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 .
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.
