watchdogs honored Watch Dogs’ Maiden DLC May Bring Aiden Pearce To New Jersey

According to an official Tweet from Ubisoft, Watch Dogs’ gravel-voiced protagonist Aiden Pearce could be leaving the Windy City come fall, as the company hinted that the game’s first batch of downloadable content will take place in Camden, New Jersey.

Along with the tease, the Twitter page stated that: “Our data indicates surveillance has become more prominent in high-crime areas.” While vague, the message may give an indication that Ubisoft is prepping to introduce players to new game mechanics; after all, hacking your way through various gang hideouts in the core campaign became very tedious, very quickly.

Much like with the initial reveal in 2012, Ubisoft appears to be marrying the tech-infused narrative of Watch Dogs with official criminal statistics for that added dash of realism — in this case, the hyperbolic crime rate of Camden, New Jersey.

Dubious crime figures aside, however, it’ll be interesting to see whether the studio remains loyal to Aiden Pearce for the DLC or, in the vein of inFamous: Second Son’s first batch of add-on First Light, decides to pass the mantle onto a secondary character (namely the loudmouthed Raymond ‘“T-Bone” Kennedy).

Though it is without an official release date at this time, we expect Watch Dogs’ maiden content pack to debut in the fall.

Tell us, do you think Ubisoft is right to leave the Windy City behind and explore other areas outside of Chicago in this forthcoming DLC for Watch Dogs? Sound off in the comments section below.

    I would really rather not play as T-Bone, sure he was cool but they just made him to be a badass who could do anything and to base him on a real guy just feels wrong. Id rather play as Aiden again (with a better story) or my own trenchcoat sportng character. All the E3 stuff of this game was better than the finished product.

      I’ll assume that this is the T-Bone DLC for the Season Pass holders that we have been waiting for

        Damn right.
        Although I would not mind some major Aiden content as well since the season pass should cover that too! =)

          I wouldnt mind playing as Jordi either, I thought he was pretty funny and cool too. I would definately much rather play as him than T-Bone

    Whatever the DLC is, I hope it has a lot more combat, more base invasions..

    DLC will prolly be a reference to T-Bones original BlackOut, since Season pass were gurantee’d access to a play as T-Bone DLC
