As you probably know, the story takes place in an alternate history in which George Washington declares himself King of America after the success of the American Revolution and needs to be forcefully removed from office.
The press release says The Betrayal is available on the Xbox 360 and PC today, March 19th, and will be released on the PlayStation 3 tomorrow, March 20th. There is a brief statement at the end which says all DLC will be available on the Wii U eShop, but there is no indication of when it may arrive.
