Dark Souls II has only been out for a few days (and it's not even available on PC yet) but even so, players have recorded over 4.5 million deaths .

That's…insane.

Publisher Namco has released a death tracker for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the newly released game, and you can see how many times individuals have died, and how they've died.

Of the four and a half million deaths, death at the hands of an enemy tops the list, with 1,342,561. However, it's interesting that so many deaths occurred due to falling; 365,728, to be exact. Traps caused 33,743 deaths and thus far, human players have been responsible for 22,241 deaths. The "Other" category is pretty huge, though: 54,559 deaths registered thanks to mysterious causes, apparently. These numbers will obviously continue to grow as people progress in the game, and newcomers start their adventures.

Then, when the PC iteration comes out on April 25, the numbers will get even higher. And don't forget that Namco can only track deaths if the player is logged in; if they're offline, obviously they can't.  Ever wonder what the real death total is…? In our review , we said the game was hard but very rewarding, and perfect for a certain type of gamer who desires a hefty challenge.

Lol i know. I joined the brotherhood of champions by mistake. Most enemies 2 shot me xD after the second boss I figured I could leave that evil brotherhood by talking to a cat and I now find the game almost easy XD seriously it really makes the game totally unforgiving especially on a first playthrough lol

Doing that is actually useful since it cause enemies to respawn at NG+ levels along with NG+ specific loot so you can continue to farm them.

Sad to say I've had around 30 of those deaths. I really love this game, such an epic improvement over Dark Souls.

you can find out your # of deaths by checking the death counter in offline mode.

I picked up Darks Souls 2 at a Gamestop midnight release, it was more for Titatinfall but there were a few Souls fans picking up there copy to. When I made it to Majula, a round 1:00am central, there were already about 3 thousand deaths.

They should release the # of players in order to get the interesting statistic of avereage # of deaths per player. Just a thought.
