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.

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.
