London, UK – April 17, 2014 – Today, Ubisoft announced the ebook Watch_Dogs //n/Dark Clouds, inspired by the highly anticipated video game Watch Dogs™. Authored by John Shirley, the ebook is 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. The ebook is a first for Ubisoft, as it was conceived inhouse and will be released exclusively via digital channels.

John Shirley, prolific author of over 30 books and short stories such as A Song Called Youth, is a known figure in the hacker community and is a pioneer of the cyberpunk movement, and therefore is a natural fit to author the Watch Dogs™ ebook. Having unprecedented access to our Montreal studio dev team and writers, he has recreated the atmosphere of Watch Dogs™, into his thriller, that combines high-tech crimes with both new and known characters.

Watch_Dogs //n/Dark Clouds will be available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish at game's release on May 27, 2014. It will be available in two digital formats: an upgraded e-book version with interactive elements including videos and image and a classic e-book. For more information, click here

Video gaming communities can be among the worst communities by far.
