Not content with releasing one of the most sought after games of the year, Ubisoft have announced that a brand new novel will accompany the games release in May.
Watch_Dogs //n/Dark Clouds will be available in five languages (English, French, Italian, German and Spanish) at the games release on May 27. Coming in two digital formats; an upgraded e-book version with interactive elements including videos and image and a classic e-book, //n/Dark Clouds will be 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.
Written by John Shirley, a known figure in the hacker community and a pioneer of the cyberpunk movement, the atmosphere of Watch Dogs has been recreated in this high-tech crimes thriller novel.
John had the following to say about his time working on Watch Dogs:
“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”.
