I purchased the original encyclopedia back in 2011 and decided to wait for this most updated version. While the new information is outstanding and very welcome, there are several things that still require updates. The details surrounding Lucy Stillman's death are still absent for starters.
On top of that, we don't see much more information given to the First Civilization -- in fact, it has not been touched since the first edition. Minerva and Juno have had more than enough 'screentime' to warrant their own articles, but they're absent from the book entirely aside a picture of Minerva. Not to mention that droves of artifacts that have been discovered (Shard of Eden, Mayan armor, crystal skull, even the Observatory itself, etc.); these are absent as well.
While it commendably details ships such as the Jackdaw, Queen Anne's Revenge, and the Benjamin, we see no much of Adewale's vessel, the Aquilla, or other well-known and recognizable vessels that played a role in the story of AC.
Lastly, it's missing a few locations from that section of the book. I felt Great Inagua and Long Bay were important enough to warrant their own informational sections, as well as Oak Island, Edinburgh Castle, Cerros, etc. Regardless of the brief encounters we have with such locations, they serve to tell the story and deserve to be included to explain their relation to the universe.
One might argue that this information is unimportant but that is beside the point--this is an encyclopedia relating to the AC universe, and as such, needs to be as inclusive and complete as possible. The thoroughness of the in-game databases and intel reports have conditioned to expect as much, I think that's fair, considering the information IS there -- it just needs to be put into the book.
All in all, the encyclopedia fetches a high price and for that amount of money, I wish it were a little more inclusive. Besides these 'missing pieces', it's a beautifully done book and I can't recommend it enough. I am very much looking forward to the 4th edition which would presumably contain information regarding Unity and Rogue.

I recently purchased the Encyclopedia after a long debate whether or not to get it, and what version to get. I settled on 3.0 because it was the most up to date version currently available. It is quite spectacular. I was not disappointed in the least. I highly recommend this to anything thinking about getting it, get it. Or, wait til 4.0 to come out, probably next year/later this year, and get that. It's a beautiful book with a wealth of information about all the games up to 4.

Commandée il y à tout juste une semaine, j'ai reçu l'Assassin's Creed Encyclopedia 3.0 ce midi avec la 2.0. La qualité est toujours aussi bonne et de nombreuses modifications ont été apportée à l'ancien contenu pour laisser place à de nombreuses pages inédites.
Un vrai petit bijou pour les fans de l'univers d'Assassin's Creed !

The book quality is splendid and the content is top notch. It came with a little surprise inside, like a cereal box lol. I have all 3 editions of the encyclopaedia and version 3.0 is worth it. A must buy for every Assassin's Creed fans. Nice work Ubiworkshop!

Some content missing from previous Encyclopedias but overall a good read.
