Wrasslin’ is big business, as are the videogames made to simulate the best in sports entertainment. 2K’s been at the helm of WWE games for the past couple of years, with NBA 2K developer Visual Concepts working in conjunction with stalwart WWE maker Yukes to craft the game.

They haven’t been great games, but I’m looking forward to this latest one, primarily because the blasted reversal system’s finally been tweaked – which should make it a little less about lightning fast reflexes and guesswork, and make it a little more skilful.

The game, as is the norm for games of its ilk, will get a host of downloadable content, and yes, a season pass. What’s coming to the game though?

This:

Accelerator
•    Players will gain instant access to all unlockable content available in the game (excluding downloadable content);
•    The Accelerator will be available for a suggested price of $1.99.

MyPlayer KickStart (PS4™ system and Xbox One Exclusive)
•    Players will gain instant access to boost created Superstar ratings and attributes in the game’s MyCareer mode;
•    MyPlayer KickStart will be available for a suggested price of $9.99.

Legends Pack
•    Playable WWE Legends: Big Boss Man, Dusty Rhodes, Lita, Mr. Perfect, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and Trish Stratus;
•    The Legends Pack will be available for a suggested price of $8.99.

2015 Hall of Fame Showcase
•    Playable matches include:
o    “Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. Jake “The Snake” Roberts;
o    Rikishi vs. The Rock;
o    Alundra Blayze vs. Paige;
o    Larry Zbyszko vs. Arn Anderson;
o    Tatsumi Fujinami vs. Ric Flair;
o    The Bushwhackers (Butch Miller and Luke  Williams) vs. The Natural Disasters (Typhoon and Earthquake);
o    The Outsiders (Kevin Nash and Scott Hall) vs. Harlem Heat (Booker T and Stevie Ray);
•    The 2015 Hall of Fame Showcase will be available for a suggested price of $9.99.

•    The New Moves Pack will be available for a suggested price of $3.99.

Future Stars Pack
•    Playable NXT Superstars: Samoa Joe, Diego, Fernando, Blake and Murphy;
•    The Future Stars Pack will be available for a suggested price of $7.99.

The season pass, as you’d imagine, gives you all of this content other than the MyPlayer Kickstart for a discounted price. Pay just $24.99 for :

  • Accelerator (access to all unlockable content available in the game);
  • Legends Pack;2015 Hall of Fame Showcase
  • New Moves Pacck

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Lardus-For the Emperor!

    Wow, that is a lot of “extra” content…some of which should actually be un-lockable in the game without spending moneys…

  • 40 Insane Frogs

    I think I’d rather get drunk and watch WWE Divas…. :/

  • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

    THIS IS WWE MONEYMAKER…Uh uh..Wrestling?

  • VampyreSquirrel

    As tempting as this purchase is, I will wait a while before diving into the ring.

    • Grand Admiral Chief

      It might…sting

      • VampyreSquirrel

        You Orton worry, the Undertaker is on call already…

        • Grand Admiral Chief

          I heard he only takes calls after 3:16

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Yeah but it’s best when you get the 619, he’s quite Mysterio

          • Sir GIF Sexy

            Okay, come on. Come on. We’ve Cena ‘nough.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Ah, you see me Rollins and you be hating

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Some people just don’t have a Hart.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            They’re not ready for the Big Show.

          • Sir GIF Sexy

            These puns have got me on the Edge. I can Hardy contain my rage.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            At least we’re all on the same Paige.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Kane’t you Barrett anymore?

          • Sir GIF Sexy

            That’s just Stone Cold, man. Stone Cold.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I Konnor help myself. Hang on, I’ll be Ryback
