‘WWE 2K18’ season pass, DLC details announced

Before getting into the announcement of DLC superstars and the “WWE 2K18” season pass info, take a moment and check out the latest TV spot above. It debuted during No Mercy and features rhymes by Snoop Dogg himself. It’s pretty cool.

Now on to the important stuff. The highlight of this year’s crop of DLC characters is The Hardy Boyz who, along with Beth Phoenix and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, will be available in the Enduring Icons DLC pack for $9.99.

Those wanting to “walk with Elias” will be delighted to hear that everyone’s favorite drifter is included in the NXT Generation pack, along with Aleister Black, Drew McIntyre, Lars Sullivan and Ruby Riot. That pack will also be available for $9.99.

My personal favorite piece of DLC, the Accelerator pack, also returns. For $4.99, this grants players access to all unlockable content (minus DLC, of course) and the ability to adjust ratings and attributes for all characters. I’m pretty stingy when it comes to paying extra for DLC, but this is one I purchase every year. It’s worth every penny.

Other DLC packs include the MyPlayer Kickstart ($9.99), which lets you boost your created character’s stats, and the New Moves pack ($3.99), which includes moves like Tye Dillinger’s Tie Breaker and Kassius (You’ll Always Be Chris Hero To Me, Dang It!) Ohno’s Crash Landing.

Players looking to save a little coin can opt to purchase the Season Pass, which includes all of the aforementioned DLC packs for $29.99, a savings of more than 20 percent.

“WWE 2K18” launches Oct. 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A Nintendo Switch version will launch later this year.
