According to the system requirements for World of Warcraft’s upcoming expansion, Shadowlands, you’ll need an SSD system configurations.

For previous expansions, the minimum requirements list 70 GB on a 7200 RPM HDD (hard disk drive), the recommended specs list 70 GB available on an SSD, as an example. However, Shadowlands will require 100 GB of SSD storage for both minimum and recommended specs.

If nothing else, this move continues to signal the shift away from mechanical hard drives to solid state ones. In case you missed it, Shadowlands received a release date of October 27. Additionally, more Connected Realms are on their way for September 2 and September 3. Finally, check out 10 Souls we’d like to see in Shadowlands.
