Dying happens a lot in Dark Souls II. How often specifically? Millions of times since the game’s release yesterday.

As of this writing, there have been roughly 1.3 million deaths on the 360 version, and almost 3 million deaths on the PS3 version. Most of the deaths are from enemies, with fall deaths a close second and traps in third. Phantom invasions do not even come close.
