Dorje Bellbrook's Destiny concept art designs

If you’ve played Bungie’s Destiny, you’ll know how beautifully designed it is. From rocks on the moon to the tapestry of design that can be found in the darkest Hive catacombs, Destiny is a visual feast of design. But to get there, Bungie had to know what it’s designers and artists were going to make.

This is where the concept art comes to the fore – the development at this stage has a crucial effect on what the game environments end up looking like (and also determining the ‘feel’ of a cave, castle or common room).

So it’s no surprise Bungie through concept designer Dorje Bellbook a bone and asked him to get involved. Here’s some of the design work that Bellbook did – you can see how influential his works turned out to be.

Awoken cosplay from Destiny

This is a pretty fine Hunter Guardian from Destiny. The Awoken should have that 'blue steel' look down right? Insert in appropriate how you would like to 'level up' with her here.

Is that gun from Destiny or District 9?

Yet another Destiny trailer - this time you're going to Venus.

Bungie have released another trailer for Destiny - remember how games only used to have one trailer? Now you get about 50 in varying forms. Not that we mind!

Here's how Bungie described it:

"Venus was once the site of a great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost.

Defeat our enemies. Explore the ancient ruins of our solar system. Become Legend."

Can't hardly wait!

See ya round Casey Hudson

Casey Hudson has officially left BioWare.

The guy who screwed the ending* of Mass Effect 3 said:

"After what already feels like a lifetime of extraordinary experiences, I have decided to hit the reset button and move on from BioWare. I’ll take a much needed break, get perspective on what I really want to do with the next phase of my life, and eventually, take on a new set of challenges," he wrote in a letter shared with his colleagues. “This is without a doubt the most difficult decision of my career.

Though there’s never an easy time to make a change like this, I believe this is the best time for it. The foundation of our new IP in Edmonton is complete, and the team is ready to move forward into pre-production on a title that I think will redefine interactive entertainment. Development for the next Mass Effect game is well underway, with stunning assets and playable builds that prove the team is ready to deliver the best Mass Effect experience to date. And the Dragon Age: Inquisition team is putting the final touches on a truly ambitious title with some of the most beautiful visuals I’ve seen in a game.

But while I feel that the time has come, this is without a doubt the most difficult decision of my career. BioWare is as magical a place today as it was when I started. The projects we are working on are some of the most exciting and prestigious in the world. The talent in our teams is second to none. And the people here are some of my closest friends. I’ve spent more time with many of you than my own family, and I have enjoyed every day of it.”

It will be interesting to see what he gets up to next. Speaking of gaming Rock Stars, what has Cliff Bleszinski been up to lately other than playing video games with his wife? Maybe Casey and Cliff should team up**?

*We’re over it really.
** No bloody way.
