Publisher Untold Tales and developer The Brotherhood have confirmed that all PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions of the upcoming sci-fi adventure game BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION will come with a free 80+ page digital artbook plus the full soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, most notable for his works on DOOM, Prey and Wolfenstein.
To showcase some of the world and rich details in the game, that are also extensively covered in the artbook, the team have released 2 additional video assets to highlight what makes BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION tick.
First off, Creative Director Chris Bischoff collected some of his favorite cutscenes that he single-handedly created to bring people ever closer to the captivating African sci-fi world the team created.

“Whenever other developers ask us how we were able to justify the time and effort spent making these cutscenes for the game, I ask them ‘Do you remember the cutscenes in StarCraft?” and they immediately get it. I grew up playing that game and can remember every story scene to this day. They sucked you into the world even deeper or made the characters feel more tangible, and that’s exactly what I wanted to do here with BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION.”  Chris Bischoff, Creative Director, The Brotherhood

And finally, a behind-scenes video showcasing how the team used photogrammetry to build their vision of a sci-fi African apocalypse. Part of what makes BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION so special to the South African developers is how they were able to put actual pieces of Africa into the levels, art and characters themselves using this method.

BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION comes out on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on May 28th, 2021 and can be pre-order on Nintendo Switch for 10% off.
