New Rough Guide for Xbox

In a tribute to the stunning in-game worlds that provide the background to many top titles, Rough Guides has produced The Rough Guide To Xbox, a unique guide that covers the real and fictional theatres of Halo 5 Guardians, Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 4, Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Anthem, Metro Exodus, Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

The proceeds will be donated to help our work levelling the playing field for gamers with physical disabilities.

The Forza Horizon 4 section, for example, provides details on events, property, hidden cars hidden, as well as maps and in-depth looks at locations such as Edinburgh Castle and Derwent Water. In true Rough Gide style, the chapter on Sea of Thieves, includes guides to the most scenic spots in the game and the top five taverns that gamers can visit.

A Forbes review notes that “It’s eye opening to read, not only in the detail about these virtual places but how good they look. It really holds its own as a guide to these destinations whether they are places you have been already or maybe somewhere you plan to visit in the future.”

You can buy the guide here.

It’s a wonderful book, and huge thanks to our friends at Xbox UK and Rough Guides for their generosity.
