Blizzard shows off the remodeled Night Elves for Warcraft III: Reforged

No elf.

Warcraft III: Reforged might have missed its initial launch date of “by the end of 2019,” but not by much; the game is still slated to come out on January 28th. Before that happens, though, wouldn’t you like to see how the game’s improved models for the Night Elf faction look? Because you can do that right now on the official site, showing off four main story heroes (Illidan, Cenarius, Tyrande, and Maiev) along with several of the racial units in all their glory.

As with the other models, there’s a distinct visual flair to these units that’s far more detailed than their original incarnations but also a different sort of style from the World of Warcraft races that were obviously derived from these same units. It’s an interesting shift in art styles that you can see in action for yourself if you want to take a look before launch and have no interest in the game’s ongoing multiplayer test.

Keep in mind, you’re seeing them super zoomed in here. At a significant distance, they look just fine even after being this old.

Don’t get too attached to Cenarius, Night Elves.

Only things I care about with Reforged are the campaign and custom maps, so the multiplayer test is pointless to me since I assume it’s just regular ladder matches.

While I love WC3, especially frozen throne, still boycotting Blizzard products.

They’ve been working out. Wait till you see the well-toned Scourge models.

No panda faces on Illidan’s weapons, literally unplayable.

Also this is the first piece of actual news since the announcement over a year ago, and they’re releasing in 2 weeks.

First piece in MOP maybe, WoWhead published a lot of posts for it last month.

I was talking about the news released by Blizzard.

They announced release day on Dec 17, beta on Oct 28, not much but for sure this is not the only piece of news for the game.

My thought as well. Of course I never realized he had panda weapons in the first place.

Wow, what a difference time makes.
