The Art of Battlefield 4 from Titan Books and author Martin Robinson, an award winning journalist and Features Editor and Eurogamer, is filled with 192 pages of art, sketches, ideas and concepts straight from the “War Room” deep inside DICE’s headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, in this small conference room filled with whiteboard ideas, scribbles, names, pictures, maps, and glass walls covered in concept art, is where Battlefield 4 was born.

With the Art of Battlefield 4, you’ll be able to take a look into the minds at DICE and see for yourself how Battlefield 4 shaped up from inception to reception with a collection of images that helped mold the game into what it is today. See character models before their digitalization and learn about the environments in which both Battlefield 4’s single player campaign and multiplayer offerings take place. Each page is filled with gorgeous, full-page art and blurbs about the story and level design.
