World of Warcraft Fan Remasters One of Wrath of the Lich King's Most Iconic Cinematics
One World of Warcraft fan loves the Wrath of the Lich King expansion and one of its iconic moments so much that he has taken it on himself to completely remaster the Wrathgate cinematic. YouTuber IKedit released the 5-minute video over the holidays with its amazing new look thanks to updated character models and much more.
WoWhead posted a quick review of the events taking place at the Wrathgate when the combined forces of Alliance and Horde confronted Arthas, the Lich King:
At the start of Wrath of the Lich King, the Alliance and Horde attacked Northrend from different zones, gradually meeting up in Dragonblight. Here, the two factions agreed to work together to attack Angrathar the Wrathgate, a key location that served as a gateway into Icecrown. Led by Highlord Bolvar Fordragon and Warlord Dranosh Saurfang, the troops made some progress fighting the early waves of the Lich King's forces--although it all went south very quickly when the Lich King made an appearance, summoned by Fordragon. In short order, the Lich King killed Dranosh Saurfang, and before he could fight Bolvar, the Forsaken rained down plague upon the battlefield. Many Alliance and Horde troops perished, and the Lich King was seriously wounded. The red dragons from the nearby Wyrmrest Temple purified the area, cleansing the entire battlefield. Although Bolvar, his body badly burnt by the purifying flames, survived in a limbo between life and death, he was captured by the Scourge.
For comparison's sake, we've also included the original.
