What World of Warcraft would look like in Unreal Engine

    
75

Many words have been spilled about World of Warcraft’s relative immunity to aging due to its stylized graphics. And while that art style is quite beloved, have you ever asked yourself what WoW would look like as a modern game?

Now you can. Fan Daniel Luchau has been slaving away rendering WoW’s Elwynn Forest in the Unreal Engine. The sights are instantly recognizable, if quite prettier than gamers might have expected. Luchau said that this is very much a work-in-progress, although he has plans to cover additional zones and release the project for others to explore via virtual reality headsets.

You can watch the full two-minute fly-through after the break!

Wow that was really impressive! It’s a world I’d love to explore. The music was lovely. Oh… and glass in windows that I can see through, yay :)

Looks meh. I would rather see WoW save its cartoony look, but get improved textures and models. For trees particularly in old zones.

That looks amazing, sadly it can’t undo all the changes blizzard has made to crapify the game in its current state.
