Pirated Version of Wolfenstein: The New Order So Big That Some Pirates Opt to Buy it on Steam

According to this TorrentFreak story, the PC version of Wolfenstein: The New Order is so large that some people pirating the game on torrents have opted instead to buy it on Steam. While the information is anecdotal, it could help explain – in part – how the newest action game from Bethesda managed to unseat DayZ from the Steam top-selling games charts for the week of May 18-24.

According to the report, some torrent users have balked at the massive download for the game, which weighs in at 43.65 GB. Some have said that spending several days to download the game is not worth it and that they would simply buy the game via Steam. But not everyone is willing to pay for the game: according to TorrentFreak's figures, the stolen copy of the game has been downloaded over 100,000 times.
