The highly-anticipated Resident Evil VII: Biohazard debuted last week on consoles and PC to largely positive reception (including our own review of the game, which earned a 9.0 score), and based on the stat’s from the game’s companion stat tracking site, the game’s new soft reboot is also receiving some good numbers during its debut week.

Over on ResidentEvil.net, a stat-tracking site that players can opt into when starting Resident Evil VII, the site shows some encouraging numbers for the game’s debut week by tracking the stats of players that opted in to sharing their game data. Overall, those numbers show 931,232 players worldwide (as of this writing) across all platforms, while also revealing that 88,289 players (9.48% of the total reported playerbase) are playing the game with PlayStation VR on PS4.

Along with the total player numbers and VR stats, the site also shows other fun statistics such as a total combined playtime of over 800 years, over 18 million km of distance traveled, over 32 million player kills, and much more for those who love numbers.

The big thing to note is that these numbers come from players that opted in to the ResidentEvil.net service when starting the game, so while they aren’t completely accurate when accounting for players that may not have opted in (and with no official sales data yet provided by Capcom or elsewhere), they still provide a pretty solid (and encouraging) set of numbers for the game’s debut within just about a week since its launch.

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
