When Blizzard launched Battle For Azeroth, which is an expansion for the popular online video game World Of Warcraft last week, fans of the game no matter if they were part of the horde or the alliance turned up to support the launch of the new title. So many people purchased the game on August 14 that 3.4 million copies of Battle For Azeroth were sold worldwide. This number is now the new day one sales record for a launch in the franchise.
Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment said “Battle for Azeroth is a definitive chapter in the Horde and Alliance conflict at the heart of Warcraft, and it’s been thrilling to see players representing their factions in record numbers and embarking on their war campaigns—not to mention joining in ourselves. But the launch is just the beginning of this conflict. More epic content is coming to World of Warcraft in the weeks ahead, and we can’t wait for players to experience the full story as it unfolds over the course of the expansion.”
Blizzard says that there’s still more to come for players who are currently playing Battle For Azeroth. Here are the top four things to look forward to in the Battle For Azeroth expansion:
- 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 5 September, 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 5 September, 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.
