It looks like Warframe’s digital convention, TennoCon 2020, broke records on Steam for concurrent users. Here’s how it breaks down.
The game set an all-time Steam record of 154,246 concurrent users. The previous record for Warframe was in November 2018 which saw 131,766 concurrent users. And according to the accompanying press release, while debuting its new Heart of Deimos open world expansion, the stream amassed a peak record concurrent viewership across Twitch and Steam of 469,868, gathering a combined 2.44 million hours watched on Twitch.
Also shown off during TennoCon was some pretty glorious concept art, which you can check out in our gallery here. Like virtually everyone else in this industry, Digital Extremes had to change their plans for an in-person event in favor of a virtual one.
And in some good news, while TennoCon is a community event designed to connect Warframe players with the development team, a portion of the proceeds are given to local community organizations. Digital Extremes partnered with Autism Ontario London and Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex (ASLM) to donate $100,000 CAD to each for a total donation of $200,000.
