Assassin’s Creed Origins is big and it’s beautiful. Our reviewer Colin Campbell called it “a work of art.”

The book includes concept art, like the above sketch, as well as full paintings and 3D renders of the world of Assassin’s Creed Origins.

Assassin’s Creed Origins launched Oct. 27. You can read our review, which uses words like “amaranth” freely. That’s when you know you’ve got a pretty game on your hands.
