WWE 2K17 DLC updates: new content renews Freebird, Von Erich rivalry

I haven’t been totally sold on plunking down for this year’s edition, but the latest WWE 2K17 DLC updates definitely has me considering it now.

2kSports revealed the full slate of DLC following the game’s release next month. There’s a lot of worthwhile additions. Unlike last year, 2KSports seems to be on top of the main players in the WWE and has them all in the game.

As usual, the Hall of Fame showcase is most intriguing to me. That mode lets players re-enact the Freebirds vs Von Erich rivalry. I’m hoping at some point, 2KSports completes the factions and adds David Von Erich and Terry Gordy. It seems weird to have 2/3 of the teams. Other fun match-ups pit Sting vs Bret Hart from WCW Halloween Havoc 1998. With cover star Goldberg in this year’s edition, this might be the deepest WCW roster yet.

Here’s the full slate of features and additional characters:
