Halo 4 tie-in for Titan

Titan Books has acquired Awakening: The Art of Halo 4, which promises “never-before-seen” concept art from the new instalment in the video game franchise.

Commissioning editor Laura Price bought exclusive worldwide rights directly from Microsoft. The title will be written by gaming journalist Paul Davies.

Awakening, lined up for November 2012, will provide a detailed look at the art created specifically for Halo 4, including characters, weapons, vehicles and environments.

Price said: “Halo art is simply stunning and Halo 4 has some of the most powerful and beautiful concept art I’ve ever seen. Halo is the godfather of gaming and we’re delighted to be involved with the new release.”
