The anti-hero of Watch Dogs, and the colourful ally from Watch Dogs 2 will reunite later this summer, as part of Watch Dogs: Legion‘s standalone Bloodline expansion. They will do so on the sixth of July, to be exact.
Set before the events of Watch Dogs: Legion‘s main campaign, Bloodline will feature both Aiden Pearce and Wrench as main characters. Over the course of its runtime, it will offer interesting side quests and flesh out the story between the first two games and this one.
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 and experience. With Wrench’s unpredictable behavior, things are bound to get chaotic.
Watch Dogs fans can purchase Bloodline as a standalone experience, for $19.99. That said, those who already own the game’s Season Pass, or purchased one of its fancy special editions, should already have access.
