XCOM 2 isn’t out yet, but the game’s hardcover art book is, and the publishers were kind enough to pass some images along to Fine Art for a little showcase of the Firaxis artist’s work.

There’s a nice mix here of character art, environment stuff and even some animation tests, which we don’t get to see enough of here.


The artists included here are Piero Macgowan, Seamas Gallagher, Aaron Whitehead and Alan Denham (in-game models).

You can grab the book here.

Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios. If you’re in the business and have some concept, environment, promotional or character art you’d like to share, drop us a line!
