    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 www.watchdogs.com/ebook.

    I forgot
    Fix your formatting please, can't see anything on the Dark Theme.

    Seems neat though, I guess. Perhaps the ebook will cover the in-between stuff when an inevitable sequel comes out for Watch_Dogs.

    I'm not sure what to think of it. There are quite some books (and probably even more ebooks) out there about game plot, but I don't think any of those ever scored a hit. Or were anything above well written fan fiction, for that matter. Why would this one be different?
    Also...with a game that will no doubt include hacking in the form of single click quick time events and an open world where you can wreck mayhem GTA-style...it wouldn't even be worth it to even attempt to try to rationalize it.
