Art of Assassin’s Creed 3 Book Coming in October

Assassin's Creed 3 - HuntingApparently, all gamers are on the warpath looking for this guy.

Art book will have concept art, commentary, and more!

The Assassin’s Creed 3 news just keeps on comin’. IGN reports that publisher Titan Books is releasing a lovely hardcover book: The Art of Assassin’s Creed III.

Featuring brand new concept art and artists’ commentary about the pieces, the 144-paged book comes out on October 30th, the same day as the game.

“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,” says senior commissioning editor Laura Price. “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.”

I’d put this on my coffee table, next to the bowl of candy and conveniently-placed hidden blade.

You can nab this book for $29.99… though I kinda wonder why they don’t just include it with the newly-revealed Limited Edition?

Anyhoo, I’m anxious to see what kind of art is included. If you haven’t seen any of Assassin’s Creed 3’s concept art before, check out VSOG Buddy Austin’s post on his blog, Chimeric Concepts. To think that there’s more art like that that we haven’t even see before… *sqees with excitement*

In other Assassin-y news, there’s a new trailer out today. And with that, I wish all my American peeps a happy and safe 4th of July 🙂
