Overview

An exclusive art book published to coincide with the much-anticipated release of Assassin's Creed III.

Initially launched in 2007, the first four Assassin's Creed games have sold more than 38 million units worldwide, and the franchise is now established as one of the best-selling series ever. Recognized for having some of the richest, most-engrossing art and storytelling in the industry, Assassin's Creed transcends video games, branching out into other entertainment experiences including comic books, Facebook games, novels, short films and more.

Assassin's Creed III sees the franchise step into a brand new era, with a new assassin in a revolutionary world. With intricately detailed environments and finely-honed and evocative historical reimaginings, this is a world into which you can immerse yourself and feel the echoes of the past come to life. Continuing in the footsteps of this already world-renowned franchise, Assassin's Creed III promises to be the biggest and best yet.

Highlights in the game, and in the book, include new interactive cityscapes, frozen winter landscapes, threats from the natural world, weather systems that affect gameplay, and a wholly new environment for any Assassin so far - all stunningly and historically-correctly recreated by the Ubisoft studio.

From the Publisher
“Titan doesn't scrimp on quality and these books are gorgeous! All serious fans of these games are going to want them.” – Library Journal

“This art book will be the highlight of my coffee table.” – Unfinished Man

“Another layer to an already engaging game.” – Pixelitis

“This truly is an art lover’s book. If you had ever shown interest in the art of video games, or even questioned whether video games were art to begin with, I strongly recommend to read this book. It will change your mind. It is a book of beautiful imagery and shows the longs steps it took to bring this art to reality.” – Gaming Truth

“Both of which turned out to be absolutely spectacular – and both of which included literally dozens of artwork that I would enlarge and proudly frame and hang in my home in an instant (that is, is my wife let me). The artwork featured in these books will blow you away. In a word: mesmerizing.” – Barnes & Nobles

“One of the best art books for a video game that I have ever seen.” “5 out of 5 stars.” – Cybertron Reviews

This book is hard cover, but it comes with a dust jacket, which initially I was not too enthusiastic about. However, the matte texture on the dust jacket and the glazed emblem on the book itself are nice touches. Overall, I highly recommend this art book. Lots of beautiful concept art from the landscape, weapon, and character designs, and the text provides a nice follow-along. The pages are glossy, and it's quite a big book-- if you have the collector's edition game guide, this book is at least an inch longer and taller. Definitely a must have for AC Art enthusiasts!
