A pre-order bonus art book was announced for the action RPG Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga for Xbox 360. Fans who reserve the game at participating retailers will receive The Art of Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga, a 52-page, full color art book (7.5″ wide x 5.25″ tall) featuring spectacular creature and world designs from the game.
“The war-torn land of Rivellon is, despite the bitter conflict that troubles it, a beautiful place,” commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus. “It is filled with the most imaginative, wondrous kinds of characters, creatures, and monsters. As we explored the beautiful art created by Larian Studios in the process of realizing Divinity II, we arrived at the inescapable conclusion that a premium collection of the various sketches, renders, and designs from the game, along with comments from the artists themselves, would be the perfect pre-order reward for fans. And for folks who’ve received one of our art books in the past, they know we take these things rather seriously,” Jabbari added, likely prompted by stern glances from the Atlus design team.
“One of the aspects of Divinity II we are most proud of and most eager to share with our fans is the painstaking effort taken by our artists and designers to realize a living, breathing Rivellon to explore and quest in,” commented Benoit Louzas, Producer at Larian Studios. “As many reviewers and fans have noted, one of the game’s biggest strengths is the originality of its game world, the interesting designs of its characters, monsters, and items, and its many beautiful landscapes and vistas. We are very excited that fans who pre-order the North American verstion of Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga for Xbox 360 system will receive a one-of-a-kind collectible art book featuring not only these renders and sketches, but also comments and thoughts from the artists themselves.”
Adding even more appeal is the addition of a soundtrack CD overflowing with music from the game’s heroic fantasy score, included free inside every launch copy of the game.
The complete package offers tremendous value to the action RPG gamer: both the art book and soundtrack CD, in addition to the game’s 100+ hours of deep, exciting gameplay, can be had for the affordable MSRP of only $39.99!
