The PS4 and PS3 versions of Watch Dogs will contain roughly an hour of exclusive gameplay. A new trailer from Ubisoft shows what additional content PlayStation gamers can look forward to.
Watch Dogs's biggest piece of exclusive DLC is a new mission pack. In these four missions, Aiden will be contacted by a group of fellow hackers. They want his assistance in attacking a powerful corporation.
"The scenario takes place after Aiden Pearce, the vigilante hero of Watch Dogs, catches the eye of DedSec, a notorious hacker group fighting for freedom and security in the digital age," Ubisoft's Nik Schmidt says on the PlayStation.Blog "Aiden receives an encoded message asking him to help some members of this organization who want payback. Pearce must use his knowledge of Chicago’s complex ctOS network to discover digital vulnerabilities in Umeni Technologies’ security network and earn his reward."
The PS4 and PS3 DLC pack also includes the "White Hat" Hacker outfit for Aiden. If he ever needs to hide in a snow drift, he'll be well-prepared thanks to this new set of clothes:
Additionally, he'll get a perk called Superior Capacity. Superior Capacity will give him an extra battery slot. Battery power is an essential resource for Aiden. Each hacking ability he uses, whether it's manipulating traffic lights or jamming communications, drains these batteries.
This bonus DLC ships with all editions of the game on PS3 and PS4. A voucher with a redemption code should be inside the box.
Retailers are also offering their own sets of bonus DLC. Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart each provide an exclusive add-on with bonus gameplay. For example, Amazon's Signature Shot Pack unlocks a biometric assault rifle and black viceroy outfit after you complete the included mission. Unlike the DedSec DLC mentioned above, these pre-order bundles are available on non-PlayStation platforms as well.
Watch Dogs will launch worldwide on May 27th on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. The Wii U version is still in development as well but hasn't been dated yet.
