New Woman Model in World of Warcraft Has Us Rerolling

World of Warcraft
Blizzard Entertainment

Change is finally happening to every character in the World of Warcraft. Now in its ninth year of release, World of Warcraft has been starting to show its age. Luckily, Blizzard is going to give all of your characters a much needed makeover coinciding with the release of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.

In a recent blog by Blizzard developers, the masterminds behind the most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game in the world finally revealed the changes that are going to the in-game model for female human character. Originally, the female human only contained 1,000 polygons. Now, Blizzard is aiming for over 5,000. This means that the new design will run much cleaner, have more articulation, have smoother animation and can incorporate a lot more details.

“With the revamp, we’re completely overhauling every aspect of the player models, but our goal is to do so while retaining the core look and feel that has always made them your character,” Blizzard senior art director Chris Robinson wrote. “We’ll feel like we’ve succeeded if you see the updated version of your character and it still feels like you’re looking at the character you’ve been playing for the past however many years—only someone has finally focused a lens.”

We can’t wait to see how Blizzard will finally overhaul the Tauren hump. No release date has been set, but stay tuned for our continuing coverage of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.
