WoW Shadowlands Minimum System Requirements Include An SSD?

World of Warcraft Shadowlands is releasing in the next couple of months and with it comes a brand new expansion of its world. It’s not far from truth to say that the addition of Shadowlands will make the world bigger and, as expected, more demanding. Apparently, the minimum and recommended requirements for WoW Shadowlands have leaked today, showing exactly how demanding the game is.

According to the leaked WoW Shadowlands Minimum Requirements as posted on the US Battlenet support center, the game will need 100GB of space in order to get downloaded. This practically means that Shadowlands will be somewhere around 80GB in size. Apart from that, the requirements claim that the game needs an SSD which is a bit stretched but everyone can agree that an SSD is the perfect way to play any game. Apart from the storage, all other requirements look pretty standard. Take a look:

World of Warcraft Shadowlands has no release date yet. However, we know that it will release in 2020, which means we’ll be able to play it in 3 months tops. The game will be available exclusively on PC through Blizzard’s platform, as always.
