According to google, yes. And I certainly do, as you may recall from my preparations for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Except that, this time, I nearly didn’t; for some reason ordering a game guide slipped my mind until yesterday.
There are usually 2 options for game guides: a softback edition, and a hardback Collector’s Edition with some added extras (a pull-out map; a code for an exclusive weapon; behind-the-scenes info). I always go for the latter, because I know the guide will see a fair amount of use, and the hardback will be sturdier.
I was surprised to find a third option on this occasion:
The backpack made this briefly tempting, but there’s no way I’m paying more than the retail price of the Deluxe version of the game itself – especially when the Collector’s Edition is only £13.59, and is released on the 23rd.
I expect to be a few hours in by then, courtesy of EA Access, and plan to stick to my rule of only using the guide in emergencies on a first playthrough. Yes, I could look the answers up online, but I’ve been spoiled that way before. And when I’m done, I have the pleasure of flipping through the guide, and seeing what I missed first time out.
