World of Warcraft has always had some pretty incredible scenery, but the draw distance has been kept relatively low - until, thanks to redditor lurker_becomes_lurkd, just now.
It's just outright incredible looking at some of these screencaps. The game was never truly intended to be seen at this distance, but it ends up looking fantastic anyway. The sharp contrast between multiple zones in this shot, for example, almost looks like a map drawn by a highly talented artist. Even if you don't play WoW, this is beautiful, almost Dead End Thrills level work.
