“As the development process for customization has progressed, our art team has taken the opportunity to make improvements to the basic character models for both male and female characters,” the devs write. “These changes are visible both in the classic character creation screen and the new appearance customization UI, as well as in the game itself.” It’s most obvious not in the “godlike abs” (hehe) but in the overall smoothness of the models thanks to the near-quadrupling of polygon count.
The Percival update will be deployed during maintenance on July 10. We expect the maintenance window to last up to 2 hours, but will keep you updated here and on our forum with any changes: https://t.co/ZC8fnnGC5E
