Robin Williams is Now a Genie in a Lamp in World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

As many of his fans are aware, Robin Williams was a video games enthusiast, even naming his daughter Zelda after he and his wife played the first Legend of Zelda game while she was pregnant. Williams also disclosed his enjoyment of Portal, Call of Duty, and World of Warcraft, among other games. 

After Williams' tragic suicide, World of Warcraft fans started a petition to have the comedic actor memorialized in the game. As the petition gained momentum, a WOW game designer announced on Twitter that a Williams tribute would indeed be added to the game.

The homage to Williams was recently spotted in the Warlords of Draenor beta version. Once a lamp is rubbed, Williams appears as a genie and says a line from his movie Aladdin, "Infinite Cosmic Power!" Additional Williams references, including a cracked egg spaceship, a nod to Mork and Mindy, can be seen as well. 

Warlords of Draenor is available for pre-purchase here. The live launch is set for November 13 of this year. Via Geeks are Sexy.
