I’m looking at the BEYOND artwork I’ve seen around and I’m wondering if it holds some clues about the third part of the Beyond update.
The NEXT artwork showed a number of the features which ended up coming as part of the update, so I thought maybe BEYOND is the same.
The first thing I noticed is the red suited player. The NEXT artwork showed an orange, yellow, green and blue player model, so who is this red suited figure? Also, the red suited figure is looking at the group from NEXT, like he’s separate… an other - an agent of the Atlas.
Also the colour red is associated with the Atlas, and this connection between the figure in red and the Atlas is only made stronger by the fact that the Atlas is reflected in the visor.
Also the reflection of Atlas shows that the Atlas is looking more angry with its red ring glowing much more obviously and ominously than the NEXT artwork.
Finally, the environment behind the red figure is much more hostile and barren looking than the brightly coloured, rich environments of previous artwork.
What do you think?
