Around 1,300 ‘Warcraft’ fans gathered on Tuesday (June 7) night to show off their cosplay ahead of the film’s premiere at a cinema in the Shanghai metropolitan area. Cosplayers dressed as characters from the online role-playing game ‘World of Warcraft’, posing for photos before the fantasy adventure movie’s midnight launch. Ai Li, a game player of ‘World of Warcraft’ for 11 years, was one of six leading fans to organise the ‘Warcraft’ event. The team had less than one month to prepare and Ai said she hoped the event could help fans recall memories of playing ‘World of Warcraft’ during their youth. ‘Warcraft’ fan Xue Haokun even proposed to his girlfriend surrounded by many film-goers in costume. Xue said he had played the game for more than 10 years and met his love, Li Na, through it.
