I’m a sucker for game art. Either it be an artists own spin on a classic game or getting to see some production art prior to a game’s release. Thankfully, we’ll be seeing three books filled with the latter type of art from Bethesda games.
Partnering with Dark Horse Comics, Bethesda will be releasing three books for upcoming titles The Evil Within and Wolfenstein: The New Order, and the most recently published Dishonored. All three will bound in hardcover, so these books will be perfect for your coffee table. You know, if you like your coffee table books filled with dark imagery and violence.
The first to be released “The Art of Wolfenstein: The New Order” will be out May 14 in comic stores and in bookstores everywhere May 27. Readers will get 200 pages of development art, character design, settings and technology to look over of the latest game in the Wolfenstein series. If you can’t wait the two months there are several preview pages on Beethesda’s blog.
The other two books, “The Art of The Evil Within” and “Dishonored: The Dunwall Archives” will be released in August and November, respectively. I don’t know if I can wait the eight months for “Dishonored: The Dunwall Archives”, but it will be worth it to see the early artwork.
