Ubisoft have just announced an e-book based on Watch_Dogs called //n/ Dark Clouds, written by John Shirley. The e-book is a direct sequel to events in the game and will expand into a brand new story giving a fans a real insight into the world of Watch_Dogs.
John Shirley has written 30 books and short stories, he’s also a known figure in the hacker community and is a front-man in the cyberpunk movement, making him ideal to write this story.
John had this to say about the book
“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”
//n/Dark Clouds will be available to buy when the game launches this May, it will be available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish and will come in two flavours, a classic e-book and an upgraded version with interactive elements including videos and images.
