Watch Dogs season pass holders, your wait is over: The sizable Bad Blood DLC is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the DLC are said to be "coming soon."

In lieu of another story starring trenchcoat connoisseur Aiden Pearce, Bad Blood focuses on Raymond "T-Bone" Kenney, a hacker most notable for his appearance in the original Watch Dogs campaign and for his off-brand Rob Zombie dreadlocks. "Players pick up T-Bone's story as he's planting a false trail at Blume and receives a panicked phone call from his former Blume colleague, Tobias Frewer, in desperate need of help," reads Ubisoft's official plot description. "T-Bone decides to help Tobias, but quickly realizes the details of his old friend's story aren't adding up." Alongside a new singleplayer campaign, Bad Blood includes additional weapons, perks and outfits, as well as new Street Sweep side missions.

Those who own the Watch Dogs season pass should be able to download Bad Blood immediately. If you don't have the season pass but still want to explore the DLC, you have two options: Either purchase the season pass for $20 or wait until Bad Blood comes available to the public on September 30. There's currently no word on what price will be attached to Bad Blood once it's available a la carte.
