Blizzard Entertainment's highly anticipated expansion for World of Warcraft broke the day one sales record for computer games with nearly 2.4 million copies of The Burning Crusade sold. Some of the expansion's notable features include a higher level cap, controllable flying mounts, and a new continent to explore.
Day-one sales totals on both continents were similar, with an estimated total of nearly 1.2 million copies sold on the first day in North America and an estimated total of more than 1.1 million copies sold in Europe within the first 24 hours of launch.* By the end of the first day of availability on both continents, a total of more than 1.7 million players had already logged in and upgraded World of Warcraft to play The Burning Crusade.

"In addition to setting a new day-one PC-game sales record at our GameStop and EB Games stores, the expansion garnered more online pre-orders than any other PC game in our company’s history."
