Developer Sean Murray from Hello Games has been working alongside Dave Gibbons (Co-Creator of Watchmen and Kingsman), James Swallow (Mass Effect, Star Wars) and famous sci-fi book cover artist Angus McKie to create a comic book based in the game’s universe.

The Limited Edition also includes a unique artwork of the Atlas, and a dynamic theme by Mr Div. While the standard edition set will cost gamers $99.95, the limited edition set is a little bit pricier at $114.95.
