New free content for the singleplayer mode will be available in a future update sometime in 2021, and will include:

Season Pass Content (Paid)
Players who acquire the Watch Dogs Legion Season Pass will get access to Watch Dogs Legion – Bloodline, a new storyline which features Aiden Pearce from the original Watch Dogs game and Wrench from Watch Dogs 2, both of which will be fully playable in the singleplayer campaign and online.
