'Watch Dogs 2' News & Updates: Season Pass Now Available! Ubisoft Explains Low Pre-Order Sales Of Game [VIDEO]


Two years have passed since the release of the original "Watch Dogs" and gamers still can't get enough of the open-world hacker video game. As the highly-anticipated sequel "Watch Dogs 2" is about to be released this month, Ubisoft has already made the game's Season Pass available to its fans. Moreover, the studio has shed some light on the current report of the game's pre-order sales, according to sources.

Fans can expect the latest installment "Watch Dogs 2" to be released this coming Nov. 15 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a follow up release on Nov. 29 for Micorosoft Windows. In light of this, Ubisoft has already made available in advance the Season Pass for the sequel, which costs 40 US dollars or 30 British pounds, Engadget reported.

The Season Pass for "Watch Dogs 2" will include five add-on packs, which will feature additional co-op difficulty settings, new cars, outfits, skins, missions and more, Engadget learned. The first three bundles will be released on the PlayStation 4 a month before other platforms of the game, and the remaining two will be added on the first day once the game is purchased by its fans.

It was stated in detail that one of the downloadable content will be the "T-Bone" bundle, which will be released on Dec. 13 for the PS4, Engadget noted. The bundle will showcase new clothes and a new co-op difficulty (Mayhem). It will even feature the truck of one of the franchise's character, Raymond "T-Bone" Kenney.

In other news, it was reported that the pre-order sales for "Watch Dogs 2" was said to be lower that what the studio expected, Gamespot learned. As such, CEO Yves Guillemot went on to state in an earnings call that they see it as a fantastic experience, despite the weak performance of the game's pre-order sales.

In addition, CFO Alain Martinez elaborated that the game's low pre-order sales shouldn't be a concer since it isn't the only measure to gauge the game's overall sales, Gamespot noted. Martinez went on to cite other games like "Rainbow Six Siege" and "The Division's" 1.4 update, which garnered success further along the way.

Despite the low sales of the game's pre-orders, fans are still excited for the release of "Watch Dogs 2" this month.
