Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline is out now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, adding a new adventure set before the events of the main game. And where Watch Dogs: Legion lets you recruit anyone you see in its open world, Bloodline zeroes in on two characters with a whole lot of tricks up their sleeves: Aiden Pearce, the first game’s vigilante protagonist; and Wrench, Watch Dogs 2’s masked trickster.
While you’ll play as both Aiden and Wrench over the course of the adventure, they aren’t precisely on friendly terms. When Aiden visits London to steal a robot-controlling device from Broca Tech, Wrench intervenes and makes off with the tech — but not before incapacitating Aiden and leaving him for Broca’s goons. Thomas Rempart, CEO and owner of the aforementioned tech, gives Aiden an ultimatum: If he doesn’t hunt down Wrench and recover the device, bad things are going to happen to his nephew.
In addition to the main storyline, each operative has their own side activities to pursue when you’re in control of them – and with the Season Pass, both can be added to your DedSec roster in the main campaign or Online mode. And since Aiden and Wrench need to rely on their own skills in Bloodline, each comes equipped with a variety of unique new abilities and gear to tackle any situation.
Aiden brings back System Crash, a callback to the first game that lets you temporarily disable all nearby electronics. As Aiden, you can also aim in slow motion after taking down an enemy, or get a damage buff after a well-timed reload from a special prompt. And when you’re playing as Wrench, you can summon his custom drone, Sergei, or stun enemies by tossing out his Ninja Ball mini-flashbangs. Wrench also carries a great big hammer named Lady Smash, and can unleash havoc with his custom-skinned MPX SMG and LTL grenade launcher.
The hunt is on, and two of Watch Dogs’ most seasoned vigilante hackers are ready to match wits across London under the shadow of one of Watch Dogs: Legion’s most sinister corporations. What happened before the struggle for the city’s soul began in earnest? Grab Bloodline and find out.
