"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 of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag
