A trio of new missions will be added to Watch Dogs today via the Access Granted pack, available to buy for those who haven’t yet splashed out for the Watch Dogs Season Pass.

The three additional single player missions will be accompanied by new weapons and perks previously exclusive to Season Pass and Deluxe Edition owners, including a new Biometric Rifle and the Driving Master boost…

The Palace, Signature Shot, and Breakthrough make up the three new missions which are available from Uplay via an update today; including a frenzied race against the clock during a police raid, and foiling a high-tech weapons smuggling outfit.

New weapons available in this Watch Dogs DLC include the Biometric Rifle mentioned earlier, as well as a the Auto-6 Pistol and a raft of new perks comprising the Blume Weapon Boost, Driving Master Boost, ATM Hack Boost, and a further Dedsec Battery Boost.

Those who’ve stumped up for the Season Pass will have had access to this content for the last week, while everyone else will be able to grab it now for £5.59. The content was previously included for those who forked out for the Deluxe Edition of Watch Dogs, so this means we're one step closer to getting our mitts on all of the content from the staggering nine different versions of Watch Dogs available. 

Still itching for some more Watch Dogs? Do you feel like you’re getting your money’s worth from the $20/£16 Watch Dogs Season Pass? As always, let us know below!

I have a question: does the Steam version of W_D update at certain times (e.g. the Day 1 Hotfix) or it only auto-patches for uPlay users?

im getting really tired of all this dlc stuff, sure its cheap enough. It used to be called mods, except mods were free and had 200% more things like weapons, cars, characters, game modes, gameplay ect and really enhanced the game to the point where people were like, "omw omw omw, have you played the soso mod, omw its awesome". But this is kinda sad.. I should really stop paying for 60% of a game..

GMOD has no DLC and without mods the game would be really boring :D

yeah, Gmod would be called Gbuy if it needed dlc's =P It is the community that supports gmod that made it so successful and unique. I guess its another pro of steam, the community downloads. I love how Gmod is a good example of how a ton of community made mods make something so simple so awesome.

WHAT! So this happens in every CoD game. You pre-order and get DLC that it says no one else will get and then BOOM! everyone gets it and you don't feel special. So annoying!

Every COD game? Yeah, I'd like to see what DLC was supposedly "exclusive" in COD 1. Or any COD for that matter.
They never said that the DLC was exclusive to pre-order. True, it was for a while, but it was a timed exclusive, not permanent.

They should just call this pack "the pre-order content we separated and gave out to a number of retailers" instead of "access granted", I mean the Biometric Rifle an Auto-6 are just re-skins of the ACR and Chroma.

it isn´t ubi fault that you can´t it on medium. I think you have to scan you pc on virus and malware. I run it at high at 40+ fps without big fps drops. never lower than 30. and you pc is better than mine.

i agree with teun2408, something else is cracking in the background messing up with your resources. Your pc slightly more powerful yet i can ultra and many more people with lower specs then you can still high the game.
