The Art Of Watch Dogs Brings Chicago To Life

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.  


Our Take
Companion art books for games both large and small are quickly becoming popular. From collector's editions pack-ins to standalone works, these works are an opportunity to showcase some of the conceptual and applied design sensibilities while providing readers an opportunity to learn more about how their favorite playgrounds were created.
