Dishonored 2: Dark Horse Art Book and Fan Art Contest Announced

At long last, Arkane Studios has announced a second art book for Dishonored, which is slated to release in Fall 2018. The book will be titled “Dishonored 2: Dark Horse” and will release on September 26, 2018. The book will contain art from the Dishonored series and will include info on the game’s origins, art direction, and creation process.

The Dark Horse art book will be available to purchase on November 1st, 2016 for $29.99. The book contains over 100 pieces of art by some of the most renowned artists in the industry. The art book is being produced exclusively for Dishonored 2 by Dark Horse Comics and will be released in comic and book formats.

As a fan of Dishonored, I was delighted to discover that the next installment in the beloved game franchise would be coming to the next generation of platforms. But I was also dismayed when I saw the art book being released together with the game. In a time where there are so many great artists, why would you limit your own fan art to not be in print?  This is for the fans, so that we can enjoy modern art in the game we love.
