Destiny: The Taken King has become the most downloaded day-one game in PlayStation history, according to Activision.

The expansion was played by more people on launch day than the original Destiny and set a record total players and peak online concurrency.

“Destiny: The Taken King is officially the most downloaded game on day-one in PlayStation history and set a new benchmark for both total Destiny players and peak online concurrency on day-one, so it’s safe to say the Destiny franchise continues to gain momentum,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.

“Along with our talented partners at Bungie, we cannot wait to watch the community continue to grow and tackle the King’s Fall Raid kicking off on Friday.”

Bungie announced during a livestream earlier this month the King’s Fall raid would release on September 18- which is tomorrow.

Destiny: The Taken King was released this week and is available for PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
