Blizzard has just revealed the first week of sales for their ARPG expansion Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls. So far the expansion which revitalises the game has shifted 2.7 million copies and Death has been defeated more than 1.5 million times in the past seven days.
“With Reaper of Souls, we wanted to emphasize all the things that Diablo gamers have always loved about the series, from the dark gothic setting to the piles and piles of epic loot,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re excited to see that players are enjoying the changes we’ve made to the game, and we look forward to achieving our Paragon levels alongside everyone else in the weeks and months ahead.”
There’s no doubt that Reaper of Souls vastly improves the Diablo 3 experience with all its new features and I would expect those sales numbers to rise as word spreads.
