Ubisoft has released a new DLC pack for its blockbuster open-world game Watch Dogs, adding three new missions into the single-player mode. The new missions in the 'Access Granted Pack' include The Palace, Signature Shot and Breakthrough. This trio of assignments allow the player to explore Chicago further, whilst giving them a chance to earn new weapons, new outfits and other perks along the way.

Below you can find the official description of each new single player mission:

The Palace Single Player Mission: A police raid is planned on the luxury palace of an Internet mogul. His databanks have intimate details on thousands of people including Dedsec and Aiden Pearce. Break inside, wipe his hard drive and escape before the raid begins. Then silence the Internet mogul.

Signature Shot Single Player Mission: A biometrics weapon has been smuggled into Chicago for a captain of the Black Viceroys gang. The weapon only works with the first person to imprint his palm on the handle. Breach a stronghold, steal the package and be the first to imprint the weapon.

Breakthrough Single Player Mission: A secret gathering is underway. The Chicago South Club is negotiating power with Corporate CEOs. The Club has hired scramblers to block surveillance devices. Find the scrambler vehicles and take out their technicians. Locate the meeting and eliminate everyone taking part.

New weapons included in this DLC are the Biometric Rifle and the Auto-6 pistol. The rifle can be retrieved after completing the Signature Shot mission and will become unique to Aiden, responding only to his finger print profile (biometrics). The Auto-6 is said to be a burst-fire pistol capable of a lot of damage.

Other perks and boosts players can receive include a South Chicago outfit, a Dedsec Battery Boost which will juice up your phone battery, Blume Weapon Boost which gives faster reloading and reduced recoil for all weapons, improved vehicle hit points with the Driving Master boost and an ATM Hack boost which increases the amount of money capable of being stolen from ATMs.

The DLC was already released to players who purchased the $19.99/£15.99 DLC season pass last week. Those who are not pass holders can now buy the 'Access Granted Pack' for $6.99/£5.60 for their Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS 3 or PC.

“New outfits”, huh…?
So same outfits, but just in even more different colours, then?

Do we know how many additional hours of gameplay this DLC will bring?
And how much actual downloading will be required I wonder? I have a funny feeling it'll be none and all this content was already there, just locked up waiting for more money.
So it seems like re-textured clothing and a shiny new pay to win gun… Well done Ubisoft in becoming the new EA! At-least they haven't released the better graphics as a new DLC (yet), I wouldn't put it past them
Is this game any good,I was thinking of getting involved

I honestly think it's a really good game. Nothing special imo, but definitely a good game! though the issue on pc where it starts to memory leak like crazy is just unacceptable. driving sucks too, mainly because the framerate will massively drop, unwarranted. these issues are because it is a bad console port. one of the devs even admitted it on twitter. though he worded it slightly more tactically. but still, he admitted it. anyway, these concerns are only for pc as far as i'm aware. i might reinstall it if these dlc's turn out to be any good and they get a good patch out for the game (though that might've happened already?). but mainly because i want to try out the discovered graphics settings which they hid! you can make the game look much more like the 2012 e3 demo when you enable them :)
