Blizzard has offered a look at World of Warcraft‘s updated human male model that will be added with the Warlords of Draenor expansion.
Art director Chris Roberts explained on the Battle.net blog that the aim with this new model was to honor the style of the original while increasing graphical fidelity and fixing key issues.
“The male Human has long been a source of criticism from some of you for his odd proportions and face geometry,” he explained. “We’ve taken great care to ensure we’re not changing so much that he looks completely unlike anything you’d expect, while also correcting some of the more glaring problems. We hope you enjoy the results!”
Warlords of Draenor is currently in alpha testing and is set to launch by the end of this year.
