Ubisoft reveals what’s coming in the second DLC for Watch Dogs 2, titled Human Conditions, which includes new story operations, missions, enemy type, and more.
The first DLC for Ubisoft’s open world action-adventure game, Watch Dogs 2, debuted in December (or the end of January for those playing on Xbox One and PC). That DLC, the T-Bone Content Bundle provided Watch Dogs 2 players a new Mayhem co-op challenge, a new Grenadier enemy type, T-bone’s signature clothes, and a modded school bus vehicle. While it provided support and more content for the game post-launch, the first DLC did not provide any new story content.
However, that’s about to change with Watch Dog 2‘s second DLC offering, titled Human Conditions. Human Conditions is set to launch on PlayStation 4 on February 21, while those on PC and Xbox One will have to wait until March 23. Ubisoft detailed the DLC and previewed some of its content in a trailer, which the developer said will provide “substantial story arcs.”
Ubisoft says Human Conditions is a “beefy expansion” that provides three multi-mission Operations each with their own storyline, elite co-op missions, a new hack-proof Jammer enemy type, and a new vehicle. The developer says the Operations for Marcus Holloway and his DedSec crew come with “new areas to explore and unique challenges to face.”
The first of the detailed Operations is Bad Medicine, which sets Marcus on the trail of Russian mobsters that have hacked Bay Area hospitals. This Operation also brings back an old face to the world of Watch Dogs, Jordi Chin, who fans of the first game should recognize as one of Aiden Pearce‘s allies. Among other things, Bad Medicine will task players with getting through a heavily guarded construction site and piloting drones through a Star Wars-inspired server array.
The second operation, called Automata, centers around the debut of a new self-driving car. While players will eventually unlock that car for their own use whenever they want it, the multi-part mission consists of players having to infiltrate a biometric security company and a heavily guarded TV station.
There’s one more Operation included in this DLC called Caustic Progress, but it is being kept under wraps for now. Given the title, though, it’s a safe assumption that the story add-on will either involve some explosions.
The Operations included in Human Conditions are independent from the main story of Watch Dogs 2, meaning players can jump in without having reached the recently extended ending to the main story. Human Conditions will be available to those who have purchased a Season Pass for Watch Dogs 2, and it will also be available for purchase on its own.
Watch Dogs 2 is out now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
