The Original Watch Dogs Protagonist and the Masked Hacker from Watch Dogs 2 Are Playable in This Brand New Story
SYDNEY, AUSTRAIA– June 15, 2021 – During Ubisoft Forward, Ubisoft announced that Watch Dogs: Legion’s new expansion, Bloodline, will be available on July 6th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, Stadia, Luna and Ubisoft+*, Ubisoft’s subscription service.
Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline is a standalone narrative expansion where players will take control of Aiden from the original Watch Dogs game and Wrench from Watch Dogs 2 in a new story arc. In Bloodline, players will follow Aiden as he accepts a routine fixer job in London to reconnect with his nephew Jackson following the events of Watch Dogs. Aiden’s mission is to infiltrate a high-tech laboratory from Broca Tech to steal a mysterious and valuable piece of technology, but his mission is compromised when Wrench escapes with the device. With his fixer contract now gone sideways, Aiden is caught in a deadly crossfire. With no real allies against a corporate giant, and with Wrench one step ahead of him, Aiden must team up with his estranged nephew Jackson, and rely on his grit & experience. With Wrench’s unpredictable behavior, things are bound to get chaotic.
Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline is set before the events of Watch Dogs: Legion’s main campaign. Bloodline also features multiple side quests for both Aiden and Wrench as they get drawn into London’s struggle with authoritarianism.
Players can access the Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline expansion through the Season Pass, available now for AUD$59.95 or as part of Watch Dogs: Legion Gold and Ultimate Editions. The expansion can also be purchased as a standalone. Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline requires the base game, Watch Dogs: Legion, in order to play.

In Watch Dogs: Legion, London is facing its downfall. Amidst the growing unrest of a restless London, an unknown entity named Zero-Day has framed secret underground resistance DedSec for coordinated bombings across London. In the aftermath, criminal opportunists from every corner of London took hold and filled the void left by a defeated government. As a member of DedSec, players will be going up against those criminal opportunists in Watch Dogs: Legion; sadists, mercenaries, cybercriminals, and more; they’ll have to be prepared for a variety of situations. Players must recruit members into their DedSec Resistance to take on these criminal opportunists, liberate London and uncover the identity of Zero-Day.
