The Darkfall art department has confirmed on the official forums that it is currently working on improving or completely redoing all armor and player models in the game. New armor models are also being added, including the new leather and plate sets that can be seen in the above image.
"Of course this overall update to the player models will also include new faces, general details and new and additional hairdos for all your customization needs," Community Liaison Laenih said. You can read the full post after the jump.
The artist Team under the wing of Henning Ludvigsen granted us a bit of time to talk about one of many things they are working on for this year.
It seems the department is in over drive and is working feverishly on upgrading already existing assets but they also have some additional nice surprises up their sleeve, we were told.
As mentioned though, they allowed us to take a glance at one of the things to come:
What we were shown are upgrades to both player models and armor.
Not only are all the armors and player models either being improved or completely redone, they also informed us that new armor models are being added.
The Gandalf wannabes might be delighted to hear that this also includes adjustments to robe models and special new caster armor they are working on.
Of course this overall update to the player models will also include new faces, general details and new and additional hairdos for all your customization needs.
Henning particularly mentioned that they are planning on giving special attention to certain races in terms of character models.
They also assured us that the updates are being done while being in direct contact with the programmers to ensure that the playability remains optimal.
And as mentioned, that is only glimpse of things they are going to surprise you with this year. They were generous enough to provide us with an impression of the new leather armor and full plate in progress.
