The lights are on
Since Tomb Raider’s release on March 5, Square Enix has been keeping a close eye on its players, taking note of in-game player statistics from enemies killed to the number of deer hunted.
According to Square, 5,294,879 deer have been killed and 1,417,750 crabs have been captured. These were taken from the mission on the island to help Lara sustain her health by fulfilling her hunger with hunting animals.
Hunting isn’t all that Lara had to conquer to survive. You had 13,742,891 close calls and dodged enemies 11,067,764 times.
Lara faced and dispatched 147,675,058 enemies with the bow and salvaged and looted 356,988,302 arrows from conquered enemies. Of those enemies killed with arrows, 20,601,083 were killed by fire arrows.
Altogether, the players have raided 3,570,956 tombs, making Lara more than just a tomb raider, but making her a survivor.
Square Enix promises to keep tracking and delivering these fascinating statistics if you, the players, promise to keep tomb raiding.
lara got crabs lol sorry it was there
The game is pretty dang good!
Nice! I'm always a huge fan of seeing these statistical trends. It helps to figure out how players play, etc...
After I beat it the first time I jumped to multiplayer to get the achievements out of the way before the community dies, not big on achievements but for Tomb Raider games I make an exception.
Loved the game but finished in about a week. Collectables couldnt hold my interest. Multiplayer is poor as you all know...but hey Bioshock comes out soon !
This is a game where I'm hoping to see some DLC. I want to raid a lot more tombs.
More tombs, no multiplayer.
My personal favorite was the machine gun. The sounds it makes, and the feel of using it. I can't seem to find anything in the 3rd person shooter genre that is similar to the machine gun from Tomb Raider, and i've been looking. Max Payne looks like it could offer something similar, or possibly Defiance. I'll be interested to see what kind of score Defiance gets when it comes out on the 2nd. That could be my next pickup.
Those are interesting number but I found out that when you finish the game the enemies doesnt respawn with the same amount of enemies if you try to work on the trophies/achievements. I had to try and find them. Those numbers could of been bigger. Please fix that
Awesome game but way too short. Was expecting a lot more optional tombs as well. What was there? Like, five? Thought there would be more like ten.
I really liked the cover mechanic. After playing Mass Effect so much, not being locked into cover felt amazing.
I suggest taking the reduced damage upgrade last. The game is more challenging and fun with reduced health, and you can use that point on a more worthwhile upgrade.
Excited to see what the future holds for the series.
Golad to see this game was a success. Need to beat Uncharted 3 first though
god this game is amazing,i can't wait for more
I've taken out more deer than that with my car.
Shoot, that's a lotta Croft danger right there.
This game is frickin' Amazing!!! We are early in the year but I think it is safe to say that this game will be in strong contention for Game of the Year.
So cool that they are keeping track of stats. I agree with SRUSSE10 though, they should give us death stats as well. Wooden spike through the head, metal pole up under the chin, tree branch through the torso....etc.
Just picked this game up today. I am about to become a statistic. Yippee ki yay
wow, this article reads like ad copy.
