Cyberpunk 2077’s E3 2018 trailer gets remade in World of Warcraft, in this fan-made crossover

Cyberpunk 2077 is finally about to release in just over a week. CD Projekt RED’s upcoming FPS-RPG Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games to come out this year. After numerous delays, Cyberpunk 2077 is now finally coming to the PC on December 10th.

Recently a Twitter user @Duren_movies created a Machinima trailer for Cyberpunk 2077. This kind of trailer is created through the manipulation of video game graphics, which means Duren has used elements from both CP 2077 and WoW to create a mash up trailer.

Duren managed to merge the high fantasy setting of World of Warcraft, with the hyper and futuristic look and feel of Cyberpunk 2077 in this latest project.

The following video is a recreation of the trailer CD Projekt Red debuted back at E3 2018, but instead it now uses the character models and environments taken straight out of World of Warcraft universe.

As you can see Duren has managed to recreate Cyberpunk 2077 game with Orc, Goblins, Worgen and Elves. The project seems to be very well crafted, in my opinion. The trailer uses various WoW characters to portray the role of those featured in the original CP 2077 trailer. It not only includes the animations, but also has a complete voiceover as well.

Duren has used WOW model viewer and WOW export tools. The video features Gnomish city Mechagon and the fan-favorite Goblin Trade Prince, Jastor Gallywix. Banshee Queen Sylvanas and popular Warchief Garrosh also make a cameo appearance.

The machinima trailer was so impressive that even the CDPR developers noticed it. And the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account also shared this trailer in a recent tweet.

Duren has created few other great WoW Machinima projects as well, with recreations of trailers for Mad Max and Jurassic World, as well as a lengthy series called “The Legion”.

A number of fellow Cyberpunk and Warcraft fans took to the comments to acknowledge how authentic Duren’s work is, with many also joking that this gives us a fun glimpse at what a Shadowrun MMO could look like.

CDPR has promised that Cyberpunk 2077 will offer one of the deepest and immersive gameplay experiences. There is no doubt that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to have a huge content-driven story and gameplay.

The game will support both Ray Tracing and DLSS 2.0. CD Projekt RED will be using Ray Tracing in order to improve Diffuse Illumination, Reflections, Ambient Occlusion and Shadows.

Earlier this month, NVIDIA stated that Cyberpunk 2077 will not have any proprietary NVIDIA Ray Tracing tech, and should work on all DXR-compatible GPUs. However, Marcin Momot confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will not support Ray Tracing on AMD’s latest GPUs at least at launch.

CD Projekt RED has also revealed the official Ray Tracing and non-RT PC requirements for Cyberpunk 2077. Additionally, Cyberpunk 2077 will be a DX12-only game, and will only work on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Cyberpunk 2077 releases on December 10th.
