Watch Dogs Finally Releases on Wii U This Week

Watch Dogs finally ships for the Wii U this week and Nintendo has already put up some DLC content on its eShop.

Ubisoft’s open-world action-hacking game released for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in May last year – to a pretty rocky start if we all recall. The game was highly unoptimized on the PC, much like what we’ve seen with the recent Assassin’s Creed: Unity game.

While Ubisoft worked around the clock in fixing their mess, the already delayed Wii U version was just mentioned to be delayed further. The game was originally scheduled for release in November 2013. This delay came to a point when many believed the port to be cancelled.

In any case, the game is finally here and after such a long span of time it probably will launch without issues. Players can also head over to the eShop and download the Conspiracy DLC which will give access to an in-game mission where AI enemies are hunted down.

A second DLC pack is Access Granted which is a compilation of the pre-order bonus content that shipped across all versions. It includes new outfits, skills, and a trio of contract missions.

Watch Dogs will release on the Wii U worldwide on November 18 in the US, and November 21 in the UK. The game has so far shipped 9 million units worldwide.
