Mass Effect Andromeda concept art puts game to shame

Most of a game's concept art is never used, but we can only imagine how awesome Mass Effect: Andromeda would look and feel if BioWare had used more of it in the final game.

As a gamer, I really like concept art. These drawings are a window into a game that never was, the purest form of imagination running wild, and visuals that give developers much-needed ideas to mold their game around. Eric Bellefeuille, Presentation Director at Eidos Montreal, worked on Mass Effect: Andromeda's UI, and just released some fresh concept art that frankly puts the actual game to shame.

 

 

One of the most stark differences between the concept art and the final game is how great the characters look. Cora looks fantastic, and Peebee looks much, much better. The character models are for the lack of a better word quite beautiful and barely resemble the grotesque half-finished mockeries found in the retail game.

 

Never has it been so clear that BioWare shipped Mass Effect: Andromeda than now, especially when we have definite proof that the characters once looked amazing.
