Diablo 3 Expansion Reaper of Souls Sells 2.7 Million

Two years ago, despite a disastrous launch, Diablo III shattered PC sales records and sold 3.5 million copies in one day, and 6.3 million copies by the end of the week. 

Reaper of Souls, the Diablo III expansion, didn't set similar sales records, but did manage to sell rather impressively. Activision announced today that the expansion sold 2.7 million copies in the first week.  

The publisher also noted that Reaper of Souls has attracted quite a bit of streaming activity. On day one, Twitch streaming views of Reaper of Souls have exceeded 2.4 million views. 

Reaper of Souls brings a brand new act to Diablo III, the Crusader (a new playable character), and Adventure Mode, which allows players to skip around different story acts in the game.

    What? The expansion got right everything the vanilla version of d3 didn't have for the most part, the only things that i still pine over from d2 that i would like in d3 is the rune word system and ladder resets.

    Guess what? They patched the heck out of it and it's a VERY good game now. I too threw it away like a used rubber after just the first week upon release, but since I've been back in just two weeks ago I've logged 108 hours. I can't put it down. It's amazing now. Go ahead, redownload vanilla and see for yourself.
