Guerrilla Announces Killzone Visual Design Book

Guerrilla is proud to announce KILLZONE VISUAL DESIGN, a comprehensive art book celebrating the 15-year visual design history of the Killzone series. Published by the digital art experts at Cook & Becker, this impressive tome is filled with lavish full-color spreads and insightful commentary from Guerrilla’s own visual design artists and art directors.

KILLZONE VISUAL DESIGN is exactly the sort of art book we’ve dreamed of releasing since the early days of Killzone 1 development. Even though our studio has grown significantly over the years – Guerrilla now numbers 250 developers, working on two brand-new IPs in two different locations – one thing has never changed: our characteristic approach to visual design.

The objects and architecture found in KILLZONE VISUAL DESIGN were rarely designed for looks first and then retrofitted with functionality later. Instead, our visual design team thoroughly researched the role of proposed game objects and structures, cross-referencing real-world technologies and architecture with similar functions in order to create a new design that would fit in the Killzone game world.

This approach has resulted in a game world with a real sense of presence, coherence and purpose; one that hints at a long and often troubled history. KILLZONE VISUAL DESIGN explores the richness of this game world in colorful detail, aided by the meticulous curation and research of authors Maarten Brands and Arjan Terpstra.

Weighing in at just over 200 pages, KILLZONE VISUAL DESIGN is a must-have for Killzone fans and futuristic design aficionados alike. The book is slated for a 1st February 2016 release date, but you can pre-order your copy from the PlayStation Gear store today!
