WWE 2K19 Pre-Order Characters Available Now For Purchase
Time to throw down in the ring as some new characters.
If you missed out on the pre-order bonuses for WWE 2K19, you can pick them up as downloadable content. Two packs, one featuring Ronda Rousey and Rey Mysterio and the other featuring Ric Flair, are available for purchase separately.
The Ronda Rousey & Rey Mysterio Pack and the Wooooo! Edition Pack (featuring Ric Flair) are available across PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Previously Rousey and Mysterio were only available for pre-orders and Ric Flair was available in the Collector's Edition for $130. 2K also recently teased an upcoming Titans Pack but hasn't detailed a release date for it yet.
GameSpot's WWE 2K19 review appreciated the engaging MyCareer mode and stories, and the various quality-of-life tweaks, but lamented its slow character progression and some notable absentees from the roster. In particular, critic Richard Wakeling said that players are out-of-luck for Rey Mysterio or Rousey, who is the current Raw Women's Champion, unless they pre-ordered.
"Despite its flaws, WWE 2K19 is a step in the right direction for the long-running series," Wakeling wrote. "After two years toiling away with a dearth of interesting single-player content, the introduction of an engaging career mode is a welcome sight that finally captures some of the personality pro wrestling is partly built upon. The in-ring action is still inconsistent and will be as divisive as ever, but it's easier to stomach when the game surrounding the wrestling action gives you more reasons to play."
