Watch Dogs story DLC 'Bad Blood' arrives later this month

The new storyline missions Ubisoft promised Watch Dogs owners at the game's May debut will finally arrive on September 30 as a downloadable addition dubbed "Bad Blood."

The 10 missions included in Bad Blood center on dreadlocked hacker Raymond "T-Bone" Kenney as he attempts to help an old pal in the wake of the events of Watch Dogs. In addition, the DLC introduces the new "Street Sweep" contracts, in which a player (or two in co-op mode) sets out to rid Chicago of street crime with extreme prejudice. New weapons, perks and outfits round out the downloadable addition, though Ubisoft's announcement offers no further details on those aspects of the DLC.

Ubisoft has yet to reveal the price attached to Bad Blood individually, though the DLC is included in the $20 Watch Dogs Season Pass.

London, UK – September 3, 2014 – Today, Ubisoft announced that Watch_Dogs Bad Blood, a new downloadable piece of content for Watch_Dogs®, the record-breaking open-world action game that has sold-in more than 8 million units, will release on September 23 for season pass holders and September 30 for all other players.
Watch_Dogs Bad Blood features an all new story campaign starring T-Bone, the brilliant and eccentric hacker players first met in Watch_Dogs, who is now playable for the first time. The campaign explores T-Bone's story through 10 new missions set in new locations throughout Chicago. Shortly after the events of Watch_Dogs, 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.



Watch_Dogs Bad Blood also grants players access to "Street Sweep" contracts, a dynamic new system of side missions that offers players endless hours of challenges. All Street Sweep contracts are playable in co-op mode (friend or public sessions), a first for Watch_Dogs, allowing two players to work together to combat Chicago's criminal groups. The popular online 'Hacking' and 'Tailing' modes as well as the ctOS Companion App are also fully playable as T-Bone in Watch_Dogs Bad Blood.
In addition, Watch_Dogs Bad Blood features exclusive weapons, perks and outfits, including the remote-controlled car "Eugene," T-Bone's latest creation that can be upgraded with both offensive and defensive perks.
Players looking for early access to the upcoming Watch_Dogs Bad Blood DLC, as well as the "Access Granted Pack" and "Conspiracy!" Digital Trip can still purchase the Season Pass. For more information on the Watch_Dogs Season Pass, please visit: http://watchdogs.com/badblood
