No Episode Three for E3, but we advise you to check out this concept art

Check out the hotness, the first concept art for Half-Life 2: Episode Three. This piece of art is part of the Into the Pixel exhibit which will take place at this year’s E for All Expo on October 3.

Featuring what can only be Gordon Freeman facing off against a Combine Advisor in what appears to be a Citadel, this promises a climactic showdown with the grub-like masterminds of Earth’s enslavement. The exhibit which features this piece will be made of sixteen different pieces of videogame art from around the world. 

This may come as little solace to those hoping to catch the latest of Freeman’s adventures at E3, but sadly Valve has confirmed we won’t be seeing Episode Three there. Just keep looking at the pretty picture though, it’ll be okay.
