As promised during BlizzCon 2013, World of Warcraft character models and animations for many of the game’s existing playable races are being fully revamped. The new models will go live alongside Warlords of Draenor. Chris Robinson, senior art director for WoW, has posted a developer blog over on Battle.net detailing the modeling process, the increase in polygon count to over 5,000 in some cases, and the retouching of nearly every animation for all of the characters. Read up on more of this through the link. Closed beta testing for Warlords of Draenor is looming, and the expansion is slated for release in the fall.
