If you are thinking about a game, let us say a role playing game, World of Warcraft will probably be on the list of games that you will think of. Never gets old. Truth be told, this is the most popular game that we grew up with. The Warcraft series is way too awesome to forget. Most MOBA games these days found its roots on the Warcraft franchise. Some of these games are the famous mod Defense of the Ancients (or commonly known as DoTA) and even League of Legends. But with lots of new upcoming role playing games with high definition graphics and awesome game play, Blizzard might have a bit of problem on how to keep its reputation up top. That is why they have decided to put a little flair on the game for it to have pleasant visuals. It?s about time this game gets a ?pimping?.

Just an overview of the game, World of Warcraft (or commonly referred to as WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game made by Blizzard back in 2004. It was a huge success back then since the graphics of the game was the most decent graphics available. Fourth in the Warcraft franchise, the game took place in a fantasy world of Azeroth 4 years after the events at the conclusion of the previous release, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Apparently, the game had over 7 million subscribers as of March 2014, winning a Guinness World Record for the most popular MMORPG. They also won the highest grossing video game of all time with over 10 billion USD. Beat that CoD!

With the new upcoming upgrade for World of Warcraft, the human class will be having a ?makeover. It?s about time we had a decent human face that does not look like ?pre-historic humans. Blizzard is now continuing the process of rendering ?much better graphics for the aging World of Warcraft. It?s like having a face lift for old people.

You can see that they put better details on every part of the character. Better hair strokes, good-looking face, chest hair, everything is detailed. Though the face reminds me of Ralph (from the Wreck it Ralph movie) or Shrek, it will do.
