ADDITIONAL CONTENT NOW AVAILABLE FOR WATCH DOGS™

Additional single player missions, bonuses and weapons available

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – July 1, 2014 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that single player content for the open world action-adventure game Watch Dogs is now available on all platforms. Today's release includes three single player missions, unlockable weapons and perks and bonuses to help Aiden on his quest for revenge.

The three missions, detailed below, let players further explore Chicago while earning and unlocking bonuses, boosts, perks, weapons and outfits along the way.

The Palace Single Player Mission: A police raid is planned on the luxury palace of an Internet mogul. His databanks have intimate details on thousands of people including Dedsec and Aiden Pearce. Break inside, wipe his hard drive and escape before the raid begins. Then silence the Internet mogul.
Signature Shot Single Player Mission: A biometrics weapon has been smuggled into Chicago for a captain of the Black Viceroys gang. The weapon only works with the first person to imprint his palm on the handle. Breach a stronghold, steal the package and be the first to imprint the weapon.
Breakthrough Single Player Mission: A secret gathering is underway. The Chicago South Club is negotiating power with Corporate CEOs. The Club has hired scramblers to block surveillance devices. Find the scrambler vehicles and take out their technicians. Locate the meeting and eliminate everyone taking part.
New weapons available with this content include the Biometric Rifle and the Auto-6 pistol. The Biometric Rifle is acquired after successfully completing the Signature Shot mission and is unique to Aiden, responding his finger prints alone. It excels at long range, but still has a high rate of fire for when combat gets up close and personal. The Auto-6 is a burst fire pistol that is extremely effective and deals a large amount of damage.

Among the new perks, bonuses and outfit additions are a Dedsec Battery Boost that adds additional phone battery, the South Chicago outfit, a Blume Weapon Boost that permits faster reloading for all weapons and less recoil, a Driving Master boost that offers improved vehicle hit points and an ATM Hack boost that increases the amount of money gained when hacking accounts at ATMs.

Season Pass holders received access to this content one week in advance and starting today non Season Pass holders can purchase the content for $6.99. Players hoping for early access to the upcoming Single Player Story, as well as access to today's content drop and the Conspiracy! Digital Trip can still purchase the Season Pass for $19.99.

In Watch Dogs players assume the role Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt his family, players will be able to monitor and hack their enemies by manipulating everything connected to the city's Central Operating System (ctOS). ctOS controls almost every piece of the city's technology and holds key information on all of the city's residents. Players will access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate targets, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop enemies, and more. Watch Dogs lets the player use Chicago as their ultimate weapon and exact their own style of revenge.
