This weekend during Ubisoft Forward, Ubisoft announced that Watch Dogs: Legion’s new expansion, Bloodline, will be available on July 6th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, the Epic Games Store, and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, Stadia, Luna and Ubisoft+, Ubisoft’s subscription service. Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline is a standalone narrative expansion where players will control Aiden from the original Watch Dogs game and Wrench from Watch Dogs 2 in a new story arc.
In Bloodline, players will follow Aiden as he accepts a routine fixer job in London to reconnect with his nephew Jackson following the events of Watch Dogs. Aiden’s mission is to infiltrate a high-tech laboratory from Broca Tech to steal a mysterious and valuable piece of technology, but his mission is compromised when Wrench escapes with the device. With his fixer contract now gone sideways, Aiden is caught in a deadly crossfire. With no real allies against a corporate giant and with Wrench one step ahead of him, Aiden must team up with his estranged nephew Jackson and rely on his grit and experience. With Wrench’s unpredictable behavior, things are bound to get chaotic.
Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline is set before the events of Watch Dogs: Legion’s main campaign. Bloodline also features multiple side quests for Aiden and Wrench as they get drawn into London’s struggle with authoritarianism. In addition to the Bloodline expansion, Season Pass owners will be able to add Aiden and Wrench to their DedSec Resistance in the main campaign or in the Online mode, each of them with dedicated abilities. As detailed in the press release:
Aiden Pearce comes with:
- Focus: Slowmo aiming after takedown
- System Crash: Disable electronics in the area
- Gunslinger: Well-timed reload buffs damage
Wrench comes with:
- Summon Sergei: summons a Custom Drone
- Ninja Balls: Mini LTL Flashbangs
- Lady Smash: a Big Custom Hammer

Players can access the Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline expansion through the Season Pass, available now for $29.99 or as part of Watch Dogs: Legion Gold and Ultimate Editions. The expansion can also be purchased as a standalone for $14.99. Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline requires the base game, Watch Dogs: Legion, in order to play.
