Ubisoft Announces Watch Dogs Tie-In eBook

Can't get enough Watch Dogs? Ubisoft hopes that's the case as the publisher has announced an eBook, "//n/Dark Clouds", that will release alongside the game on May 27th, 2014.

The eBook will be penned by John Shirley, known for previous video game tie-in books set in the Borderlands, Doom and BioShock universes.

In a press release distributed by Ubisoft, John Shirley discusses his excitement on penning a book set in this exciting universe.

"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. 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”.

While no price has been announced, Ubisoft has stated that the eBook will be available in the following languages: English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. In addition, an upgraded eBook will be available that features images and video alongside the text.
