Book Description

29 Oct 2013
“This guide is quite simply exceptional. To have synthesized Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag into this single volume is one remarkable achievement. It is the result of a resolute collaboration between Piggyback and the Ubisoft development teams, an association initiated by the release of Assassin’s Creed II. Everything you need is in here: the settings, the intrigue, the missions and an in-depth explanation of all game systems, beautifully laid out with tons of concept art. Having read this, I believe you will know as much about the game as we do, if not more.”

Jean Guesdon
Creative Director, Assassin’s Creed IV

5.0 out of 5 stars Fully illustrated guide, worth the RRP 25 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a fully illustrated guide to help you get 100% synchronisation "Single Player" in Assassin's Creed Black Flag. Then look no further as this guide covers all levels including side missions which to be honest... not all guides will include side missions as standard. The book covers all platforms XBOX 360 PS3 WII U including "Next Gen" XBOX ONE and PLAYSTATION 4 including PC. It comes with "Multilayer" guide and a poster size map of the Caribbean which belive me the map will come in handy when you need guidence if you get lost. The book has some amazing illustrations and concept art at the rear of the book. One tiny warning...! This book is thick and quite heavy. When it arrived by post I thought a brick had dropped through my letterbox.

I would recommend you buy this guide without hesitation, and believe me when I say thatyou won't be disappointed. It is worth the RRP £14.99 and/or any sales offers on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't set sail without it! 6 Dec 2013
I can really only echo the praise other reviewers have left for this book: this is a truly fantastic game guide.

My experience with Game Guides is pretty limited and mostly restricted to those offered by Prima, but Piggyback have won a loyal fan here. They just seem to do everything that bit better.

Initial impressions are great. This softback edition is thick and heavy but has a solid binding and the print quality is exemplary throughout, with a nice few glossy flourishes adorning the cover. More importantly there's a thorough Contents list front-and-center that points you in the right direction no matter what element of the game you're looking to master. From the off, you can skip straight to the parts of the book that help with the campaign, the side quests or the Multiplayer, with differing sections under each heading to cover every conceivable question you'd have regarding the game. There's also a brilliant Index at the back where you can even find the game's many islands/sequences all listed by name; that's so important for a big open-world guide like this, but it's a feature that's not always included in a lot of similar Game Guides.

And when you get to the bit you want...heaven. It's written extremely well with some foolproof screenshots overlaid with simple arrows and other indicators which show you the best way to achieve your given goals. This approach extends to not only the main campaign 'sequences' but also the various side quests and collectibles. It seems like every island in the game, no matter how small, comes represented here with it's own little map that offers useful hints and tips on exactly how to nab that elusive Shanty or Animus Fragment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 11 Jan 2014
By Bronn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having bought most of the previous AC guides I know what to expect. As usual the Black Flag
guide delivers with really detailed sections on everything from the campaign to the multiplayer
to extras concerning the greater AC story and future for the franchise.

Black Flag is huge and there are a ton of collectibles so it felt like out of all the AC games this
was the one where I needed the guide the most, and it did not fail in any way literally covering
EVERYTHING the game offers.

After finishing as has become tradition I turned to the back pages to read the speculation about
the story and future for the franchise. Its a great read and guide and I definitely recommend especially
for a game like Black Flag which is so huge and has so much stuff to collect and discover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete Official Guide 15 Jan 2014
By Jadwiga
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found the Official Guide for AC4 indispendible. It really is for the player who either would like 100% sync or a good reference for all the collectibles, explanation for the naval battles, how to collect metal, cloth etc for your ship (cruical for advancing in the game). The picutres are clear and frequent, the walkthroughs consistent and the lists in the book for weapons, outfits, unlockables is nicely organised.

The spoilers are kept away from the walkthroughs, though there is the ability to look up more info on the game if you don't mind spoilers. The various islands are alos listed as well what animals, taverns etc you can find. Defintiely buy if you wish to cover all game points or just would like to dip in and out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly useful guide 7 Jan 2014
By Magneto
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The game is brilliant, and so is this guide. I can't really add to what's already been said in the countless other 5 star reviews found here, just that I have found this guide extremely useful and constantly have it by my side when playing the game. Worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Piggyback guides are incredible! 6 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First of all, before I say anything else, this guide is quite pretty to look at. Although paper back, it's quite a brick, and the front cover is glossy and stands out well. It definitely feels very well made and is pretty much top quality. The inside of the guide is incredibly detailed to the last point, and gives you a lesson in history as well as teaching you the ins and outs of the game! The art work is beautiful and covers nearly every page, making it great to look upon!

If you're looking for an amazing, detailed, professional guide, this is the one for you! AND ALL FOR BARELY £15!
