The conversion of nearly every video game landscape into Minecraft continues steadily. This week already saw the birth of a project to create Mass Effect's gargantuan Citadel within the game. Now comes word that, after eight months, a full representation of World of Warcraft's lands in Minecraft has released a beta.
"Crafting Azeroth" checks in at a svelte 24 gigabytes once it unpacks, though so be sure you really want that much Minecraft before downloading (2.14 GB) and installing the free mod. The modder Ramses says that much of the creation of the map is assisted by automation software that he developed.
Using the slider above you can see what one vista looks like in Warcraft and then again in Minecraft. For more information on "Crafting Azeroth," see this forum post and this imgur gallery. Reddit, where the beta was first announced, has the link to the mod's BitTorrent link.
