Watching gamers all around the world play the game you've been working hard on for many years is always going to be a nerve-racking experience. Thanks to a huge network of servers, genius programmers, and expert metric analysts, we have the tools needed to paint a picture of how people are playing our games.
On Tomb Raider's launch day we were on tenterhooks; staring at a giant monitor as the first few people jumped into the game and the live statistics appeared. And boy, was it like opening the floodgates! The stream of data came rushing in, and while the experts in our office were keeping an eye out for any problems, I instead enjoyed tracking some of the more interesting statistics.
Did you know that in your collective mission to survive and quash Lara's hunger - but of course also to suck up that all-important XP - the community has killed a collective 5,294,879 deer? Sorry Bambi...
FeeFee and his friends didn't fare much better either, with the community collectively killing a total of 1,417,750 crabs - snatching you an achievement in the process.
But killing deer and eating crab cakes isn't what makes Lara a survivor. Together you've taken everything that's thrown at you, escaping the clutches of death, delivering Lara to safety so she can fight another day. Lara has had 13,742,891 close calls and you've outwitted your enemies by dodging them 11,067,764 times.
No arrow in the knee jokes here - you're incredibly skilful with the bow! You've risked it all to save your loved ones, dispatching 147,675,058 enemies with the bow (20,601,083 of those with fire arrows). And not being one to be waste resources you've looted and salvaged a total of 356,988,302 arrows from fallen enemies.
But what makes Lara more than just a survivor to us? She's a Tomb Raider reborn, and together you've embarked on an adventure that's revealed 3,570,956 tombs between you all!
Keep on playing, and we’ll keep on tracking. We’ll have more updates from Lara’s world in due course.
