[UPDATE] Watch Dogs Season Pass Accidentally Revealed By GameStop, Hints At 2nd Playable Character
Update: GameStop has since added the Season Pass page to its website, for all platforms. The PS3 and PS4 versions are listed at $19.99, with the 360 and Xbox One versions marked at $20. The following information has been updated accordingly.
The release of Watch Dogs is just a few months away, as Ubisoft’s open-world IP will release on May 27 for current and next-gen consoles and PC; the Wii U version does not have an official release date. With the Sony versions supposedly having “exclusive” content, a recent posting from GameStop claims that even more downloadable content may be coming in the future.
According to a new listing on GameStop’s official website, a Season Pass will be available for purchase on all available platforms (360, One, PS3, PS4). The original listing was leaked earlier today, and only pertained to the PS4 version. The product description states that the hacker-centric thriller will have a “new playable character”, along with more weapons and missions:
“Stay connected to the world of Watch Dogs with the Watch Dogs Season Pass. Get access to a unique Single Player Campaign featuring a new playable character plus more missions, weapons, and exclusive content for $19.99. That’s an over 30% savings versus buying each piece separately.”
This being a Season Pass blurb, and the phrase “each piece separately” both hint at even more content planned for Watch Dogs. Plus, if $19.99 is accurate to 25% in savings, then the Season Pass would theoretically account for $26-28 of additional content.
A full screenshot of the original listing has been archived on Imageshack. The Watch Dogs Season Pass activates on the official launch day of May 27. Currently, the PS3 and PS4 versions have “exclusive” content, including an extra 60 min. of gameplay involving a mission with DedSec, and 4 additional missions. Completing these unlock a series of hacking, vehicle and weapon perks, along with the “DedSec White Hat Hacker” suit for Aiden Pierce. It’s possible that the Season Pass will also be available for the other versions, and will include the previously listed “exclusive” content.
…However, for $69.99 on Steam and through GameStop, PC gamers can purchase Watch Dogs: Deluxe Edition, which includes 60 min. of additional gameplay across 4 new missions, along with several completion perks, and the “DedSec White Hat Hacker” suit.
