(USA TODAY) Along with a storied career as an actor and comedian, Robin Williams was a big fan of video games.

The developers of one of his favorite video games, World of Warcraft, will pay tribute to Williams' by featuring a character inspired by him inside the massively multiplayer online universe.

The Associated Press reports WoW creators Blizzard Entertainment are exploring ways to add Williams to the game. The 63-year-old Oscar-winning actor was found dead in his home Monday.

"We haven't decided, but it will most likely be a character inspired by him or some of his favorite roles of the past," lead game designer Ion Hazzikostas tells the AP.

Hazzikostas made the comments during an event for the WoW expansion Warlords of Draenor, which launches on November 13.

Williams revealed his passion for video games such as Call of Duty and The Legend of Zelda during an interview on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in 2009 (hat tip to Variety for the link). He says the Nintendo video game inspired the name for his daughter, Zelda Williams.
