A Fan Recreated Cyberpunk 2077 trailer in World of Warcraft

Who would have thought that a cyberpunk trailer would work well in the 16-year-old World of Warcraft? An impressive fan trailer now shows that this is possible

Cyberpunk 2077 and World of Warcraft are so completely different that it hardly seems possible to combine them with one another. That didn’t bother Youtuber Duren, however, and he recreated a trailer of Cyberpunk 2077 in World of Warcraft. In our opinion, it is closer to the original than we had thought in advance.

How do you combine cyberpunk 2077 and WoW?

The trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 published for E3 2018 served as a template for the implementation, which already gives you a good insight into the world of the game. Among other things, you will see a subway, futuristic metropolises, and action-packed firefights.

How was the trailer made?

To show all of this in World of Warcraft, the Youtuber relied on a peculiarity of the fantasy setting. Because that already offers numerous SciFi elements such as the city of Mechagon and the technologically advanced inventions of the gnomes such as firearms and vehicles.

Duren exported these elements with programs such as the WoW Model Viewer and the WoW Export Tools. Then he put them back together with Cinema4D and After Effects and animated them. Videos created in this way are also known as »machinima«.

In a timelapse of the work, the Youtuber shows more precisely how he created one of the scenes. The result looks anything but amateurish, but could also be used as a trailer for a new WoW addon.

The cyberpunk replica is not Duren’s first corresponding work. He’s built other trailers with World of Warcraft assets in the past, including a video for Mad Max.

Original trailer for Cyberpunk 2077

The upcoming SciFi-RPG should appear on December 10th, 2020 after several postponements. There is already quite a bit of image material accordingly.

In our large listing, you can find all the trailers for Cyberpunk 2077 again. This shows you how the game will look on the different platforms:

Nothing should stand in the way of the release itself: Some retailers seem to have shipped the game too early. At least that is proven by videos that can be found online, showing that some players can already play the title.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
