The reboot of Tomb Raider has been in stores for a couple weeks now. In that short period of time, players have carved a path of destruction through the Dragon's Triangle. Square Enix has released statistics that details all of the violence they've inflicted.
PETA probably won't be happy with the game. Players killed over 5 million deer - which is impressive because you only need to kill one in the campaign. You don't need to kill any crabs in the game but you all managed to kill 1.4 million of them.
Not all of the targets were undeserving, though. Over 147 million hostiles were slain by players with arrows. About 20 million of the enemies were killed by enemies.
While combat is a huge focus of Tomb Raider, the developers also threw in a bunch of optional tombs that challenge players' puzzle and platforming skills. Roughly 3.5 million tombs have been plundered by the community.
Square Enix hasn't announced the sales for Tomb Raider yet. However, these statistics suggest that the game's done very well. It wouldn't be a surprise, considering the strong reviews.
To keep everyone playing Tomb Raider, developer Crystal Dynamics is releasing downloadable content. The first DLC pack will be released this week. The DLC is a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360.
