As long-time followers of the action-adventure games sequence will nicely know, Assassin’s Creed has taken us to many alternative locations and time intervals since its launch in 2007. Now, that’s all getting condensed into the pages of a enjoyable new guide, because the sequence is getting its own take on the “search and find” concept standard within the Where’s Wally? puzzle books.

The illustration has a Viking-era scene from the stealth games sequence’ newest entry Valhalla – maybe beginning settlement Fornburg? – filled with people, amongst which we are able to guess there’ll be an Eivor hiding out.
Given Eivor will be male or feminine within the sport, they usually can characteristic fairly a little bit of customisation, with totally different armour units, hairstyles, and tattoos, it’ll be intriguing to see which model of Valhalla’s hero is hiding out. But, hey, certainly that’s all a part of the enjoyable.
