Watch Dogs has an ever expanding world and Ubisoft are looking to explore new avenues in which fans can further their experience. Watch_Dogs //n/Dark Clouds, a newly announced eBook, is a direct sequel to the up and coming Watch Dogs installment.
As if having 30 books under his belt wasn’t enough to instill confidence, the author John Shirley, has an established background in the hacker community as well as the cyberpunk movement. It is clear he is a great fit to launch this new venture.
“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 //n/Dark Clouds will release concurrently with Watch Dogs on May 27th. Available in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
