Last week, the developers of Blizzard Entertainment revealed the secret of the upcoming WoW Shadowlands release as part of the opening light live show for Gamescom 2020. On October 27, 2020, the WoW clocks will be moved to the front shortly after midnight.

But with Shadowlands and the associated technical adjustments, the demands on the players’ hardware also increase. Among other things, we can enjoy the ray tracing light effects. We have therefore summarized the current minimum requirements and recommended hardware specifications below.

WoW Shadowlands System Requirements

Due to the technical adjustments, the requirements have increased again compared to the Battle for Azeroth. Particularly interesting here is the minimum requirement for a Solid State Drive (SSD), which has slowly but surely replaced conventional Hard Disk Drives (HDD) in the past few years. This ensures significantly faster data transfer rates and thus drastically shortens loading times, especially in games.

Requirements for Windows

For Windows computers, the developers recommend at least one NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 760 (or comparable AMD graphics card) and at least one Intel® Core ™ i5-3450.

However, if you don’t want to play at the limit, an Intel® Core ™ i7-6700k (or a comparable AMD processor) and an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 (or a comparable AMD graphics card) are recommended.
