Blizzard‘s MMORPG had a successful launch with a large player base.
Until August 30, when the expansion arrived, Blizzard registered 3.3 million sales, which hit the level of previous expansions, making Legion one of the best-selling PC games ever. Also, World of Warcraft’s launch-week player concurrency climbed to its highest point since the 2010 launch of the Cataclysm expansion.
Blizzard doesn’t stop here, though: they are working on the 7.1 patch, called Return to Karazhan, featuring a reimagined version of one of World of Warcraft‘s most popular raids. Players will explore a sprawling five-player Mythic dungeon, face familiar foes from Karazhan’s past, and encounter plenty of surprises and twists along the way. The update also features a new set of quests unfolding over multiple weeks in the fallen night elf city of Suramar, as well as a brand-new raid: the Trial of Valor, which sends players deep into the vrykul underworld of Helheim.
World of Warcraft: Legion, which also brought a new Demon Hunter class, is already available in stores.
