WWE 2K15 First DLC Pack Revives WCW
World Championship Wrestling (WCW) becomes part of the WWE 2K15 universe today as the first DLC packs for this year’s grapple game become available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3.
The WCW Pack costing £6.39 is the crown jewel in the first wave of downloadable content and features legends of the then World Wrestling Federation’s lead rival organisation throughout the nineties including 3-time champion turned fitness guru Diamond Dallas Page, Bam Bam Bigelow, Lex Luger, Fit Finlay and Lord Steven Regal who would later become best known as the WWE’s sneering British aristocrat William Regal.
Another pack available today is an Accelerator for £1.59 which unlocks all characters, title belts and arenas found in game, but excluding the pay-to-download stuff. And for those who missed out on the Sting and Hulk Hogan pre-order bonus characters they can now be bought for £2.39 with each pack including two versions of their respective wrestling icon.
It’s good to finally have the option to get additional playable characters when the WWE 2K15 game offered little variety out of the box, although there’s a couple in there that we see won’t be getting much ring time after the initial novelty of a marginally increased roster wears off.
But maybe this first DLC will offer just enough muscle to satisfy grapple fans this side of the pond while we continue to endure the gruellingly long wait before the promised WWE Network arrives?
The sport entertainment company’s CEO Vince McMahon recently appeared on a podcast with Attitude Era legend ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and addressed the delay for the 24/7 streaming platform in reaching the UK and confirmed it will happen in early 2015. Ironically the show was broadcast only on the WWE Network.
