Columbia, the stunning city-in-the-sky environment that players navigate in the dystopia game BioShock Infinite, is like Rome -- neither was built in a day.
Instead of being put together with bricks and mortar, the environments were put together by an incredibly talented team of artists, programmers and coders who brought the dystopia game to life. Since BioShock Infinite makers 2K Games and Irrational Games have released this stunning gallery of concept art for the game by Ben Lo, gamers are being given a glimpse into the sheer craft that went into creating these living and breathing virtual environments.
Having played through BioShock Infinite myself, I can attest that these awesome concept art designs are not only beautiful, but extremely close to what ended up as levels in the final game. If you appreciate great artwork, consider making one of these pieces of concept art your desktop background.
