There were quite a few games released in May 2014 with Wolfenstein: The New Order, Tropico 5, The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4, Final Fantasy III, and Watch Dogs debuting on the PC platform. However, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs was the only new title to break into Raptr’s “most-played games on PC” list for May 2014.
With over 22 million users, the gaming social network ranks the game by the total amount of time spent playing each title and comparing it to the entire time spent playing games by all users. As such, according to Raptr, League of Legends was number one with 17.05 percent share. LoL saw a 12 percent increase in week-on-week playtime due to the release of a new Champion, Braum, and the League of Legends Championship Series currently taking place. World of Warcraft was second with 7.74 percent share, Dota 2 was third (7.54 percent), Diablo III in fourth (5.56 percent), and Counter-Strike rounding out the top five games with 3.32 percent.
Meanwhile, some interesting shifts occurred in Raptr’s ranks with The Elder Scrolls Online, ranked eighth with 1.80 percent, seeing a 39 percent drop in playtime hours and a 22 percent decrease in the number of players. Warframe, the multiplayer sci-fi shooter from Digital Extremes, saw a 15 percent decrease in playtime in a month-on-month basis and 11 percent drop in players to end up rank 14.
Dark Souls 2 made it into the top 20 for the first time by climbing up 12 spots to rank 11 with 1.60 percent share. While it has been available digitally since April 24, the retail versions were made available May 2. Watch Dogs, despite having been released at the end of the month on May 27, was able to break into the top 20 most-played PC games at rank 19 with 0.80 percent. However, it remains to be seen whether the recent launch issues will affect its momentum for the month of June.
