Crafted to resemble a set of Abstergo case files, this immersive and interactive book promises a glimpse into the in-universe technology that allows characters to inhabit the lives of their ancestors - a cornerstone of the Assassin's Creed narrative. In addition to Abstergo research, data, scientific breakdowns, and schematics, the book also features artifacts that tie directly into the game's forays into history, scrapbooked as if discovered and preserved by Abstergo centuries later. In-depth and beautifully illustrated, the Assassin's Creed Handbook grants a never-before-seen look at the inner workings of the fictional corporation at the heart of the blockbuster franchise...

Assassin's Creed Unity: Abstergo Entertainment: Employee Handbook is a lovingly crafted coffee table edition that will take pride of place in any fan's home. First impressions are that this is a labour of love, with beautifully designed pages that incorporate tabs in order for it to appear more like a large file.

As you flick through the pages you'll also discover little elements that are slipped between the pages. These come in the form of detachable post-it notes; a fire damaged note; an envelope; and various other notes and posters. These little elements help to create a more interesting experience for the reader, as you never know what you're going to discover as you turn the pages.

The book acts as a great background to the universe the game is set in and will provide many hours of reading pleasure.
