Total War: Warhammer is approaching its third year, but proving that orc invasions and massive fantasy battles never go out of style, it’s currently enjoying a surge of popularity that’s seen more players attempting to conquer the world than the previous highest player count, all the way back at its 2017 launch. 

Spotted by PCGamesN, the players started marching in on May 21, where the number climbed to nearly 85,000, the highest its ever been by over 10,000. Normally you’d see these jumps during a free weekend or huge sale, but this time it was an update, specifically aimed at the Greenskin factions.
