With the news that WoW's next expansion, Dragonflight, could be launching this year, fans have flocked the pre-order page. We've detailed the system requirements that PC players will need to ensure smooth sailing.

With pre-orders going live for World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot a bit of small print which read, "World of Warcraft: Dragonflight will be available on or before Dec. 31, 2022." Previously, Blizzard revealed that they would be aiming for a Q1 2023 release, but the statement has sparked some hope in fans that they could be seeing the expansion this year instead.

Of course, it's still possible that Blizzard will keep to their 2023 date given that there's no official definitive release date.

Players looking to pre-order regardless will want to take note of the expansion's system requirements.
