Awakening: The Art of Halo 4

Being a big Xbox gamer and Halo “fanboy,” I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this new art book from Titan Books titled Awakening: The Art of Halo 4. Like many Halo fans, I was a little weary of 343 Industries taking over the Halo franchise from Bungie.  Though as the promotions started, then watching the exciting web series Halo 4:  Forward Unto Dawn, and seeing the game being released to great reviews, my fears were alleviated.

This hardbound collection has 192 pages chock-full of incredible goodies that any Halo diehard will enjoy.  The commentaries are from the 343 Industries’ art team (e.g., art director, game designer) and they are short and concise.  The main focus of this book is definitely the art and you will see environment sketches, character model drawings, concept art of weapons, vehicles, and Spartans, plus everything else in this new Halo 4 universe.

Like most Halo fans, we collect a lot of merchandise from this universe – Mega Bloks toys, action figures, DVDs, novels, comics, and now you can add this art book to your library.  If you’re an artist or a creative maniac, this makes for great reference material and/or a possible source of inspiration.  More importantly, Awakening: The Art of Halo 4 is a must-have gift for any Halo die-hard.
