I made the Wii U Batman Arkham Origins thread mainly due to the developer news, but there's no AC4 Wii U thread, so I thought hey, if the Batman thread served it's purpose, why not do one for AC4 since no one else did?

12 minute Wii U gameplay:

I'll post some official browser screens courtesy of Wii U version owners:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tk9lto1l5WQ

The framerate and lag is NOT THE GAME, everyone's reported there is no such lag and issues, and I believe the uploader in the comments confirmed it's the video capture, NOT THE GAME ITSELF!!!

If anyone would be so kind to provide a comparison summary between the other versions, it will be added here. :)

Cool, any improvements from AC3 performance-wise or about the same? I bought AC3 on the Wii U.

I would've bought this version if it wasn't for the fact that it got delayed in Europe, so I bought the 360 version instead.

You did well, Op. With just one or two reviews for Wii U and no DF comparison, this forum is actually one of the few sources of information for the Wii U version of the game. I hope we will get better video and more screenshots.. Makes the wait for the European version easier.

Can you make a gif of the water in the Wii U vid for comparison?

Hell, we need comparison shots, like shots that match DF's PS360 screens.

The water looks the same as the PS360 as far as I could see in the vids.

The image is DX11 water, which will be for ps4, xbone and pc.

I'll be interested in seeing if the framerates have improved, 3 on the U was hitting 20, 22, 24 quite a bit in scenes the PS360 were fine in

Want to say that Ubi did a great job with the sea in this game. Sailing through a storm is intense!

Framerate seems a bit better than the AC3 port but still goes to the mid-20's when running around the first city (Havana) and bottoms out around 20 during heavy action.

*edit* Progressed a bit further and framerate seems to hold pretty well at 30fps out at sea and near 30fps the second town Nassau. The game is a lot of fun at this point. Really enjoying the sailing and the pirate themes.

Looks good. I'm probably going to pick this up on the Wii U over the Xbox 360 version.

I enjoyed having the map on the screen for ACIII, and I was wondering how much you could zoom in and out. Seems like an improvement, though I still wish Ubisoft did more with the GamePad. I'll take it though.

Yeah I'm thinking of doing Ghosts' Wii U thread (3rd time's the charm!), essentially in the same way as here.

I did, but there was no mention about its contents. Splinter Cell Blacklist Wii U also had a special (forget the name) edition. I looked at the regular edition, ZERO difference on the back.

Edit: SCB Wii U Special Edition:

Uploader said this one just came with DLC?

Weird as AC4 Wii U apparently has no DLC? Maybe they'll add it later, it took them awhile to put out AC3's DLC apparently.

Pre-launch specs, you may not have been around, but there were hints that Wii U between 2011-2012 was going through a lot of iterations of dev kits and alterations of specs, each larger than the last. It's likely they weren't able to be properly prepared.

Also potential for rushing for launch.

Hope it dosent have the same framerate issue as the PS3 version I played today. It was annoying...the framerate was going down as soon then more then 3 people were on the screen at once. But what was the worst part were the loading times. It took 8 (!!) minutes till we could start the game. So...what about these two things in the Wii U version? I bought AC 3 on the Wii U and would consider to buy this one if it is any good.
