Watch Dogs season pass listed by GameStop, contains new playable character

GameStop lists a season pass for Watch Dogs with new single-player content, priced $19.99.

GameStop has listed details for a Watch Dogs season pass, stating that Ubisoft will release an additional playable character with their own suite of story missions as DLC for the upcoming open-world title.

The Watch Dogs season pass (spotted by AGB) is priced at $19.99, and is said to contain more missions, weapons, and exclusive content. Ubisoft will also likely sell the content in individual packs, as GameStop states that buying the season pass is 30 percent cheaper than purchasing individually.

Ubisoft previously offered a similar initiative for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, which featured its own mini-campaign where players took the role of protagonist Edward Kenway's first mate Adewale.

Watch Dogs animation director Colin Graham previously said that the power of the PlayStation 4 gave the developers "a chance to dream". Perhaps they dreamed about making DLC?

Ubisoft has not officially announced a Watch Dogs season pass.

Watch Dogs will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on May 27. The publisher yesterday confirmed that the PC version will require Uplay.

Season passes are a good thing.  Any game that has one is like a big warning sign on the box.

Season Pass? F*^K YOU UBISOFT!!! Looks like I am going to be canceling my Watch Dogs pre-order and wait even longer for a Game of The Year edition.

No interest  in game breaking weapons or any multiplayer BS. I might be interested in more missions but I really hate the idea of season passes, paying up front when you don't know if it's worth the price yet. I've seen enough gameplay footage to make a judgement call on a pre-order but I'll have to see a lot more specifics before I pony up for a season pass.

Suddenly I think I may cancel my pre-order & just wait 1 year for the Game Of The Year edition.....

I hope the delay was not to make sure the DLC was ready for release...

I hope that there is an in-game apps store microtransaction mechanic, for buying apps for your in-game smartphone

Sigh.  Don't they know that people don't like DLC on the day the game is released?  Do they think we'll like DLC BEFORE the game is released?  


This game is using up all the good will and excitement it earned.  Quickly.

They should drop the season pass and just put all that content in the game where it belongs. No need to charge extra

Here's a solution for people that want to buy season pass but Cant afford extra $20. 
1) Wait 4-7 days after release
2) Find a copy on kijiji/craiglist/etc. they will usually sell for $20-$15 dollars below retail
3) Buy season pass.

4) Enjoy

so thats why the game was delayed, they had to split the game, release 65% as the main game and 35% as the DLC. Nice...

Ubisoft are clearly jealous of EA's worst company in America record and want some accolades of their own.

Not sure if was always like this , but it was at least for the games I bought if you bought the season pass you got everything EVERYTHING. Now the Season pass only gives you about 50 to 70% of the DLC  and you still have to pay more for all of it.

Addtionally, because of this, I will rarely buy a game at launch going forward, I will wait a year or more and buy the GOTY or Enhanced addition for $60 total. OR wait longer and get everything on Steam for 75% off during a Summer Sale.

People that buy season passes are ruining the industry for the rest of us. We end up getting forced to pay 80-120$ if we want the full game.


STOP buying season passes FFS!

I'm still buying the game but I don't do Season Pass unless I know what I'm getting first but otherwise, no thanks Ubisoft. Just give me the game now!

This seems to be a trend with Ubisoft.  $20 Season Pass for some extra content which is neither that impressive nor exceptionally enjoyable.

As a seasoned gamer, I'll pass on this one.

Forgive my ignorance, but, is it playable without the season pass or is it another cash grab?

@catholic_gamer  They already confirmed a monthly fee for the in-game smartphone's service.  It's a 3yr commitment with data plan required, unless you want to pay upfront for the phone.

And i bet you think ppl buying dlc is ruining games

True but i will still but it because they said there is 100 hours of gameplay even with out roaming and causing havok on your own. Just stop buying DLC and they will stop charging for this crap. It will probably be just 3 hrs anyway. No loss.

Eh nah, ill just buy the dlc if i want it and won't if i don't, simple.

@Daian  I feel like a person should do research before buying season passes, I've only bought 1 and that was for bioshock infinite. Which i was very happy about i got two really good stories out of it and a challenge run which wasn't the best but it did get me to play it for 8-10 hours. the other two got me maybe 15-20 together so 23-30 hours of more game for 20 bucks was a great deal i felt. It's almost a buck a hour.

@Daian  Lets say its the year 1999, games where $50.00. Today $50.00 = $70.45 and your not happy spend just 80? 

Paying for Season Pass is not, its the cost of making games and people are being tight ass's with small amounts of money.  Buy it, Don't buy it, Don't Judge Me.

@ssj-makuch  I would like to believe (hope, wish, pray) that Micro-transactions are a passing phase.  Once the masses move on to the next hype, hopefully they'll diminish from the core of gaming.  




Dreams are free..

@repetitious It is. Funny how we can't get complete games anymore because people like you come along to defend this shit.

@Popa2caps @Daian  Games today are way more expensive to produce then 10 years ago, I admit that some season passes are just BS like the BF4, which requires you to pay $50 for a broken game (might be fixed by now, I didn't play it for a month now). One thing for sure DLCs/Season pass are a way better option than Microtrasactions and Free 2 Play, with a pay to win Market Shops ingame.

@Popa2caps well I live in Europe so I already have to pay 60 Euros = 82$. So yeah, I have a problem with having to pay up to twice more (160$) to get the full game that I technically already paid for initially.
