Thanks to the Battlefield 1 Early Enlister Deluxe Edition, there’s already hundreds of thousands of players across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, unofficial tracking site P-Stats shows.

According to BF1Stats.com, Battlefield 1 is currently sitting at 93,300 players on PS4, 101,300 on Xbox One, and 51,00 on PC. In the past 24 hours, the peak is 94,200 on PS4, 124,700 on Xbox One, and 61,200 on PC. When Battlefield 1 officially launches on October 21, expect the numbers to see a huge boost.

In our review of Battlefield 1, we said, “Though the “1” in its name may officially stand for the Great War, it could also represent the rebirth of a franchise that took a bit of a beating with Battlefield 4, went down an awkward path with Hardline, before finally rising as the Battlefield title that simply all shooter fans must buy.”
