Absolutely amazing!
I see LOTR and Conan was a big insperation to them, fantastic art direction and right one they took.

Can't wait to see gameplay and trailers!
And more of the amazing music of course.

@ Sath: I'm a big fan of the Viking-Opera thing they have going on.

I'm sorry to rain on your parade (or how the saying goes?), but these concepts seem to clinical for me.. for me, they are not inspiring. Much different from latest Castlevania game.. I like the game genre though, kinda.. :)

Clinical? I think maybe your idea of concept art is a little skewed. They need to be easily converted into something in game. They are supposed to be functional, a design of an item, character, or environment that will actually end up in the game. Most concept art isn't super pretty and crazy unless it's for early general concepts or it's being released to the public.

I cannot wait to see this game in action. I love the way the environments look so much more detailed and interesting, one of my biggest issues with Oblivion was how all of the environments were just rolling hills outside. Even the mountains lacked any contrast, there were no hard edges or rough, rugged land. Looks like the world will be very much unique and detailed.

as usual amazing....

Yeah, that last one looks very Frazetta-ish. Anyway, i just hope they manage to make a bit more varied environments this time around, unlike Oblivion and Fallout 3 that just recycled the same 4 different types of environments over and over. Maybe i'm hoping for a bit uch though :)

When looking at the small pics before clicking on them I thought the last pic looked like a dwarf finding Chutulu.

Looking forward to this game.

    Tiz I'm not overly concerned about the Facebook post, but when added to just about everything else that has happened in the last 24 hours, it doesn't look good. (1 Hour ago)
