Cataclysm Systemvoraussetzungen bekannt

Die World of Warcraft Cataclysm Systemvoraussetzungen wurden von Blizzard offiziell vorgestellt. Zwar hat man mit dem Patch 4.0.1 eine Menge Änderungen im Hintergrund durchgeführt, wodurch das Spiel weniger Power braucht. Aber selbst mit diesen Änderungen halte ich die genannten Cataclysm Systemvoraussetzungen für sehr niedrig. Es wrd sich zeigen ob sich Cataclysm mit einem solchen System wirklich akzeptabel spielen lassen wird, ich bezeiwefle das momentan doch relativ stark.

For a complete list of supported 3D cards, please visit
A keyboard and mouse are required. Input devices other than a standard mouse and keyboard are not supported.

For what platforms is the game available?

The game is available for PCs and Macs.

Does the game require a 3D accelerator?

Yes, the game requires a 3D graphics card. We support a wide range of 3D cards that conform to the system requirement outlined above. Specific 3D card support information can be found here.

Is the game playable over a dial-up connection?

No, a Broadband connection is required. While the game may play on a dialup connection, both the size of updates and the constant flow of data required are beyond what Dialup can typically handle.

Is the game playable over a Wireless or Satellite connection?

No, these are not supported connection types. While the game may play there are expectations of high latency, lag or disconnects involved. You can check your Internet provider’s website for their Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) section. One such website states: “On-line games are not well suited for satellite-based Internet service due to associated latency factors.”

What is the camera perspective of the game?

The game supports third-person and first-person camera perspectives. Players will be able to utilize the mouse wheel to adjust the camera angle as the situation dictates and switch between cameras on the fly.

Are SLI or XFIRE features supported for multiple video cards?

Yes, these are supported features although that does not necessarily translate to higher performance.

Does the game utilize multiple CPU cores?

Yes, the game will recognize and use resources for up to 3 processors during play.

Apple’s OS X Boot Camp software lets me boot Windows XP on my Intel-based Mac. Can I run Blizzard games under Windows using Boot Camp on these systems?

Yes, you can if you wish to do so. However, please note that we can’t offer technical support for Blizzard games run under Windows using Boot Camp at this time due to it not being tested.

What is Blizzard’s plan for native Mac OS support, now that Boot Camp is available?

We have a recognized track record of native Mac OS support, and we have no plans to break with that tradition. We understand that our Mac player base prefers native software whenever possible, and our cross-platform development practice addresses that.


Ich würde diese Cataclysm Systemvoraussetzungen also wirklich als absolutes Minimum betrachten. Gut währe natürlich neben den Mindest-Systemvorrausetzungen und den empfohelenen Cataclysm Systemvoraussetzungen auch noch Angaben zur Systemvorraussetzungen für die maximalen Grafikeinstellungen zu machen, aber vermutlich möchte Blizzard nicht zu viele Spieler verschrecken ;-)

    Wenn ich’s recht sehe, hat WoW bereits 28 GB Festplattenplatz gekapert. Mit dem Release müssten da dann noch einige Inhalte entfernt werden um auf die 25 GB zu kommen. Vielleicht habe ich ja aber schon beide Versionen der Alten Welt auf der Platte und sobald Cataclysm aktiviert wird, wird der derzeitige Content gelöscht?

    Ansonsten bin ich aber gut aufgestellt. Sogar Keyboard/Mouse habe ich mir schon gekauft.
