WWE 2K24 gets extreme with latest DLC drop

A whole lot of 90s nostalgia arrives (officially) today for WWE 2K24, along with current WWE superstar CM Punk.

Hell has frozen over

Yes, CM Punk technically headlines the new ECW Punk Pack DLC for WWE 2K24, but there’s a heck of a lot more to it than just the modern star. Packed in right along with him are some of the greatest ECW superstars of all time, including The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von), the Sandman, Terry Funk, and Paul Heyman as a Manager card (for MyFACTION).

While all of those guys are probably best known for their ECW runs, they’re all massive stars otherwise as well. Appearances for the Dudleys include the WWE of course, and both Funk and Sandman have appeared as a part of multiple brands.

So if you’ve been patiently waiting for a hefty dose of new stars for your copy of WWE 2K24, then you might want to grab a download.

Joining CM Punk in the ECW Punk Pack are WWE Hall of Fame tag team The Dudley BoyzSandmanTerry Funk, and an ECW Paul Heyman Manager MyFACTION card. Recognized as the most decorated tag team in WWE history with 18 combined World Tag Team Championship reigns across WWE, ECW, and WCW titles, Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley, the Dudley Boyz are among the toughest brawlers to ever step foot in the squared circle. Often known as the “Hardcore Icon,” The Sandman is a five-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion and former ECW World Tag Team Champion, notorious for unleashing chaos in and out of the ring with his signature kendo stick. A two-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion, ECW Television Champion, WWE World Tag Team Champion, and WWE Hall of Famer, Terry Funk wrestled across five decades, specializing in the hardcore, extreme style that gave ECW its name. Rounding out the pack is a special ECW Paul Heyman Manager MyFACTION card, celebrating the founder of ECW and one of the greatest minds in the history of professional wrestling. These Superstars bring 46 new moves and taunts into the game, which can also be used for custom Superstars in the creation suite. Each playable Superstar also comes with their own MyFACTION card. ECW Punk Pack is available for individual purchase, or as part of Season Pass, which is included in the Deluxe Edition, and Forty Years of WrestleMania Edition of WWE 2K24.

2K Games press release

Along with all of the above too, fans will find “new weapons, including a barbed wire baseball bat, light tube, and wooden door”. Not enough extreme for you? All you can also look for locker code ECWCHAMPS to be active from May 15th through the 31st, which will grant access to cards for Bobby Lashley, Rob Van Dam, and Kane. We’re not sure how the bookended superstars fit into the theme, but you can’t get to much more E-C-Dub than R-V-D.

Also coming this month

Fans looking for even more to add to their WWE 2K24 experiences will find the Punches and Promos pack landing this month too. For use in MyFACTION mode, Punches and Promos will bring the gem class tier Amethyst, plus cards of Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and a Persona Card of “The Final Boss” version of The Rock. That last one will be usable in all modes of play, once unlocked.

Speaking of, a Persona Card of Roman Reigns with his man-bun will “also be available as an earnable Live Event reward”. So if you wanted to, you could go after both Bloodline headliners and create one of the most current versions of the stable.

There’s one more too, as another Live Event will deliver a Mattel “Ichiban” Hulk Hogan. This is exactly what it sounds like, dropping another one of the popular ‘action figure’ superstar variants to add to your roster. So watch for all of that as well, as we roll through the rest of the month.

*Base game, 2K Account and Internet connection required to access DLC content. Online play including MyFACTION requires 2K Account and Internet connection. Console online play requires separate paid subscription. Terms apply. 

**Based on average Metacritic ratings on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X as of April 7, 2024.
