One of these things is not like the other. On the left, the concept art. On the right, the character model.
This is not the first such discrepancy we’ve documented here, but it’s a particularly interesting one. For one thing, Rift actually has much better character models than most games, let alone most MMOs, so it’s surprising to see their art is so… typical. Their character models set them apart from other MMOs, in a good way. I find it strange they would undersell that point.
