Watch Dogs Gets its Own E-book
Looking for something a little extra to accompany your Watch Dogs experience? Today, Ubisoft announced an ebook titled ‘Dark Clouds’, authored by John Shirley, the e-book is a direct sequel to the events of the game and will allow fans to further explore the world of Watch Dogs with an all new story. The e-book is a first for Ubisoft, as it was conceived inhouse and will be released exclusively via digital channels.
“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 Chicago’s 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 Dark Clouds will be available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish at 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.
