Ubisoft has today announced some new DLC for it’s open-world hack ’em up Watch_Dogs (no, not that sort of hacking, this isn’t Dexter the video game…).
Bad Blood doesn’t star Aiden Pearce, but rather T-Bone, making him playable for the first time. You’re still in Chicago, but you get 10 new missions to delve into T-Bone’s story. Bad Blood takes place “shortly after the events of Watch_Dogs, as Raymond “T-Bone” Kenney infiltrates Blume one last time to plant a false trail in their system. Before he can disappear from the grid, he receives a panicked phone call from Tobias Frewer, a former colleague from Blume’s ctOS prototype days, who’s in desperate need of help. Putting his own escape at risk, T-Bone decides to help, but quickly realises the details of his old friend’s story aren’t adding up.”
As well as this single player story, you’ll also get access to Street Sweep contracts, which are a new set of side missions which not only add more game time, but also introduce co-op multiplayer as you can work through these contracts with someone from your friends list, or in the public domain (if you dare…). You also get some exclusive in-game perks and gear, including a remote-controlled car called Eugene…
Now for the really interesting news… Whether you’ve bought the season pass or not will determine when you get to play Bad Blood. If you did (and apparently you still can), you’ll get to download it on the 23rd September. If not, you’re looking at a week later, the 30th.
Whichever option you plum for, you’re in for a short wait, so why not spend some of it checking out the even shorter trailer below:
