Killzone Visual Design – Art Book

Owee, we received something pretty sweet today!

Cook & Becker came by and dropped off a couple of Killzone Coffee Table Art Books!

In celebration of Killzone’s 15th year anniversary, the Dutch game developer Guerilla Games teamed up with art dealers Cook & Becker, to create a coffee table book commemorating the visual design of the Killzone games.

It’s a beaut! over 200 pages of concept art, ranging from character designs of the Helghast, weaponry, in game brands and breath taking scenery art

Compilers Arjan Terpstra and Cook & Becker had full and unlimited access to the image archives of Guerilla. From the early hand drawn concepts art used for Killzone 1 all the way to jaw dropping in-game renders from their latest Killzone Shadow Fall.

Next time you hit the hotel, make sure you browse through this book in our lobby with a gin & tonic or a nice cold one in your hand.

We did not spend our Saturday evenings painting Warhammer and had plenty of dates to choose for prom. But you know the ways of the Lord (of the rings) are mysterious and so fast forward 15 years and here we are, immersed in the world of video games with little practical knowledge but an enthusiasm as big as Jabba The Hutt´s appetite. Oh, the twists and turns of life… Anyways, this year we decided that who better than us, Jens and Paz, the least experienced..

The Arcade: First Contact. Haaaaave you met Lesley?

It’s a little family what we have going on here at The Arcade. And because we want you to get to know us better, we decided to feature our staff members in a series called “The Arcade: First Contact”.
