Paris 1789, The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestones streets run red with the blood of the commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation and transform him into a true Master Assassin...

The Art of Assassin's Creed Unity (hardback, 192 pages) is a lavish, coffee table edition that collects together early sketch work, more never-before-seen concept art than you can shake a stick at, and engaging commentary from the game's creators.

Obviously, this is only likely to appeal to those that love the game, but for that target market, this is a dream of a book. It will make you see the game with a new found respect as you soak up the attention to detail and elements that were rejected.

This is a picture heavy collection, but the text is used to offer a little more background for fans.

Fans of the game will cherish this lovingly crafted book.
