Created in partnership with Rough Guides, one of the world’s leading travel guide publishers, the book is Rough Guides’ first-ever edition dedicated to virtual worlds, and works as a fully-functioning travel guide, exploring the stunning beauty of games beyond traditional gameplay.
Featuring top travel tips and photos shot by a professional in-game photographer, “The Rough Guide to Xbox” is intended, like other Rough Guides books, to be a valuable travel companion, except that every place from cover to cover can only be visited virtually in Xbox games – which have become vast, hugely detailed, and jaw-droppingly beautiful. It’s designed to encourage occasionally wandering off-piste away from the gameplay action to explore games for their sights to see.
The book features worlds from games such as Halo 5: Guardians, Metro Exodus and Forza Horizon 4, all of which are available on Xbox Game Pass.
The graphical detail of Xbox One X Enhanced games has made a new kind of travel possible, one where people can experience beautiful architecture, meet locals and make memories without having to leave home.
