Conspiracy digital trip now available as Watch Dogs DLC


Ubisoft has issued a small piece of DLC for its open-world hackers-as-wizards game Watch Dogs, though instead of new weapons, vehicles or trenchcoats, this DLC adds a new digital trip, dubbed "Conspiracy."

For those unaware, digital trips are a special sort of mini-game in Watch Dogs that paint the otherwise staid Chicago landscape with augmented reality features. Conspiracy, for instance, populates the area with stealthy cyborgs that must be hunted down and dispatched with as much prejudice as you can muster. Think of it as a reverse Terminator scenario. Unfortunately, since Watch Dogs is a misleading title, you won't have helpful canine bystanders barking their heads off at anyone with a metal endoskeleton.

Those interested in adding Conspiracy to Watch Dogs' complement of digital trips can purchase the DLC at a price of $5. Alternately, those who've sprung for the $20 season pass will receive Conspiracy at no additional charge.

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.
