2K defines WWE 2K18’s Season Pass and DLC plans

Looking for downloadable wrestlers in 2K’s upcoming WWE 2K18? Well there are some, along with a bunch of additional content set for post-launch.

Hit my music

WWE 2K18 seems to be a pretty big game already in terms of playable characters. The upcoming grappler from 2K Sports is loaded with both current and classic WWE superstars. The stable has a little something for really any generation of WWE fan, and as a fan of the 80s and 90s Fed, I’m digging it. And this is coming from someone who’s not played one of 2K’s WWE titles in years.

But enough about the main game, let’s talk DLC. Frankly, it doesn’t include all that many wrestlers. There’s other stuff in there to be sure, and there are some decent downloadable fighters, but not all that many.

Maybe that’s a big deal for you, and maybe it isn’t. WWE 2K18 arrives for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC on October 17th. The Switch version has no date as of yet, but will also hit they Fall.

Here’s how the DLC plan shakes out.
