Ubisoft has announced it is publishing an e-book sequel to Watch Dogs, written by science fiction author John Shirley.
The ebook, titled Watch Dogs //n/Dark Clouds, will release exclusively as a digital download in both a classic e-reader friendly form and an expanded edition which features interactive videos and images. Shirley said the story will introduce new characters to the Watch Dogs universe, as well as following the adventures of existing characters. It will take place directly after the events of the game.
“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,” said Shirley in a press release. “The novel introduces Mick Wolfe, an ex-military, who gets caught in a dangerous game in Chicago’s hyper connected and violent underground.”
The Watch Dogs worldwide release date is May 27th and will be available on the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. A Wii U version is expected to release later this year.
