XCOM 2 con­cept art bit.ly/xcom­con­cept

Fi­raxis con­cept artist Dong­min Shin has shared a batch of mar­vel­lous XCOM2 con­cept art on his ArtS­ta­tion page. There are sev­eral 3D mod­els of in-game tools such as the X4 charge, Over­drive Serum ap­pli­ca­tor, Bat­tle Scan­ner and Mag­netic Can­non, but bet­ter still are the ex­am­ples of in-game ad­ver­tis­ing sig­nage. The col­lec­tion takes in pro­pa­ganda and re­cruit­ment posters, ad­verts for boxy fu­tur­is­tic-look­ing cars, fash­ion and do­mes­tic ap­pli­ances, and – a par­tic­u­lar high­light – fast food. The lat­ter cat­e­gory uses clean, ab­stract de­signs to mar­ket daunt­ingly pro­por­tioned burg­ers, ice cream and milk­shakes. But the geo­met­ric prints used by some of the pro­pa­ganda posters are equally be­guil­ing. It’s a fine op­por­tu­nity to ogle the an­gu­lar aes­thetic of XCOM’s uni­verse up close.
