Assassin’s Creed fans will delight in this encompassing history of the series.

Assassin’s Creed, as a series, has done some incredible things with history. With its own unique blend of the past as it was, and the past as it is re-imagined, it provides an irresistible mix of fantasy and history that keeps gamers coming back for more. In Assassin’s Creed: The Complete Visual History, author Matthew Miller offers a comprehensive look at the series as a whole, including tons of awe-inspiring artwork that is well served by the size and quality of the book.

Though this book is billed as a visual history, there is much more to it than aesthetics (although those are as impressive as you’d expect). The author has taken great pains to describe and discuss the series as a whole, including memorable characters and locations. Interviews with developers and artists at Ubisoft have offered an inside look at both how various aspects of the series were initially visualized, as well as how and why changes were made during production. Whether you’re new to the series, or have played every game religiously, you’ll learn a lot about Assassin’s Creed within the pages of this book.

No visual history would be complete without a whole lot of incredible art, and Assassin’s Creed: The Visual History has that in spades. It’s a very large book, and that size gives the artwork space to really shine. All of the pages are in vivid full color, with a glossy shine and thick pages that should hold up well to repeated readings. The artwork itself features everything from never-before seen concept art to impressively detailed character art, to an original cover created by artists at Ubisoft. From Ezio and Altair to Shao Jun, and Venice to the open seas, Assassin’s Creed: The Visual History pays homage to a beloved series in the best way possible – by highlighting stunning images and memorable moments that will have fans happy read after read.
