Dark Souls 2 nets over 4 million deaths in its first week

Promotional website offers worldwide stats for new RPG installment

Dark Souls 2 only released this week, but players worldwide have already died over 4 million times.

That's according to a promotional website offering a variety of realtime stats for the game. While it looks like the PS3 stats are a little inaccurate at present, the Xbox 360 page reveals that more than 1,500 people have already finished the notoriously brutal RPG.


Most fascinating are the statistics for how people are dying. Fall deaths are higher than expected, leading me to suspect that people are fatally tempted by the beautiful Majula ocean. You can't swim in it, guys.

Check out the website here, and while you're at it, read the first installment in my Dark Souls 2 diaries.
