Our prayers have been answered, a coloring book has finally been announced.

I repeat, this is not a joke, it's actually real. ;)

It's not a terrible idea, but they really should have gone with exclusive artwork specially designed for the book. It just doesn't look good when you take 3D render screenshots and turn them into cheap-looking vector replicates.

Someone's going to turn these into masterpieces one day.

As someone who cannot draw or paint to save his life, I am really looking forward to this :o

This stuff makes me embarrassed to be a fan.

Milking the franchise in general
Milking mobile games
Milking Pirate feature

Now a ****ing colouring book? Thought AC was for 18 and overs? What 18 and over wants to colour in a ****ing book? Double standards. Not to mention I cant swear here either.

adult coloring books are a thing now, and from what google tells me they are actually selling so no doubt ubisoft is getting into the craze while its hot

I know some of my friends who are Assassins (well sort of, if you think of it in the more traditional sense of "hashashin" at least) who would be all about this. :p

I usually don't bat an eye when it comes to weird merchandise, but I laughed a lot at this, a coloring book is the last thing I expected.

Still not as bad as AC Megabloks...

Man, I actually really want those.

Wish they'd gone all the way and just released a LEGO set, though.

You whine too much. "I don't like it so it's MILKING! MILKING!"

Just don't buy it.

Also, adults who color has been found to be extremely therapeutic. Maybe you should try it.

So many lines to stay inside of...all the lines...

Just wait until you see the AC Megabloks movie...

"I don't like it so it's milking", never said that, but nice assumption.

I don't need to colour books to have a therapeutic effect. Bit rude of you isn't it?

A coloring book may not be a bad idea...

People can get creative with the color combinations of the outfit :)

Eh, looks awful and embarrassing.

First kiddie books with knock off font in the title, now this

Looks pretty cool. I would need one that is allready filled in though as I'm not the greatest artist.

The megablocks are just too cute lol!

Don't understand the hate this gets, because I personally loved Mandalas, a sort of coloring book, as a child and as a fan of the franchise that is not very adept at art I can safely colour the book and get a pretty picture while feeling as if I have achieved something!

I think it would be a lot more awesome if these coloring maps were released digitally, as PSDs perhaps where the lines are separate from the white background and you can color them in Photoshop and the likes. Now that would be a lot more fun and easier for a lot of people. And of course, a lot more efficient since no page will be ruined.

Colour books are indeed a thing now, and it's actually quite relaxing. Thanks for your feedback about this one, we'll forward them to the licensing team :)

That could be cool idea, a virtual colour book ^^

Thanks!

I remember how I used to create my own back during the days of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness. I'd load a render, draw lines around the face and edges..etc. and then take the lines and start coloring it on my own. It was really fun and easy :D

Also, if anyone is really into this idea, you can google "Assassins Creed coloring pages" and print off some fan made stuff right now. Not that I encourage doing this instead of buying the official book, of course. :p
