Asmodee Entertainment is delighted to announce that Aconyte, the new fiction imprint of global games group Asmodee, will be publishing DAY ZERO, the prequel novel to the upcoming Watch Dogs: Legion® game from Ubisoft®.
Set in a darkly dystopian London just a few years from now, the game and the novel reveal how the sinister forces vying to control the nation are opposed by a secretive band of hackers and activists known as DedSec. The novel follows one would-be hacker as he witnesses a savage murder and is then drawn ever deeper into a conspiracy that threatens the entire city. Authentically steeped in London culture and full crammed with fast-paced action, the novel acts as a direct prequel to the events of Watch Dogs: Legion®.
The novel will publish in the US and UK as an ebook (October 13th) and trade paperback (November 3rd), from all good bookstores and online outlets. The authors of this exciting near-future thriller are James Swallow, a New York Times, Sunday Times and Amazon #1 best-seller with his Marc Dane series, as well as bestselling tie-in novels for Star Trek, Warhammer, Doctor Who, and Deus Ex; and Josh Reynolds, noted writer of many all-action novels for the Warhammer range, most recently Knight of the Blazing Sun, as well as his Daidoji Shin novels for Aconyte.
