World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is doing well and released just a little over one week ago.

Activision-Blizzard announced today World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth sold over 3.4 million units day-one.

The firm said sales of the first full day of launch on August 14 set a day-one sales record for the franchise.

Battle for Azeroth players have plenty of extra content to look forward to in the coming weeks. First up is the first Warfront, Stromgarde, a 20-player co-op battle for control of a stronghold in the Arathi Highlands.

On September 4 the expansion’s first raid, Uldir, will go live. Come September 4, the first PvP season and first Mythic Keystone dungeon season will kick off.

The Mythic Keystone introduces new challenges based on the “corrupted denizens” dwelling in the Uldir raid.

Beyond that, additional updates are in the works including the ability to recruit the Kul Tiran humans and Zandalari trolls as playable Allied Races.

More information on future updates to World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth will be shared at a later date.
