More than 27 million people play multiplayer online battle arena game League of Legends on a daily basis, developer Riot Games announced today.

According to Riot, that number is more than double its last figure, announced in October 2012, of 12 million. Approximately 67 million players log time on a monthly basis.

The developer added that its peak concurrent players has also increased from its March 2013 figure of 5 million to 7.5 million.

League of Legends kicked off season four of its Championship series earlier this month. Last year's competition brought in more than 32 million unique viewers, with more than 8 million concurrent viewers during the finals.
