Yusuke Kan, one of the game's artists, has released concept art for us all to enjoy. 










Amazing stuff.

Those are gorgeous. I thought Vanquish had a very awesome art style to it. Everything looked so clean and crisp, but wasn't boring. That game has some gorgeous visuals in it. 
Great game.

Yep, that looks like Vanquish.

I want a game to be released with the sketchy and rough look of concept arts. I think it'd be interesting.

Nice. Love the art style Vanquish uses.

They look ace, I wish the greener areas in the game looked as good as the art though as thats probably the weakest looking section in the game.

Didn't PoP '08 try that? 
I think I remember it was one of their goals.

@ESREVER: PoP '08 looked good, but I don't think that's really the look that I'm imagining. I'm not even sure what I'm imagining myself. I just look at those concept arts and some from other games and I just think about a game looking like that but in motion.

Wow it looks exactly like the game! I thought Vanquish looked way too busy to ever tell what was going on, but it's interesting to see that even the concept art looked like that.
 
I think Prince of Persia '08 did look pretty close to that idea.

That was apparently the design idea behind the revamped art style of Borderlands. It doesn't approach anything like actual concept art,  but it does succeed in being one of the most visually stimulating shooters ever.

One of the things I really liked about Vanquish was it's insane city and how almost none of it made sense and how delightfully loopy it was to look up and see it curving up above you. Somehow, the city looks even crazier in the concept art. 
 
Good stuff.

Beautiful stuff. Playing the game I can really see where these kind of concept art had an impact, it's a gorgeous-looking experience.

I love looking at concept art and this is really awesome.

I love it because they did such a great job translating that style into the game. I cannot tell you how much I hate seeing excellent concept art for a game, but the final product looks nothing like it.

Rad art backing up a radical game!

It was one of Gearbox's goals for Borderlands also.

The game I saw before they adapted to the Concept Art style looked nothing like any concept art I've seen. It was actually quite hideous. I don't think they based it on concept art in the same way Ubisoft did with PoP.

Oh wow, I really hope they bring out an art book for this game.
