VIDEO GAME TIE IN: The Art of Battlefield 4 - Martin Robinson

Release Date: 01/11/13
Publisher:  Titan


One of the most popular first-person-shooter franchises of all time, the critically and commercially acclaimed Battlefield series has sold over 27 million copies worldwide and been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades. The Art of Battlefield 4 will give readers an in-depth look at EA's new game, featuring exclusive concept art and detailed creator commentary throughout.


Another VG Artbook tie in and whilst it may come across as a strange thing to have two so close together, the various differences between the two titles really do go to show how important the preplanning as well as concept pieces are to the inspiration of the programmers and designers.

Within this book is a lot of the predesign as well as some of the in game pieces that have gone on to help make this franchise one of the best known battlefield games out there. Its easy to reference, has some wonderful commentary alongside showing pieces that the reader will sit back and see how the influences have played out. A great addition to any fans shelf and with luck something that will get the recognition it deserves.
