World of Warcraft developer Blizzard may be planning to immortalise late actor Robin Williams in the form of a genie in their upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion, along with a couple of other additions.
Files datamined by fansite WoWHead from the latest beta build reveal the addition of a new NPC called "Robin the Entertainer". The nod to Williams' Genie role in DIsney's Aladdin is definitely a big one, and the idea that his in-game character has the ability to shapeshift could mean different models may be used to represent some of his more famous movie roles.
Other models spotted so far include a human female
, which is no doubt a nod to the ever popular Mrs. Doubtfire, and a human male
. That one could possibly be a take on Williams' breakout success, Mork and Mindy. We aren't quite sure where these characters will feature or what they will have to offer, as Blizzard has yet to confirm if these are indeed the official ones previously promised.
