BioWare has spent 25 years building a reputation for crafting high-quality video games with immersive, lore-heavy worlds. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work behind the scenes and bring those epic games to life, Dark Horse Comics has just the book for you.

Dark Horse is releasing a new hardcover artbook called BioWare: Stories and Secrets From 25 Years of Game Development. As the name suggests, this book gives fans a closer look at the company’s inner workings and the fascinating behind-the-scenes stories that arose out of modern classics like Mass Effect and Knights of the Old Republic. Plus, you can expect a copious amount of sketches and concept art and even glimpses of BioWare games that never saw the light of day.

See what it took to make games in those wild early days. Pore over details of secret, cancelled projects.

BioWare: Stories and Secrets From 25 Years of Game Development is priced at $49.99 and is scheduled for release on November 11, 2020.

Currently, BioWare is crafting some major changes to its live-service shooter Anthem, with the update dubbed “Anthem Next.” We also know the developer is one of many EA-owned studios working on next-gen projects for the PS5 and Xbox Series X. One of those projects could even be the rumored Knights of the Old Republic remake, which will reportedly overhaul the game’s story to fit within the context of Disney’s Star Wars timeline.
