Atomic Heart is not only enjoying great success but is also breaking records on Xbox as the most popular single-player game after Hogwarts Legacy.
This is a remarkable accomplishment for the post-Soviet shooter developed by Mundfish, which is receiving highly positive feedback from users rather than critics.
While official data is yet to be released, some reports suggest that Atomic Heart has even surpassed Hogwarts Legacy as the best launch of 2023 on Xbox.
According to metrics and numbers expert Benji-Sales, the game’s popularity on the Microsoft platform is unquestionable.
The fact that Atomic Heart has been part of Xbox Game Pass since day one has contributed to its success, making it currently the second most popular game on the cloud and third in both the console and PC games rankings.
Our recent experience with Atomic Heart on PC was highly impressive. The game was optimized well and could run at high frame rates even with the most advanced graphics, despite the lack of ray tracing at launch.

• Cloud – #2
• Console – #3
• PC – #3

In the game, players assume the role of an officer who witnesses the launch of a new neural network at Structure 3826 in an alternate 1955.
However, things go awry, and all the androids begin attacking humans, leading to a furious battle for control of the garrison. With its engaging plot and impressive performance, Atomic Heart is definitely a game worth experiencing.
