We all know that some of the best artists in the world work in the video games industry. In fact, I saw a recent Reddit thread where people were excited about the incredible graphics in Back 4 Blood. (SteelBook version now available for preorder exclusively at Best Buy. Ultimate Edition launches Oct 8, 2021. Standard Edition launches Oct 12, 2021.). Also, the two metal prints shown above have garnered considerable interest from enthusiasts. Therefore, I am really happy to announce that Best Buy has been asked to give some away in this contest!
Bring on the Back 4 Blood zombie apocalypse!
We have to work together to survive! That’s the general idea of this cooperative first person shooter from the creators of the hugely popular Left 4 Dead. Play with up to three friends in online cooperative mode to defeat the once-human hosts of a deadly parasite: the Ridden. Or play PvP (Player vs Player) in Swarm Mode with up to seven other players. We’ll have a full review of the game on the Best Buy Blog after it’s released, but for now you can learn more about the game from Matthew Rondina’s descriptive preview article on the blog.
Back 4 Blood comes out on October 12th but if you can’t wait to play, the Ultimate Edition launches on October 8th and Best Buy will have exclusive SteelBook versions of the game for Xbox and PlayStation. There are many people who collect SteelBooks and Best Buy is one of the best places to find a huge range of them for both games and movies. To celebrate the release of the game on SteelBook, we are giving away ten pairs of metal Back 4 Blood prints created by ICONART™.
Great games often begin with great artists
Gaming can be graphic: as the images above clearly show. These images not only help tell the story, but they draw us into the whole gaming experience, helping us buy into the narrative so we compete at our best. You’ve likely played many games in amazement of the detailed backgrounds, the tight integration of image and story, and the artistic talent necessary to make the game come alive. Each explosion, each spine-tingling suspense filled dark room, not to mention the originality of the characters themselves would not be as effective without the work of artists like those who worked on Back 4 Blood. This contest gives you the opportunity to own a unique piece of gaming history from the makers of the game and from ICONART™.
