Significant Player Model & Armor Upgrades Coming! - Darkfall -

The Darkfall art team is hard at work on improvements to the game's player models and armor sets that are sure to excite Darkfall fans!

In an announcement made by Darkfall Community Liason "Laenih" on the official Darkfall forums, details on the upcoming improvements were laid out along with an example image of what players can expect.

More below:

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.

So, in short, players can expect new faces, hairdos, and other general details, along with caster specific robes and armor.

Laenih also stresses that these additions and optimizations are being done with the game's performance in mind, so those worried about increased lag due to the snazzy changes should be at ease.

What do you guys think of the new armor sets? Pretty slick? Or meh?
