,437 concurrent players. Therefore, there is no doubt that the series has served to revitalize a saga for which a fifth installment has long been in demand.
