By   /   Sep 20, 2014

Well, we knew that Destiny was going to be a big one but exactly how big was still a question. Looks like Bungie decided to let us in on that with the help of statistics that have been collected for the first week since the game’s release and it includes some heavy figures for Destiny Crucible.

According to the developer’s official website, fans have played for much, much longer than what they anticipated. Here’s a rundown on the figures:

100 Million Hours Played – Enough to watch the entirety of The Lord of the Rings trilogy 8,797,653 times. And yes, we are talking about the Special Extended Editions. 137 Million Activities Played – The equivalent of 535,156 regular seasons of the NFL. The Average Gameplay Session lasts about 3 hours on weekdays. On weekends it turns out you have some extra time to kill, raising the average up to more than 4 hours per session. 1 Billion Players “Served” in the Crucible (player deaths).

While explaining the number of Destiny Crucible matches they said that a single crucible match has been considered as equivalent to a single activity regardless of the number of unique players in it.
