BlizzCon 2013: World of Warcraft Updated Character Models

New character models. Players have been demanding them for years. However, new fuel was added to the fire with the introduction of the Pandarian who looked at least 100 times better than any other character model in the game. While players who chose this race got to run around with their shiney new character models, most of us were stuck with models that were just a little outdated to say the least.


Finally, at long last, Blizzard has responded to our pleas and brand new character models are in the works. These models will retain the iconic features of the race, but be more refined and become more life-like, without losing the essence of the character. Characters will have facial expressions, more freedom of movement, and just a much cooler look overall.


We got a glimpse of these character models today at the Art of World of Warcraft panel and I was utterly floored at how they look. The improvement almost cannot be put into words. In fact, the improvement shouldn't be put into words. I could sit here and tell you all about how great these models look, but it won't do them justice. So scroll down for some screenshots of some before and after character models pics and be amazed in your own right. Enjoy!

As mentioned before, I personally think these character models look fantastic. What do you think about the new character models? Are they everything you hoped they would be? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
