Blizzard reveals World of Warcraft female Orc character revamp

Posted on February 20, 2014 AT 05:13am

Blizzard has offered a first look at World of Warcraft‘s revamped female Orc character model that will go live with the game’s upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion.

“When we first discussed the direction for this character, I think we all agreed right off the bat that we wanted to focus on her “warrior” side a little more,” senior art director Chris Robinson explained. ”That means moving away from the more doe-eyed version we know now toward a character you would expect to see fighting on the front lines alongside any of her Horde brothers and sisters.”

“The original female Orc’s facial expression is pretty much a blank stare, which sadly doesn’t convey much life or personality,” lead animator Steve Aguilar added. ”We wanted to give her more of an edge so she would project a confident ‘Don’t mess with me!’ attitude.”

Yesterday, World of Warcraft‘s level 90 character boost briefly appeared in the in-game store for $60.
