Aconyte, the fiction imprint of global games group Asmodee, has announced it has licensed its range of all-action novels set in the worlds of Ubisoft’s video games for French translation by pop culture publishing house 404 Editions, an imprint of Editis. 

Beginning in early summer of 2022, 404 Editions will kick off an ongoing range of novels from across some of Ubisoft’s game worlds, including “Assassin’s Creed,” “Watch Dogs,” “Tom Clancy’s The Division,” “Splinter Cell” and more. The series will explore never-before-seen parts of the settings to create a variety of original stories, some revealing the hidden histories of characters. 

“We’re delighted to partner once more with Aconyte, this time to bring iconic Ubisoft universes to French readers through exciting novels,” says Alexandra Bentz, head, 404 Editions “We’re convinced that by combining our strengths we can be successful in making fans fall in love with these innovative stories.” 

The originals are being published in English by Asmodee Entertainment’s Aconyte Books imprint, with whom 404 Editions already has a multi-year partnership for several ranges of novels based on Asmodee board games and characters from across the Marvel Universe. “Novelizations that tell the story behind new games are always great reading, but these previously untold stories, characters and settings will build on that to truly bring some of Ubisoft’s most exciting worlds to vivid life,” says Marc Gascoigne, publisher, Aconyte.
