Blizzard Entertainment announced World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is the fastest-selling PC game of all time, selling over 3.7 million units on day one alone. The previous record was set by Blizzard's Diablo III selling more than 3.5 million units in its first day.
The game leading up to the launch of the expansion had sustained its highest number of players on monthly or longer-term subscriptions when compared to the same period ahead of and following any previous expansion.
"It’s been a huge thrill to enter this whole-new dimension of the Warcraft universe together with millions of players around the world," said the president of Blizzard Entertainment J. Allen Brack.
"It’s been equally rewarding to see players enjoying all of the new features and content in Shadowlands—whether they’re exploring new aspects of their characters with the Covenants or setting foot in WoW for the first time with the new-player experience in Exile’s Reach—and there’s much more to come."
Here is a brief overview of the expansion:
