Blizzard Reveals WoW: Cataclysm’s Female Worgen

A. Quinton — May. 27th 2010

When Blizzard announced that their upcoming World of Warcraft expansion Cataclysm would feature a werewolf-like race called the Worgen, I got excited, and I don’t even play WoW. It was weird, though, that all of the concept art and screenshots were of male Worgen. “Where,” the Internet groaned, “are the lady-wolfs“? Oh, wait, here they are.

As reported by The Escapist and several other sources, Blizzard recently released these “work in progress” images to show the character models and the way they’ll look in the different armour types (probably, that is– these are subject to change). Click on any of the images below for a (much) bigger version.

    Lookin’ good! Can’t wait for Cataclysm!

  • Sexy!

    Some big feet on those things. What is up with that, everyone draws werewolves with ginormous clodhoppers nowadays.

  • @ viergacht : And why only three toes?

  • viergacht , PenningtonBeast, do either of you play Wow?

  • Mac

    I am so freaking stoked. I’m already making plans and have a placeholder name on the server I want my Worgen on.

    Also, I’m a colossal nerd.

    @ Andrew: Nah, I have no free time. Besides, I used to play D&D and computer games are just too blah for me.

    @Pennington: I wondered that too. I guess they have to cute corners so the animation doesn’t lag. The three-toes thing bothered me with Diego all through the Ice Age movies, too.

  • Looks ok, good to see werewolves getting more exposure. I am not a fan of big feet/toes on the werewolves either. You can see how I am doing them in this screenshot: high res 2D comic book style.

    Wow! Amazing! I cant wait for Cata. to come out! Already Pre-ordered.

  • Paynne

    I like their eyes. Once again, Awesome!
