Watch Dogs' DLC season pass will bring a number of add-ons to the open-world thriller, including a story expansion, a new mode and more, for $19.99, publisher Ubisoft announced today.
Headlining the season pass content is a new single-player campaign that will let you play as the eccentric hacker T-Bone. Three other single-player add-ons — the Breakthrough Pack, the Signature Shot Pack and the Palace Pack — will give Watch Dogs protagonist Aiden Pearce additional missions to play.
Also included in the season pass is a mode called Conspiracy, a new type of the game's Digital Trip offerings, which exist in the Watch Dogs fiction as altered mental states for Pearce. In a trailer for the season pass, Conspiracy appears to turn the citizens of Watch Dogs' Chicago into cybernetic zombies.
In addition, the season pass will offer smaller pieces of content like missions, weapons and outfits for Pearce. That includes the Untouchables Pack, which will be exclusive to the season pass in North America; it will give Pearce a 1920s gangster costume and an M1 submachine gun (the "Tommy" gun).
All buyers of the season pass will be able to access the included content one week before it's available to everyone else. According to Ubisoft, the season pass price represents a discount of more than 25 percent over buying the included DLC packs individually.
Watch Dogs is set for release May 27 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One; the season pass will be sold on those five platforms. The game is still in development on Wii U, although that version has no release window, and Ubisoft confirmed to Polygon today that the season pass won't be available on Wii U.
