Horizon Zero Dawn Players Have Died Over 95 Million Times in Three Weeks

In his latest weekly stats update, Horizon Zero Dawn Game Director Mathijs de Jonge revealed that players have died over 95 million times in three weeks – and roughly five million of those are from Thunderjaws:

In previous weeks, de Jonge showed that approximately 1.7 million Stormbirds were killed after two weeks, and around 20 million Turkeys will killed after one week:

If you live in North America and unlock the Platinum Trophy in Horizon Zero Dawn, Sony will send you this PlayStation 4 theme:


According to players, you’ll receive a code for the theme shortly after unlocking the Platinum. If you haven’t received a code, make sure the Communication Preferences setting on your PS4 is turned on (it’s under Account Management > Account Information).

Asked about the theme on Twitter, de Jonge said, “You should get an email from PlayStation I think. [As far as I know] we don’t have control over this as devs.”

Although the Platinum theme doesn’t appear to be available to European gamers, PlayStation Plus members in Europe can grab a free Horizon theme from the PlayStation Store.

Horizon Zero Dawn has sold over 2.6 million copies, and an expansion to the story is in the works.
