The lights are on
Watch Dogs, Ubisoft's newest open world property, is set to arrive on current- and next-generation systems this fall. In addition to the power of the Disrupt engine, the art of the title creates a realistic and vibrant cityscape for anti-hero Aiden Pearce.
To celebrate the artistry of the Watch Dogs world, Ubisoft is working with author Andy McVittie on a book showcasing some of the visuals. The 144 page work will be available on November 19, 2013. An additional limited slipcase run (500 copies) will include signed concept art. Ubisoft is also planning the release of a companion for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
Watch Dogs arrives on PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on November 21, 2013. The title is also confirmed for the launches of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Lets see how long its going to be before we see someone suing Ubisoft for using a “Chicago Map”
"Companion art books for games both large and small are quickly becoming popular," you don't say? Maybe that's because game art is just getting ridiculously good. I don't buy them just thanks to spending the money on the games themselves, but as a recreationist artist, I would be drawing everything from Watch_Dogs. Looks amazing. Also hope that Dan Ryckert shows up in the game/book. I wonder what wrestling shirt they slapped on him.
i love looking through the extras on games and seeing great game art
I may buy this.
Concept art? Nah I'd rather just drive out to Chi town and see for myself
I would certainly love to get my hands on that..
As an art student i love the art books because it really gives you a glimpse of what type of quality the employers are looking for. Plus helps gives me ideas an how far to push my imagination. Plus it helps me focus on what I need to work on.
