GameGeex - Fan recreates WoW's Duskwood zone in Unreal Engine 4 A fan of WoW builds a zone in UE4. Next stop: VR WoW. I called it.

Most of the game recreations I've seen that depict areas within World of Warcraft have been in Minecraft, but one intrepid Blizzard fan has gone one step further. Youtuber Daniel L has taken on the laborious project of creating the entire Duskwood zone in Unreal Engine 4, and you can see his inital progress in the video below.

Some have pointed out that this sort of direct interpretation misses a lot of the charm of the original WoW, and to some extent I would agree. But I love the idea that someone would be able to load this mod and be able to walk around a photo-realistic version of Azeroth -- something I've dreamed of doing for years. This sort of work might be what eventually leads to a World of Warcraft VR edition. 

Now if only he would tackle Karazhan next. That would be EPIC. Watch the video yourself below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
