WWE 2K17: All the DLC Revealed
A lot of extra content is coming.
This includes things like the Accelerator ($5), which unlocks all content in the virtual currency section (including wrestlers and legends), but not DLC, and also gives players "control over ranking and attributes" for all characters.
Also offered is the Future Stars Pack ($9), which comes with wrestlers like Austin Aries, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Mojo Rawley, and Tye Dillinger. The Hall of Fame Showcase add-on ($10), meanwhile, includes famous bouts including Cactus Jack & Diamond Dallas Page vs. The Fabulous Freebirds from 1992's WCW Saturday Night event. Also in the pack is the Ivory vs. Jacqueline fight from SmackDown 2000 and Big Boss Man vs. Big Show from Armageddon 1999.
WWE 2K17 DLC also includes The Legends Pack ($9), which features wrestlers like Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, Eddie Guerrero, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine, Sycho Sid, and Tatanka. The New Moves Pack ($4), meanwhile, adds moves like the Swingout Neckbreaker and the Elbro Drop. Additionally, the NXT Enhancement Pack ($10) adds characters like Apollo Crews, Nia Jax, and Shinsuke Nakamura to the roster and receive bonus points when competing in NXT during MyCareer mode. This is offered only on PS4 and Xbox One, but last-generation players can pick up the three wrestlers, but not the MyCareer bonuses, through the NXT Legacy Pack.
You can see a full rundown of WWE 2K17's DLC offerings below, as written by 2K.
There will also be a season pass offered, which includes the Accelerator, Future Stars Pack, Hall of Fame Showcase, Legends Pack, and New Moves Pack for $30. If you bought everything separately, it would cost you $37, so if you're sure you want all of that, the season pass is the economical choice.
2K also today announced the WWE 2K17 digital deluxe edition. This $90 bundle, which is available for PS4 and Xbox One digitally, comes with a copy of the game and the season pass. It also comes with MyPlayer Kick Start offerings for WWE 2K17 and last year's WWE 2K16. The WWE 2K16 Kick Start is available immediately after you preorder WWE 2K17. Also included in the digital deluxe edition is the Goldberg Pack, which gives you two versions of Bill Goldberg, as well as the WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc arenas. Lastly, it comes with a PS4 theme that unlocks immediately after you preorder.
