Watch Dogs standalone e-book //n/Dark Clouds launching alongside game May 27

Posted on April 17, 2014 AT 03:00pm

A Watch Dogs eBook that tells a standalone story set in the same universe penned by A Song Called Youth trilogy scribe John Shirley will launch alongside the game on May 27, Ubisoft announced today.

“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,” Shirley said in the press release,” 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 e-book will introduce an ex-military character named Mick Wolfe who “gets caught in a dangerous game in Chicago’s hyper connected and violent underground.” Two versions will be available come May 27: a standard e-book and an interactive, illustrated app alternative. Ubisoft has yet to disclose prices.
