If you already know that you won’t be able to get enough of Assassin’s Creed then be sure to look out for Titan Books’, “The Art of Assassin’s Creed III”, which will be hitting stores alongside the release of the game on October 30 for $29.99. The book will be including exclusive new concept art along with commentaries from the game’s artists. With 144 pages of new artwork, the book will definitely be something to watch out for if you’re an art book collector.
If the concept art that Ubisoft has already released is just the beginning, then surely this will include some beautiful pieces from the artistic team.
The senior commissioning editor Laura Price had this to say about the Assassin’s Creed art book:
“Assassin’s Creed is rightly considered one of the most visually exciting games, and the concept art for Assassin’s Creed III is no exception. The new era and the new assassin are incredibly exciting and the sheer beauty of the art is extraordinary. Assassin’s Creed III promises to be the biggest and best yet and we’re delighted to be involved.”
There’s really no denying that Assassin’s Creed 3 is looking to be a step in the right direction for the continuation of the series. Ubisoft is delivering fans a brand new frontier to explore, improved combat dynamics, and a beautiful artistic direction. The only questions that will remain once the game launches, and the dust finally settles, is where Ubisoft can possibly take the franchise next.
Please, don’t let it be space. Although the prospect of planetary leaps of faith are enticing.
