If you've been staring at your copy of "Watch Dogs" for the past few months wondering if Ubisoft had plans on releasing sizable DLC for the hack-heavy game, your answer came earlier today, Sept 3, when the developer announced a new single-player experience, "Bad Blood". The add-on is scheduled to launch on Sept 23 for season pass holders and Sept 30 for everybody else.
Acting as a mini-sequel to the events of protagonist Aiden Pearce's tale, "Bad Blood" pits gamers as Raymond "T-Bone" Kenney, Aiden's hesitant partner in crime in "Watch Dogs'" fourth act. The DLC will span 10 missions, covering new sections of Chicago as T-Bone attempts to throw off the corrupt Blume Corporation with a false trail. Of course, in typical video-game-plot fashion, things get complicated when T-Bone's former colleague and Aiden's parts supplier, Tobias Frewer, requests help.
The online Hacking and Tailing modes are making a return in "Bad Blood" and Ubisoft is adding Street Sweep contracts, a "dynamic new system of side missions that offers players endless hours of challenges." Though the description is cryptic, it's refreshing to see that Ubisoft didn't just up and forget about "Watch Dogs". DLC with a little depth and new game features are always a welcomed edition to any game, especially one that could use a little refreshing.
"Bad Blood" will release for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC versions of "Watch Dogs".
