Elden Ring Players Have Died More Than 9 Billion Times

The game's first anniversary is being marked with some eye-opening stats.


It's hard to believe that Elden Ring's launch--and the fervor that came with it--was a year ago, but Bandai Namco is celebrating the first anniversary of the game with an infographic revealing some of the first year's most impressive statistics.

Elden Ring players have died more than 9 billion times according to Bandai Namco's records, with 69% of those deaths coming from enemies or NPC. 15% of deaths were due to status effects, 14% from falling, and only 2% of player deaths were caused by other players.

Players have also attempted nearly six billion boss battles in the first year, with Malenia, Blade of Miquella receiving the most attempts at 329 million. Margit The Fell Omen ranks second with 281 million, followed by Limgrave Tree Sentinel at 277 million, Radagon of the Golden Order at 148 million, and Starscourge Radahn at 139 million.

Over one billion summons have been called by Elden Ring players, with 88 percent of those being co-op focused as opposed to 12 percent invasion summons. Bandai Namco also ranked the top five casted spells, with Rock Sling being the most popular, as well as the top five incantations used, with Blessing Of The Erdtree topping the list.

Elden Ring is available now for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. The first DLC, Shadow Of The Erdtree, was recently confirmed by From Software, though no release date has been announced.
