Watch Dogs season pass detailed

Watch Dogs season pass detailed

Watch Dogs is due for release on May 27. It was originally slated for a November release as a PS4 and Xbox One launch title.

Ubisoft has unveiled details of the Watch Dogs season pass, adding extra content to the much anticipated open-world hacking action-adventure game.

The $19.99 pass will include access to three additional single-player packs that will add extra missions to play through as main character Aiden Pearce and a new single-player campaign pitting players in the shoes of Pearce's dreadlock-sporting friend T-Bone.

A new mode titled Conspiracy will also be included which turns Watch Dogs’ citizens into robotic zombies. This will be added to the Digital Trip selection, representing a series of altered mental states for the main character to experience.

Other smaller missions, extra weapons and outfits will also be accessible through the season pass, including the Untouchables Pack exclusive to North America which allows players to dress Pearce as a 1920s era gangster complete with Tommy gun.

Season pass holders will also be able to access any downloadable content a week before the rest of the Watch Dogs community.

Watch Dogs is due to be released on the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC on May 27. A version for the Wii U is also in development although has no release date confirmed as of yet.

First revealed during E3 2012, Watch Dogs was originally intended as a launch title for th Playstation 4 and Xbox One back in November. Allegedly, Ubisoft is also working on a Watch Dogs film in conjunction with Sony Pictures.

That's one of the reasons why I've basically stopped playing games alltogether.

As long as the main game is meaty I don't mind too much & will get the season pass on a sale if it's worth getting, if loaded then why not get it when it comes, no point to buying a season pass on day 1 unless 50% regular price for the first week to motivate people to buy it, they'd sell more with less chance of alienating the fans & make bigger profits that way.

"Untouchables Pack exclusive to North America"...........WTF! This is the internet. I was really looking forward to this game but things like this make me really consider whether I want to support it at all. I'm definitely reconsidering getting this now, even though I wouldn't buy the DLC anyway on principle.

So much bitchin' over paid DLC. You do realise that game makers are trying to pull a profit right? What really upsets you? That the 'whole' game is actually £40 + £20? Would you rather it was £60? Would you rather they just charged you less and paid their developers less money? (They sure as hell won't pay their execs any less!)

Or does it upset you that they had the audacity to develop this extra content at mostly the same time as they developed the main game? You want them to wait, and then start on new content and have it arrive a year after release?

Or do you just hate DLC because... you know... DLC.

I think it doesn't help that this is a Ubisoft announcement. Other publishers/games companies do exactly the same thing without anyone batting an eyelid. I think the crucial factor as to whether season passes (and DLC in general) are a good or bad thing is the content of the DLC themselves.

Borderlands 2 came with a season pass, that I and my friends snapped up as soon as it came out, because we knew from the original Borderlands that the DLC is fleshed out extra content that extends the original story in much the same fashion as the base game (more guns, more levels, much more laughter). The other end of the spectrum is BF4, I've been massively let down so far with the DLC in the season pass ('premium') for that.

Judge for yourselves whether you think it is worth getting the Season pass, just one or two of the DLC, just the base game, or none at all. If they keep churning out crap DLC and they see their sales of said shoddy product are low, then they'll either stop making DLC, or improve the quality of it.

My biggest gripe with games recently has been 'exclusive' DLC (looking at you Mass Effect), buy from one retailer to get one set of armour, or another retailer for a shiny gun or skin. If I want everything then I need to buy multiple copies of the game, or far easier (and more likely) find a pirated version with all the different exclusives included.

First of all they should release a finished and rather bugfree game. One that offers enough interesting and well written content to keep me playing for some 50 hours.

After that they can release addons or DLCs, but these should be basically unrelated to the main-story and they shouldn't make the main-story easier or different.
AddOns or DLC shouldn't be about new equipment, but new well written storylines.

At least it had single player missions.

DLC is publishers/developers trying to rip off the COD model. It's not like the old add ons of old but sections of the main game ripped out and resold. Plus making content geographically restricted is retarded, and I use dns and vpns to circumvent most restrictions.

Remember long ago before everyone had broadband when DLC used to be called expansion packs and were usually worth the price they charged. Now most DLC is just content removed from the original game or crap created during lunch breaks and sold to people who MUST OWN EVERYTHING!

This exactly, and I wish we could go back to those expansions again instead of having tons of little crappy DLCs.

I usually do, but the issue is still the same for those, who want to play on release.

I just look at my steam collection and rattle off one or two games i've got in a sale and never played, to see me through.
