Update: Ubisoft has released the official patch notes which are listed below!
New story expansion: Bloodline
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 & experience. With Wrench’s unpredictable behavior, things are bound to get chaotic.

Check out our dedicated Tea Time with Bagley Bloodline blog.
Bloodline is immediately available for Season Pass holders and can be purchased separately for players that own the base game in the in-game store. The High Value Characters Aiden and Wrench that you can play in the Single-Player campaign of Watch Dogs: Legion and the Online mode are also available for Season Pass owners.
Operative Mask Toggle
– Added a setting in the wardrobe that determines how an Operative wears their mask.
- Auto = Default behavior, operative will put on the mask in combat and restricted areas.
- Always ON = Operative will always wear their mask
- Always OFF = Operative will never wear their mask
– This is set on a per operative basis.
Masks! They are fun, they look cool, and now you have more direct control over when your operative’s wear ’em. Or maybe not wear ’em. It is up to you! This has long been a request from both fans and us devs alike, and we are really happy with the additional customization this allows. We hope you dig it as much as we do!
Improved Operative Bio (Dynamic Primary Line)
- An operative’s primary bio line will now dynamically display important recent memories.
- Added over 15 operative memories that trigger in more systemic ways (not mission related).
- Fixed an issue that caused low priority memories to be displayed too frequently.
As we continue to bolster the Operative Bio feature, we wanted to make the actions you take with operatives even more visible.

In addition, we also added a few memories that can happen more organically, outside of missions.
