The Art Of Uncharted 2 Kicks Off New Publishing Series
Last year's super special "Fortune Hunter Edition" was a very hot item for collectors and now, Naughty Dog wants to tempt you yet again.
Ballistic Publishing is starting a new "Art of the Game" series of art books, and they figured the very first offering should be dedicated to the impressive artistry of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. This 272-page book "showcases the amazing unseen art and ideas" that made the game so popular amongst critics and fans alike; it features "concept art, character studies, environment art, character modeling, game art, cinematics, motion-capture, animation, and effects." What isn't in this book?! It will be available in three separate editions: the standard soft-cover edition for $65.00, the Special Edition for $129.00 and the Limited Folio Edition for a cool $300.00. All those who purchase the latter two editions will also receive a free 15-minute walkthrough video of three Uncharted 2 concept pieces by Naughty Dog Art Director Robh Ruppel and Concept Artist Andrew Kim. The first 300 customers who buy the soft-cover edition will also get this free of charge. So if you're quick, you can nab it.
The true fans will go for one of these, right? And by the way, I happen to have that aforementioned Fortune Hunter Edition...just thought I'd mention it. ;)
