The long-awaited Dead Island 2 finally arrived last week and despite being stuck in development hell for all these years, it appears to be a fun and complete game. It officially launched globally on Friday, April 21, and after just three days it has sold over one-million copies.

Publisher Deep Silver and developer Dambuster Studios shared a few interesting stats on Dead Island 2’s launch. Over 11-million hours have been played collectively, with player deaths totaling over 28 million. The zombies are faring much worse however, with 45 million sliced in half and 756-million zombie limbs hacked off. In total, 1.1-billion zombies have been slain in the game’s first 72 hours.

While we haven’t had a chance to check out Dead Island 2 just yet, we’re hoping it’s a lot better than our experience with Dying Light 2.
