Blizzard Entertainment’s beloved MMORPG game World of Warcraft is on its way. Millions of different players around the world are waiting for new expansion pack. In addition, the company continues to provide information about the game every day. As far as we have seen from the trailer this time the players will not run on adventures on Azeroth. They will set sail to a land called Shadowlands that can only be reached after death. In addition, Afterlives videos published in small sections, players is also given information about the story. Another issue that players are curious about besides the story is the Shadowlands system requirements. Because many visual elements will change in the new expansion pack. An update has been made to the previously published system requirements.
Shadowlands System Requirements Update
Blizzard had previously explained the minimum and maximum system requirements in its statement. When we examined them, we saw that there was an SSD hard disk among the minimum requirements. This was a detail that made many players revolt. Because this technology is still not available to everyone at a price for now. Blizzard listened to the players who expressed these complaints on reddit. Accordingly, it announced that it updates the PC system requirements. When we look at the updated list, we can see that there is no SSD requirement in the minimum part of Shadowlands system requirements. Mechanical disc players will also be able to play the game. However, Blizzard also said that long loading times can bore the players. When we look at another updated information, the team that preferred the AMD Vega 65 graphics card continues on its way with AMD 64 instead.
Shadowlands will be released at 27 October 2020.
