The following press release and video explain the $19.99 “season pass” that will be available for Watch_Dogs post-release. Essentially, it will give players access to new DLC content as it is released, and save them around 25% on the content compared to if they paid for each piece separately. The DLC will include a new single-player campaign, game mode, new missions, weapons, outfits, and more.
Unfortunately, the press release doesn’t mention the Wii U version. Ubisoft has recently confirmed that the game will still be coming to the console, albeit later on in the year.
