If that picture is the new model, they need to go back to the drawing board.

Who are these people working at MMO development studios?

That elf could be from ANY OTHER ultra-bland, utterly un-stylized fantasy MMO, of which there are tons. This boggles my mind.

It's someone's job to pic an art style and give a game an artistic point of view. Why why why why why! would they just choose nothing. Just generic. It's like they look up fantasy in the encyclopedia and just copy whatever.

It's not just unimaginative, it's bad game design and bad business.

Sorry this is a pet peeve of mine with the genre, and I just can't believe that this lesson has not been learned yet. Your art has to have a point of view.

Looks like Morrowind to me.

People that enjoy Morrowind have no problem with it.

first person / 3rd person is now more natural, better fps, lots of small fixes it seems to me for interface since I last played few months ago.

Lots more people playing as well at least in newbie areas, im having a great time atm.

oh also i notice the stat gain/ skill gain (rigor etc) is much faster now, i have in four days of starting this character gained what took me in about 4 weeks ish when i played a few months ago.

Darkfall has improved in leaps and bounds since the launch of the North American server. It looks MUCH better now than it did at launch and the play has improved drastically.

The only thing we need now is more players :)

Darkfall really does have beautiful scenery. The character models are certainly different than in other MMOs - I always thought the elves at least had a goth feel - but I still thought they were nice. It'll be interesting to see the new models live.

PS - pls don't feed trolls. Let them starve on their own inadequacies. ;)

While it does appear to be some improvement, it's still nowhere near the visual quality of more established games like Age of Conan or Eve. Right now my biggest graphical issue is the total lack of fluidity of characters when they fight. They look like stiff bots when they get hit or do damage.
