One of THE most anticipated games for Xbox ONE is Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming mech masterpiece, “Titanfall.” Titan Books, (hmmmm….that seems oddly apropro) has just released a sensational book by Andy McVittie called “The Art Of Titanfall” which brilliantly gives fans the inside look at the game that everyone have been waiting for.
Here is the official synopsis from Titan Books: The Art of Titanfall will take readers on an in-depth, no-holds barred look at Respawn Entertainment’s hugely anticipated multiplayer shooter, featuring exclusive concept and development art, as well as detailed creator insights and commentary throughout, showcasing the all-out warfare between the agile pilots and lethal Titans of the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation and the Frontier militia, as well as the war-torn science fiction battlefields found within the game.
The book is 192 pages of geek-tastic imagery and concept art that is beautifully presented in a hardcover, oversized book (9″ X 11 1/8″), worthy of any fan’s bookshelf. The book is broken down into 4 distinct sections:
Titans & Pilots – This is where they give us detailed looks at the Titans – Orge, Atlas, and Stryder as well as the various Characters – Militia, IMC, Pilots, Spectres, Rebels, and Grunts. We even get a quick look at the creatures from the game. When talking about the Pilots gear, artist Robb Shoberg admits, “The helmet design was loosely inspired by Boba Fett.”
Vehicles, Weapons & Tech – Here we get a look at the spacecrafts, (some of which are very reminiscent of the old animated series Star Blazers, anyone else remember that one?) Space freighters and fighters varying in size to relatively small to massively gargantuan in size are depicted. Vehicles like the “Crow,” “Hornet” and the “Goblin Dropship“ aaaaaalmost seen possible now but they are futuristic enough to put them just out of reach. We also get a look at some assault cars, tanks, trucks, construction and commercial vehicles. The weapons and tech portion gives us a peek at what we will be using during the carnage of the game. This is easily our favorite section of the book.
Locations – As you can guess, this one gives us a detailed look at the 12 environments/ battlefields, locations within the game. We start off with: Training Ground and go to Angel City, Outpost 207, Fracture, Demeter, Colony, Boneyard, Corporate, Overlook, Nexus, Airbase and Lagoon. It’s pretty hard to pick a favorite because each one is awesome in its own right but for the sake of picking one, I’d say that Airbase was the favorite.
Graphics & Modeling – The maquettes in this section SCREAMED 3A Toys and I’m hoping that they get to do a few. Their work is incredible and would be a perfect match for the Titanfall universe.
This book is a must have for fans of the video game or for those that simply crave concept art. “The Art Of Titanfall” is available now and can be purchased HERE. The game will be taking over all our free time when it launches on March 11th. It can be preordered HERE. Follow Titan Books on TWITTER for updates on new releases.
