Watch Dogs eBook Announced

Ubisoft has announced the release of a Watch Dogs eBook, entitled "Watch Dogs //n//Dark Clouds."

The title is an odd one, but it shows that the book centers on the cyberpunkish near-future intrigue that fuels the plot in Watch Dogs. The story will take place after the events of the video game, and will follow ex-military operative Mick Wolfe as he deals with the dangerous world of Chicago's underground hacker elite. It's unknown if the protagonist of the Watch Dogs video game, Aiden Pierce, will be part of the novel.

John Shirley will be the author of the ebook. Shirley is known for writing novels based on video games such as Doom, Borderlands 2, and Bioshock.


"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. 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," Shirley said.

Watch Dogs //n//Dark Clouds will releaseon May 27, alongside the game. It will be available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
