The release of Halo 4 is coinciding with Titan Books' new hardcover taking a look at 343 Industries' first original foray into the universe of the Master Chief. Awakening: The Art of Halo 4 provides the skinny on the visual genesis of the characters, weapons, vehicles, and environments of the shooter, and we've got a trio of exclusives from the book for you to check out.
Thankfully, there's nothing here that could in any way constitute a spoiler, but it should give you a rough sense of how environments like the planet Requiem or the interior of the UNSC Infinity were envisioned by the artists at 343.
Awakening: The Art of Halo 4 is available now in hardcover from Titan Books.
