Blizzard Entertainment have reported that their latest World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth is its fastest-selling expansion ever. Selling though a whopping 3.4 million units in just its first day, on 14th August, it beats the previous WoW record-holder Legion, which sold a paltry 3.3 million units on its opening day.
That truly is an impressive amount and it makes Battle for Azeroth one of the fastest-selling PC games of all time, proving beyond doubt that World of Warcraft shows no sign of slowing down just yet.
Also in its press release, Blizzard also shared some upcoming details around Battle of Azeroth, see the blurb below for details:
As Azeroth’s defenders continue to explore new regions in search of allies and resources, preparations are being made for the next great confrontation in the ongoing war:
- In the coming weeks, players will be able to charge into Battle for Azeroth’s first Warfront, Stromgarde—a 20-player co-op battle for control of a key strategic stronghold in the Arathi Highlands.
- On September 4, the gates will open to Battle for Azeroth’s first raid—Uldir, an ancient titan facility housing horrific Old God experiments gone awry.
- Also on September 4, the expansion’s first PvP season and first Mythic Keystone dungeon season will commence. The Mythic Keystone dungeon will feature a unique “seasonal affix”—Infested—that introduces new challenges based on the corrupted denizens dwelling in the Uldir raid.
- Beyond that, additional updates are in the works that will provide even more content for players on an ongoing basis, including the ability to recruit the Kul Tiran humans and Zandalari trolls as playable Allied Races. More information on future updates will be shared at a later date.
