To celebrate the first anniversary of FromSoftware’s Elden Ring, Bandai Namco has released a new infographic, sharing information from millions of players. It revealed that 5.9 billion attempts were made on the game’s bosses, with Malenia, Blade of Miquella, unsurprisingly on top with 329 million attempts.
Margit, the Fell Omen, and the Limgrave Tree Sentinel are second and third, respectively. Over nine billion deaths occurred in-game, with a whopping 69 percent coming from enemies and NPCs. Of course, we shouldn’t forget the 14 percent dying of falling.
There have been over one billion summons, 88 percent of those in co-op. The top spells cast were Rock Sling, Crystal Torrent, Glintstone Pebble, Greatblade Phalanx and Rotten Breath. Blessing of the Erdtree, Bestial Sling, Golden Vow, The Flame of Frenzy and Bestial Vitality were the most acquired Incantations.
Elden Ring is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC. It’s won numerous Game of the Year awards and crossed 20 million in digital sales and worldwide shipments. An expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, is confirmed to be in development.
