Ubisoft Announces Watch_Dogs Bad Blood DLC

ubisoft canadaUbisoft has announced that Watch_Dogs Bad Blood, a new downloadable piece of content for Watch_Dogs, the record-breaking open-world action game that has sold-in more than 8 million units, will release on September 23 for season pass holders and September 30 for all other players.
