As if the WWE 2K17 roster wasn’t big enough already, promising the largest roster in the series’ history, 2K have revealed a bunch of DLC packs to come post-launch, which will add another 20 superstars to the list. These superstars will range from old classics from the good old days, to current WWE superstars. Let’s step into the ring and take a look!
Look forward to reliving the olden days with favourites such as Eddie Guerrero, Sycho Sid, Papa Shango (haven’t seen him since the SEGA Genesis/SNES days in a wrestling game!), Greg ‘The Hammer’ Valentine and more!
The asterisk (*) implies that the character is already included in the game, but a new costume will be available for them via DLC.
- Future Stars Pack ($8.99): Austin Aries, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Mojo Rawley, Tye Dillinger.
- Legends Pack ($8.99): Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake, Eddie Guerrero, Greg ‘The Hammer’ Valentine, Sycho Sid, Tatanka.
- Hall Of Fame showcase ($9.99): Albert, Big Boss Man*, Big Show*, Bret Hart*, Diamond Dallas Page*, Fabulous Freebirds (Michael Hayes, Buddy Roberts, Jimmy Garvin), The Godfather, Ivory, Jacqueline, Kevin and Kerry von Erich, Papa Shango, Ric Flair*, and Sting*.
Other stuff available to purchase separately, which will be part of the season pass as well, is the following:
- The Accelerator: No, not a new wrestler with pedals where his feet should be, but the ability to unlock all on-disc content from the outset, and change wrestler attributes and title rankings. ($4.99)
- MyPlayer Kick Start: Attributes boosts and access to the complete clothing catalogue for your created superstar in MyCareer mode. ($9.99)
- New Moves Pack: A stack of new slams, holds and suplexes and the like, such as Charlotte’s swingout neckbreaker and Samoa Joe’s face wash combo.
You can grab the season pass for $29.99, which will give you all of the DLC packs when they are released, as well as the above extras.
