Star Wars Concept Artist Stephen Chang Shares Visions Of Futuristic Flight

Stephen Chang has worked on Star Wars games at LucasArts for 7 years, and is likely working on Visceral's new project now that he's at EA, but his own personal concepts are much more down to earth. 

Chang, an aviation enthusiast, has put together a set of futuristic takes on commercial airliners. Chang believes that future airliners will adapt more organic designs, and he attempted to reflect that in his designs. However, they also borrow heavily from real world technology. His concept of 250+ person airliner draws inspiration from NASA's shape-shifting wing technology, while the 40-person passenger plane above is inspired by the V-22 Osprey. Though these designs don't directly tie to Star Wars, it's very possible that Chang's personal style will influence the games going forward. 

The identity of EA's new Star Wars project is still unknown. A little over a year ago, Amy Hennig announced her departure from Uncharted developer Naughty Dog and a new job working on an unannounced Star Wars title. Shortly after revealing her place at Visceral, Hennig also stated via Twitter that actor Todd Stashwick was joining her to help co-write the new game. Few new details have been given about Visceral’s game since Hennig’s announcement.

Artist Pays Special Tribute To Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s Mechanical Arm

Ahead of the September 1 release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, artist Emilio Lopez has crafted a piece commemorating the loss and eventual replacement of Big Boss' limb. You can find the full piece below.

We're still not sure how crucial Big Boss' robotic arm will be to the overall plot of the game, but Konami seems to placing it front and center as an important part of the game by offering a statue of the hand as part of the game's collector's edition.

Konami, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain all seem to be going through some kind of strange separation, though exactly what is happening is still unclear. You can find out more about it here, but the game is on track for release on September 1 on Xbox One and Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The PC version of the game releases September 15.

You can find more from Emilio Lopez on his DeviantArt page as well as his official website.
