Beautiful Desolation: digital artbook and full soundtrack included with all versions, latest videos (cinematic reel, Behind the Scenes video)

Untold Tales have announced that all versions of Beautiful Desolation will include two neat extras:

  • 80+ page digital artbook
  • full soundtrack (composed by Mick Gordon of DOOM, Prey, and Wolfenstein fame)

Also, they have shared not one, but two new videos for the game. The first is a cinematic reel, giving players a taste of the cutscenes:

Watch a cinematic highlight reel to get a small taste of what you’ll experience in the game.

“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

The second video is a Behind the Scenes video focusing on Photogrammetry:

Watch a behind-the-scenes video to show you who actual bits of Africa were incorporated into making the game come to life.

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 using this method.

Beautiful Desolation (Switch – eShop) comes out on May 28th in Europe and North America.
