World of Warcraft made its revolutionary debut in 2004
  • Fast forward four weeks and we can now finally see the way the new shadows look in the forthcoming Shadowlands expansion WOW TBC Classic Gold. Before this week we reported that the new NVIDIA Game Ready Driver added support for the brand new attribute in Shadowlands, and several Beta/PTR players have currently shared some screenshots comparing Shadowlands together and without the Ray Traced Shadows enabled.

    According to Blizzard, the new option within Shadowlands uses DirectX Ray Tracing 1.1 (DXR 1.1) along with a DXR 1.1-capable motorist is needed to utilize Ray Traced Shadows.We've contained the common comparison screenshots down under. As may be seen in those shots, and as might have been anticipated, the ramifications of Ray Traced Shadows are not that clear but do seem to be more powerful in darker areas with low lighting.

    Blizzard has updated their minimal necessary spec to include 100GB storage area for both SSDs and hard drives. Howeverthey warn players who performance of your hard drive may impact Shadowland's gaming experience.

    In a sudden turn of events, Blizzard has announced that World of Warcraft Shadowlands now needs a 100GB SSD for a minimum requirement, but does that mean that you can't run the game with a regular spinning hard disk? A couple of Shadowlands beta testers have reported that running the game on an HDD has not influenced their gameplay or performance in any substantial way. However, because this growth is still in beta, this is subject to change.

    However, it's most likely a fantastic idea to run this game in an SSD anyhow (here is our list of Greatest SSDs). You can also potentially experience"hitching" where the HDD isn't fast enough to stream assets in real time.

    Purchasing an SSD should not be a huge problem for most users -- nearly all new PCs and laptops include solid state storage. Additionally, with the price of SSDs dropping exponentially over the last few years buy WOW Classic Burning Crusade Gold, grabbing a glistening new SSD only for Shadowlands won't break the bank for many budget gamers.
