The Art Of Death Stranding Is As Beautiful As It Is Morbid
Given how absolutely beautiful of a game Death Stranding turned out to be, an art book celebrating the latest release by Hideo Kojima was bound to happen at some point. Thankfully, it has, as The Art of Death Stranding is now available for purchase featuring hundreds of pages chock-full of artwork – including early and unused concept art – from the hit game.
“The Art of Death Stranding is packed with hundreds of pieces of concept art for the characters, equipment, locations and creatures featured in the game,” the official description by Titan Books reads, “as well as early and unused concepts, including artwork by acclaimed artist Yoji Shinkawa.” The folks over at ComicBook snagged a sneak peek at some of the artwork, which can be seen below:
“Color variation concepts”
“Tests were drafted to determine the color palette for Amelie’s character”
“Landscape of Edge Knot City seen from the Tar Belt”
“Early sketches of the titan-type BT”
“Unused concept for stillmothers”
“Close to final concepts for the interiors of the city”
Here’s the description of The Art of Death Stranding from Titan Books:
“After the collapse of civilization, Sam Bridges must journey across a ravaged landscape crawling with otherworldly threats to save mankind from the brink of extinction. From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima comes an all-new, genre-defying experience for the PlayStation®4 system. In the near future, mysterious explosions have rocked the planet, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With spectral creatures plaguing the landscape, and the planet on the verge of a mass extinction, it’s up to Sam Bridges to journey across the ravaged continent and save mankind from impending annihilation.
The Art of Death Stranding is now available for purchase through Amazon for $33.99. At the time of publishing they are currently out of stock, though it will be delivered when available.
