Mass Effect 3 doesn't come out until the end of the year, but in the meantime you can feast your eyes on some absolutely amazing concept art by artist Robert Simmons, which appears to be official ME3 concept art.

Check out a bizarre multi-eyed creature, an alien world, and an inside look at the Normandy 3 below.

So we don't know for sure whether Robert Simons is a Mass Effect 3 concept artist, or whether this is official ME3 concept art, but it certainly looks genuine. What do you think?

Update: Simons doesn't actually work for Bioware. He updated his blog to say:

First off this is NOT real concept work for Bioware. I go to school at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and this work was for a class called Architecture 2. In this class we pick a game and design a sequel to it in order to get jobs. In that class we have to present as if we are really apart of that company, that way there are real logos of ME3 and Bioware on these paintings. Secondly, I am sorry if this caused any distress to anyone that feels offended over this work.

The destruction of the original Normandy was pretty stressful for me to watch - I don't think I could tolerate losing the Normandy SR2, especially after all the upgrades I put into it to avoid having my team mates offed early on in the suicide mission! Who would build the SR3 anyway? The Alliance aren't going to be pleased that the plans for their super secret top of the line cruiser got into the hands of Cerberus to start with, let alone your allegiance with them during the Collector Incident. Depending on how you played the end of ME2, the Illusive Man is probably not going to give you a brand new ship either! A new Normandy wouldn't make sense really - an upgraded SR2, I could understand, but not a brand new ship.

I know they've been confirmed as fakes now, but still. Might as well have got that off my chest =D
