Watch Dogs, the 2013 title where a smart phone became potent weaponry, is getting new downloadable content (DLC), entitled Bad Blood. And, to promote the release of the upcoming DLC, Ubisoft will be streaming it live on their official Twitch channel.

The stream will start today at 1 PM EDT. The developer is inviting fans to tweet them questions about the DLC to answer during the preview.

Set in cyber punk Chicago, Watch Dogs is the story of Aiden Pearce, who uses stealth and smart phone hacking to outwit enemies. Media outlets often compared Watch Dogs to Ubisoft's flagship franchise, Assassin's Creed.

Pearce, however, will not be the main character in Bad Blood.

"Bad Blood--the first piece of DLC for Watch Dogs--addresses that problem head on, switching out Pearce in favour of supporting character Raymond 'T-Bone' Kenney," IGN reported, "If you played through the original campaign, you'll definitely remember him--he's the laid-back hacker who helped design ctOS's code back in the day before turning whistle-blower."

In addition to a character change, the story will be more light-hearted in Bad Blood, according to Ubiblog. And it features T-Bone trying to ride off into the sunset.

But, before he escapes the windy city, he needs to attend to a few tasks.

If you still have questions for the developers, you can view their stream here when it starts at 1 PM EDT.
