Red Dead Redemption II Art Book Leaked
Red Dead Redemption II is hands-down a highly-anticipated sequel, a Western action-adventure game with a compelling story to boot. Rockstar San Diego outdid themselves with the original and fans expect the same level of epic storyline and gameplay in an equally vast world. Of course, the style that the Red Dead Redemption series is known for is on a level all its own, so art book collectors will be happy to know that there’s one in the making.
Based on a premature leak on Amazon, there’s little doubt that one is heading the community’s way. In fact, the listing is still available to view, but most of the teaser information has been removed. Well, not before hawk-eyed fans managed a screenshot beforehand.
Based on the now removed summary and the listing that remains, Rockstar has a few details to polish before they make the official announcement. Then again, even though the leak was revealed on Amazon, there’s no guarantee this is real news, even if the developer has yet to issue a take-down of the listing. For those hopeful, the tentative release date for the Red Dead Redemption II art book is slated for October 30th, 2018. This is around the same time the sequel is anticipated as well.
The summary for the art book reads as follows:
Makers of the groundbreaking Grand Theft auto series, award-winning Bully, Max Payne, L.A.A Noire, and many others, Rockstar Games crafted for Red Dead Redemption II the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight, and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America at the turn of the twentieth century in order to survive.
The Art of Red Dead Redemption II is the official visual companion to Rockstar Games’ highly anticipated game release, and is a peek behind the curtain of Rockstar Games and its intensely guarded approach to the creation of the lust, old West open-world gameplay. A first for this secretive company, Rockstar Games has released storyboards and behind-the-scenes inner workings of the game’s creation, with a mixed of detailed original art, concept, story, and character studies, sketches, and actual screengrabs of the end result that led to the creation of this spectacular game. The Art of Red dead Redemption II is equal parts a collection of behind-the-scenes art of this epic adventure and a pictorial love letter to the Western genre, and Red Dead Redemption II is sure to captive both a new gaming audience and devoted fans of Rockstar.”
