The Art of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves™

I don't think we could be more excited to announce our newest book in our newest series. The Art of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves is the first book in our Art of the Game series, and what a way to start the series. The overwhelming choice for Game of the Year from 33 different outlets, Naughty Dog's instant classic on the PlayStation® 3 has set a new standard for games in visuals, story, performance and action.

Working directly with the Naughty Dog creative team to sift through the mountain of art used to create UNCHARTED 2, The Art of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves provides an amazing snapshot of the creation of the game. The book is Ballistic Publishing’s biggest book at 272 pages and reveals hundreds of pieces of unseen art not available outside of the Naughty Dog team.

The book starts with the concept art for both characters and environments, showing all of the main characters and levels in over 200 pages. Moving beyond a standard concept art book, we also feature the work of the character modeling team, the production art team, the motion-capture and cinematics team, and finally the effects team. Combined, all these chapters show how the entire team contribute to the final game.
