World of Warcraft: Blood Elves Bulk Up
1:20 PM | Eddie Park | 1 comment

In a curious bit of Blizzard news, ActionTrip reports that the character models for male Blood Elves in the upcoming WoW expansion The Burning Crusade have received a bit of an overhaul. Apparently, due to numerous player complaints about the original models looking too feminine, the models have been modified with a significantly more massive look.

Here's the official word from Blizzard regarding the change:

As many players have noticed, we have made a slight change to the male Blood Elf character models. In response to concerns that the Blood Elf male appeared to be too feminine, and after reviewing the model from a visual and conceptual standpoint, the decision was made to increase the body mass to give them a more substantial, masculine feel. It was also important that as members of the Horde that the Blood Elves gave the impression of strength and a more menacing presence.
Comparison pictures of the old and new models can be found at ActionTrip's article, along with some criticism of a change that may not necessarily make every player happy.
