...is really well done.

I'm referring to the art book that comes bundled with the strategy guide. Given the depth of the game, and sheer size, I thought the guide would save countless hours of surfing once the game is out. I thought the art book would just be a nice bonus. However, it is worth something in and of itself. It has absolutely amazing art, and a ton of details about the game from designers, producers, artist...you name it.

It's something to pick up if you enjoy sitting back with a fire going and appreciating the art that goes into a title like this.

do you get it when you pickup your copy of the game, or do they give it to you when you pay the 5-10 dollars to preorder? because i never got anything http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Oh man, I hope not. This was never mentioned to me, and I just spent $35 the other day at Best Buy to purchase it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

I purchased this today and won't open it until I get the game. However, I asked countless GS's and they were never aware of any pre-order promo with the game. If this is indeed the free artbook - it's an amazing deal.

Nah, i think the Strategy guide only comes with the LE.

Ya'll are confused. There is a

1. Strategy guide - 380ish pages, HUGE. I haven't looked at it, nor will until I'm well entrenched into the game.

2. A mini art book that comes with a pre-order. I haven't gotten this yet, but was told by the manager at GameSpot (who seemed to be more-than-typically in the know) was rather insubstantial. That's not necessarily suprising for something free.

3. A LE artbook - what I described in the original post. It is not free, but rather bundled at GameSpot with the strategy guide (see #1).

It seems like there are 3 different art books...

1. Free with pre-order (probably not very big)

2. Bundled with Strategy guide (apparently huge)

3. Bundled with Limited Edition (unknown size)

The special edition artbook or the preorder one Im not %100 if there is a difference is a lot smaller then the actual Assasssin's Creed artbook you can buy separately.

There is a packaged bundle that comes with a nice quality artbook hardback with a cover, the stradegy guide and the artbook thats in the collectors edtition.

I was wondering if te artbook is on a first come, first serve basis for pre-orders. Or, if it's for every single pre-order. I just know when I get there, they're run out either way...

Is it worth it to buy the mini-GS/EB pre-order artbook if you have the strategy guide/artbook combo?

Do we get the art book free with pre-order in Canada as well?
