Rise of the Angry Earth launched yesterday and minus some server queues it seems like it is a resounding success. Some charts to go with it!
First we have active players on Steam DB showing a peak concurrent player count of 55,000+ players. This is short of what we saw with Brimstone Sands, but still a solid uptick in players.
Secondly we have the Steam's Top Sellers with New World and Rise of the Angry Earth at spot 2 and 3 respectively with only Counter Strike 2 ahead of it at 1. This is a good sign of both returning players and new players picking the game up.
Both of these tell a good story for New World and it's first expansion.
