Blizzard reveals World of Warcraft: Shadowlands requirements on PC

Blizzard reveals World of Warcraft: Shadowlands requirements on PC

World of Warcraft has millions of players and it's for a good reason. Despite having many detractors, Blizzard's MMORPG offers quite a solid experience and although it has evolved since the game was released in 2004, it's still one of the best that you can find online. There are many players that have established a love/hate relationship with the game and that come back every time a new expansion is released to leave months later when they have experienced most of what the game has to offer, but the huge majority stays in the game and have formed a more or less solid community of players that support the game. Of course, one of the most important moments for those players is when a new expansion is released, and there is one coming soon. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will be the eighth expansion in the franchise, and like its predecessors, it will add a lot of new content and novelties to the game.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will take players to a new world where they will have to find allies to fight against new threats. Sylvanas has broken the veil between the world of the living and the Shadowlands and, as usual, players will be in the center of the action. This new expansion will also introduce a new leveling system, gameplay mechanics, factions to join, and lands to explore. 



Before all that arrives, you need to make sure that you will be able to experience it properly, and the first step is knowing the requirements that your PC has to meet in order to be able to run the game. Although the original World of Warcraft was not that demanding in terms of hardware, the graphics improvements made in the game over the years have caused it to ask for better PCs and World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is not going to be the exception to the rule. If you are playing World of Warcraft right now, it's quite unlikely that you will have to modify your computer, but if you want to play on max settings and run a good number of addons you may need to make some adjustments.
