The publisher and developer Ubisoft officially releases the first DLC pack for the PlayStation 4 version of its open world action-adventure title, Watch Dogs 2.
About a week ago, Ubisoft broke the news to Watch Dogs 2 fans that the game’s first DLC pack was delayed due to multiplayer issues related to the mode’s seamless online experience not working properly. Now, however, the wait is over for some, as the publisher and developer have officially launched Watch Dogs 2‘s first piece of post-launch content today for PlayStation 4 fans.
As initially reported by GameSpot, the Watch Dogs 2 add-on centers around the popular character known as T-Bone (AKA Raymond Kenney), and it’s officially dubbed the T-Bone Content Bundle. Although it’s currently only available to fans on the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One players will receive it on January 24, 2017.
As far as the materials within Watch Dogs 2‘s T-Bone Content Bundle are concerned, fans might be disappointed to learn that there will be no single player missions included. However, the action-adventure title’s first DLC pack does feature a new Mayhem co-op challenge, a new Grenadier enemy type, T-bone’s signature clothes, and even a modded school bus vehicle.
In order to commemorate the launch of Watch Dogs 2‘s first DLC pack, Ubisoft has taken the liberty of creating a new in-game event called the T-Bone Chaos Challenge, which has officially gone live today. As the developer explains, the event will have players taking part in a series of timed events such as the completion of bounties, taking on co-op missions, undertaking specific ways in which enemies need to be killed, and more, with each divvying out rewards such as new car skins or in-game currency.
Watch Dogs 2 fans on PlayStation 4 who own the game’s Season Pass should be able to access all of the assets found within the T-Bone Content Bundle right now. Those who wish to purchase it as a standalone, though, won’t have to pay too much out of pocket, as the DLC has a price point of $7.
While the release of Watch Dogs 2‘s first DLC package indicates better days on the way for the title’s post-launch lifespan, a lot of PC players had initially experienced some grief when attempting to play the game, as Ubisoft’s third-party anti-cheat software prevented some from playing online. Unfortunately, the developer has yet to provide a specific fix for the problem, but it has confirmed that it is currently working on a solution. With any luck, Ubisoft will soon be able to build upon the last update’s patch notes to provide a more comprehensive panacea for all of the ills and bugs that currently plague Watch Dogs 2.
Watch Dogs 2 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
