World of WarCraft Shadowlands: system requirements known, Blizzard recommends SSD

  • Blizzard recommends an SSD for WoW: Shadowlands
  • Minimum requirements and recommended configuration announced
  • Overall moderate requirements

SSDs are not uncommon these days, but they appear rather irregularly in the minimum requirements of a game.

Blizzard now recommends an SSD and 100 GB storage space as a minimum for the upcoming World of WarCraft: Shadowlands.

Of course you can use a normal HDD, which also requires 100 GB of storage space, but has longer loading times and the loading of textures and models is also slower.

On the whole, the requirements of the MMO expansion are not too demanding.
