Over the past two decades, Blizzard Entertainment has had a tremendous impact on the world of games and global pop culture. From its humble beginnings as a three-person console-game development studio in 1991 to the creation of the blockbuster Warcraft®, StarCraft®, and Diablo® series, Blizzard has a history of crafting stunning worlds of science fiction and fantasy. The company’s distinctive gameplay and storytelling styles have captivated an international audience numbering in the tens of millions whose passion cannot be quelled. Twenty years after Blizzard opened its doors, the company’s World of Warcraft® boasts the title of the world’s most popular subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and the studio is widely recognized as one of the leaders in creatively driven game development. An epic volume of art and behind-the-scenes insights, The Art of Blizzard® celebrates the studio’s genesis by examining the creative forces behind these games and showcasing their artistry through more than 700 pieces of concept art, paintings, and sketches. Commentary on the art is provided by Blizzard Entertainment’s own Nick Carpenter, Sam Didier, and Chris Metzen, who’ve each played important roles in shaping Blizzard’s game universes over the years.
When you're a Frontier Corps Ranger in Sector 12 there's always plenty of work that needs to be done. In your role as soldier there are paramilitary groups to fight and alien agencies to fend off. As a scout and spy you need to stay alert for signs of attacks on human space. As an operative you must do whatever you can to persuade the alien governments of The Other Side to leave Frontier Corps alone. Fortunately Rev (sometimes called Red, Rubicon, Rab and other names he doesn't care to repeat, ) is good at multi-tasking. Especially because he has an additional duty- a secret mission from Frontier Corps. Recent events on the planet Acan have given him a potential lead, and he's determined not to let the trail slip away this time. He will need that kind of focus, because there's a new player in Sector 12, an anti-Ranger paramilitary group with powerful backers. They've just finished devastating the Rangers in Sector 13 and now they're looking for fresh victims and new victories.
