You know those Rough Guides travel books? Well, the company actually made one for Xbox earlier this year, acting as a "pioneering guide that embraces digital tourism in a gaming context." It's a pretty exhaustive 177-page guide, and now you can get the eBook version for free.
Xbox has partnered with the company to give the book away due to the coronavirus pandemic, with so many of us currently being forced to stay at home. Here's how Microsoft describes it:
"Created in partnership with Xbox, “The Rough Guide to Xbox” is a pioneering guide that embraces digital tourism in a gaming context. Like all Rough Guides, it’s a valuable travel companion, except every place can be visited virtually in Xbox games. Using Rough Guides’ unique “Tell it like it is” ethos and user-friendly format, it’s designed to encourage wandering off-piste, away from the gameplay action."
If you want to take a look for yourself, you can grab the eBook over at the official Xbox Wire website. It's packed with information about lots of major Xbox One games including Forza Horizon 4, Sea of Thieves and Halo 5: Guardians, and you can tell a lot of love went into making it. A nice freebie indeed!
