Ubisoft has announced an eBook inspired by Watch Dogs called Watch_Dogs //n/Dark Clouds.
The weirdly named book is being written by John Shirley and the book’s storyline takes place after the game ends. This is the first eBook Ubisoft has produced.
Here’s what author John Shirley had to say on the project:
Working on Watch Dogs was enormously interesting to me because its world offers the convergence of cyberpunk and the edgy tech reality of our times; it all plays out with action and energy against the inner city backdrop that I thrive in said John Shirley. With hack tech in one hand and gun in the other, Aiden Pearce is a believable fusion of hacker and action hero who deliberately slips between the cracks of society to relentlessly pursue his agenda. The novel introduces Mick Wolfe, an ex-military, who get caught in a dangerous game in Chicagos hyper connected and violent underground. Working with Thomas Geffroyd and Kevin Shortt at Ubisoft to develop the book was a rocking experience Ubisoft is right out there on the frontier of videogame development. I couldn’t ask for more inspiration.
Watch_Dogs //n/Dark Clouds will be available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish at the game’s release on May 27, 2014. It will be available in two digital formats: an upgraded e-book version with interactive elements including videos and image and a classic e-book.
