After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Won’t Require a Hardware Upgrade

Posted on Wednesday, April 16 @ 08:30:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


The upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor, will not require gamers to upgrade their machines, Blizzard has confirmed.

Those without bleeding-edge rigs will still be able to enjoy the experience without a drop in performance, as the studio is well aware there's a wide array of WoW players out there with a range in hardware capabilities.

"You shouldn't be worried about any big drop in performance; things will most likely remain very close to what you are experiencing right now. So if you're satisfied with what you have right now, then there shouldn't be any need to change anything," Blizzard explained in a post on the official forums.

In fact, there may actually be some boosts in performance, as Blizzard is "also applying a squish to anything related to stats; this means that in certain situations, there might be some performance improvements, especially when it comes to addons that process combat data." On top of that, the studio is "reducing the amount of visual clutter that currently fills every fight where a lot of players are involved. Less sparkly stuff flying around means better video performance for everyone."

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is expected to release later this year. You can read our preview here.
