Stranglethorn and Booty Bay in Unreal Engine 4


of Tanja Barth
For a long time Booty Bay was considered the green jewel of World of Warcraft. With Cataclysm, a huge tsunami destroyed the pirate town, which lies deep in the south of Stranglethorn. But the memory of the idyllic bay lives on in the hearts of many players and fans of WoW Classic. 3D artists Dronmo and KickHimSareth are recreating Stranglethorn Valley and Booty Bay in Unreal Engine 4. Check out the fantastic pictures and video of the exciting Stranglethorn project with us.

Far south of World of Warcraft's Stranglethorn Valley is the sunny harbor of Booty Bay. For the first time, Booty Bay was mentioned in Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos as a landing place and refuge for all kinds of dangerous pirates and enterprising buccaneers. Booty Bay was one of the most popular hangouts in Vanilla WoW because both the heroes of the Horde and the Alliance were welcome there. Under the watchful eye of Baron Revilgaz, Lord of Booty Bay, all visitors to the port were allowed to trade across factions and hunt and fish to their hearts' content. Of course only on the condition that they do not support the bloodsail buccaneers, the eternal enemies of Booty Bay pirates.

Although Booty Bay no longer plays a major role in retail WoW and is rarely visited, the memory of the dangerous jungle adventures in Classic WoW lives on in many players' hearts. This is how 3D artists created Dronmo and KickHimSareth (via Reddit) the first version of Stranglethorn Jungle and Booty Bay Harbor in Unreal Engine 4.

At Artstation you can take a closer look at Dromo's work and look over his shoulder as he creates Stranglethorn. In the following video you can even take a first tour of the dangerous Stranglethorn Valley.

Unfortunately, what you cannot see at the moment in the WoW project of the artists are other landmarks of Booty Bay such as the idyllic view of the azure blue bay or the gigantic statue of Baron Revilgaz, which up to Cataclysm the harbor as a homage to the Jesus statue in front of Rio de Janeiro graced. The realistic version of Stranglethorn and Booty Bay from World of Warcraft (buy now € 14.99 ) are still among the absolute Unreal Engine highlights!
