League of Legends Introducing Enhanced Co-Op vs AI Bots And They're Coming To Dominion

League of Legends from Riot Games has overcome Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft to become the most played PC game in the world, according to new data from DFC Intelligence in conjunction with XFire. The information was gathered with usage data from more than 21 million Xfire members, and only Xfire members, between July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. It should be noted however that many PC Gamers don't even have Xfire, a free gaming profile and instant messaging program, installed, so the figures below probably aren't entirely accurate for a worldwide measure, but they're still interesting to look at.

The list states that League of Legends players logged almost 1.3 billion hours of gameplay, while World of Warcraft gamers logged 600 million hours (not including Asia, where a large percent of their playerbase is located).

“The fact that online games such as League of Legends eclipsed more than a billion hours of online game time in a year is simply incredible and a testament to the fundamental shift currently sweeping through the games industry," said David Cole, CEO of DFC Intelligence. "By comparison, Bungie recently announced that the Halo franchise surpassed two billion hours of online play, but that’s over a period of seven years.”

After the break you can find the top 10 most played PC games from July 2011 through June 2012.

What do you think of the fact that WoW has finally been dethroned? Did you think it League of Legends would become the Kingslayer? Let us know in the comments.
