Watch Dogs Getting PlayStation Exclusive Content
Ubisoft has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Watch Dogs will receive 60 minutes of exclusive content.
While it’s been rumoured that the PlayStation 3 edition of the game would get exclusive missions for some time, confirmation came yesterday when updated box art for the title was unveiled along with a release date.
Now, Ubisoft has explained that the same content will be available on Sony’s next-gen console as well. A statement provided to IGN reads, “We can confirm that customers who will purchase Watch Dogs on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will be able to download 60 minutes of additional gameplay via the PlayStation Network after the game’s launch. As of now, we have no more details to share.”
It’s not the most shocking development; Ubisoft has a history of providing Sony platforms with exclusive content. Assassin’s Creed III had Benedict Arnold DLC, while Far Cry 3 got additional co-op content.
What’s less clear right now is how the 60 minutes of exclusive content mentioned here will tie in with the 60 minutes of exclusive content announced yesterday as coming with the various Collector’s Editions. Will you get two hours of bonus content if you buy a PS3 Collector’s Edition, for example? We’ve reached out to Ubisoft for clarification and will update the story when we hear back.
