The website ValveTime has posted a gallery of concept art that their source claims are leaked pieces of concept art for Valve's much-anticipated (and super long-in-development) Half Life 2: Episode 3. (I should add that the art is from an anonymous visitor from an unnamed source. So, grains of salt in hand.)

The art is described as being from "circa 2008," meaning that if they're real, they are truly just concept drawings. However, a number of things about them—the fact that the helicopter from the end of Episode 2 turns up crashed, the arctic setting, which holds with past rumors of the game's setting, and the fact that a Combine advisor is shown, all indicate that these could well be legit.

And hey, even if they're fake, some of these are still quite lovely. To see the images at full resolution (along with a bunch more of 'em), head over to ValveTime's gallery.

It ain't news about Half Life 2: Episode 3 (much less Half Life 3), but it's something.

I can't wait until they get Half-Life 2: Episode 3 out, because they can finally get past the Half-Life 2 canon and get on to creating a new canon. Hopefully this time they don't fuck it up and we get a great game with a totally new canon, world, and gameplay mechanics.
