Gears Tactics, the turn-based tactics spinoff from the main Gears of War franchise, launched this week on PC, and in addition to the video game itself, a new art book covering the development process of characters, environments, and more from concept to completion titled Gears Tactics: The Art of the Game was also released. The 192-page hardcover art book looks incredible, and the good folks at Titan Books have provided ComicBook.com with a look at some of its beautiful innards.
If you're somehow not familiar, Gears Tactics takes place 12 years before the first Gears of War game, and tasks players with leading a group of survivors against the Locust Horde as they terrorize the planet Sera from underneath the ground. In addition to simply being for sale right now, it's also part of Xbox Game Pass for PC's beta.
You can check out the cover of the art book below:
