Those of you who have read the expanded universe novels of Bioshock or Borderlands may recognize the name John Shirley. Shirley was responsible for writing novels for both franchises and has now been hired on to do an eBook for the upcoming game Watch Dogs.

The book is titled, Watch Dogs //n/Dark Clouds (Good luck pronouncing that one to your friends), and takes place after the end of the game. You won’t have to play the game to understand the story of the novel since it’s a standalone story. However, chances are if you bought the book, you’re probably a fan of the game.

The book will be available as digital only in two different formats: as a standard digital eBook or as an interactive experience with photos and pictures. The interactive experience can be purchased as an app through mobile devices.

Watch Dogs //n/Dark Clouds  will be released at the same time as the game on May 27. It’s going to be available in 5 different languages which are English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.

Watch Dogs is going to be released on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Note that the Wii U version will be launching at a later date than the rest.
