Hello El Moochadores! Here’s a scene for you: It was early yesterday morning when you suddenly woke up and scurried out your bedroom to the place (where ever it may be in your house) where a Christmas tree sat with it’s base brimming with bright and shiny packages. Most of which had your name on them and, sure, you’re in your thirties and most of this is stuff you bought (and wrapped) for yourself, but none the less you pounced on this over indulgent bounty of store bought goods like a hungry velociraptor on a crane lifted cow. The paper flew and soon after the carnage had ceased you uncovered your copy of Battlefield 4 and the day seemed almost complete. Almost! But it’s not complete yet because you forgot to get The Art of Battlefield 4! “The ultimate gallery of the latest game in the critically and commercially acclaimed Battlefield series!” Published by the fine folks who brought you Battlefield, DICE and Titan Books, The Art of Battlefield 4 is chuck full of concept art, character models, original sketches, and artist commentary! Here’s the synopsis:
The Art of Battlefield 4 will give readers an in-depth look at DICE’s enormously anticipated action-packed new game, featuring exclusive concept and development art, as well as detailed creator insights and commentary throughout, showcasing the chaos and the carnage of war on virtual front lines.
If your a fan of the Battlefield series, this is something you’re going to want to add to your collection. According to the book they used over 1500 pieces of concept art to develop the game, the best of which is beautifully laid out in this hard cover edition. However, the book doesn’t just cover the concept art for the game, but also describes the inception and development. It also elaborates on many of the design choices made for the characters, equipment, and landscapes of the game.
So, maybe you’re a hardcore gamer, a budding game developer, or maybe just a guy who likes big books with pretty pictures (I’d be the latter), what ever the case may be, the Art of Battlefield 4 is something you’re going to want to add to your collection. So, go return that sweater mom got you, but you know your never going to wear, and go get a copy for yourself.
The Art of Battlefield 4 can be found in all major bookstores or you can get it at Titan Books online store! I’ve posted a few sample images below. Unfortunately my scanner is now officially dead, so I had to pull these images from the web. Which, is really awful, since none of the other sites pulled the best images from the book. Oh, well. Just remember there’s way more under the cover.
