Gamers from around the world have been participating in the Zerg invasion, as StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm passed an incredible sales mark just days after its March 12th launch day.
An incredible 1.1 million copies of the Zerg-infested instalment of the game were sold worldwide (both digitally and at retail) in the first two days it was available.
Blizzard Entertainment also revealed that over 1.1 million viewers tuned into the Heart of the Swarm’s launch broadcast, with just as many tuning in to watch the tournament at the Major League Gaming Winter Championship in Dallas, Texas.
“We want to thank the global StarCraft community for the incredible passion and support they’ve shown for Heart of the Swarm,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.
“In addition to a brand-new single-player campaign, we added a ton of enhancements with this expansion to make StarCraft II even more fun to play, and more exciting to watch. We’re pleased to see gamers and eSports fans around the world enjoying Heart of the Swarm.”
StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is now available on PC.
