Leading up to its release this past October, WWE 2K19 promised gamers access to some legendary pro-wrestlers such as Rick Flair and Rey Mysterio. Another special bonus was none other than former UFC bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey. Well, if you didn’t pre-order the game but you wanted to play as those characters, you can purchase them right now.
The news was rolled out over on the WWE 2K website, where 2K Games announced that the DLC packs are currently available featuring Ronda Rousey, Rey Mysterio, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, the Undertaker, and special editions of both Ric Flair and Charlotte Flair.
The DLC packs for WWE 2K19 are available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and on Steam for PC for $7.99 each.
The DLC packs also come with more than just the playable characters. You’ll also be able to play in new arenas as well, including the Starrcade 1983 arena.
But, the DLC is more than just filling out the already expansive roster in WWE 2K19 for home consoles and PC. There’s also brand new story content for players to battle through, including a specialized Tower for Ronda Rousey, where players will follow Ronda’s journey into the WWE battle against five opponents while earning in-game currency to unlock additional content.
There’s also a special Tower story for Rey Mysterio as well. After departing from the WWE back in 2015, Mysterio returned to form at the WWE in 2018, just in time to make the cut in 2K Games’ latest wrestling outing. As Mysterio, players will have to defeat five opponents, including one of Rey’s best friends and biggest rivals, Batista… yes, the same one from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
Both Rey Mysterio and Ronda Rousey are packed into the DLC known as the Ronda Rousey & Rey Mysterio Pack. Separate from that pack is the Wooooo! Edition Pack, which, as mentioned, contains the new arena and the special costumes for Ric Flair and Charlotte Flair, along with the other legendary superstars from specific eras, such as the 2002 rendition of the Undertaker, and the 1980s versions of Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes, and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat.
There are also additional DLC packs available for the game as well, including the Accelerator pack for $4.99 that allows you to quickly unlock all the content in the game save for the DLC unlockables. You can also have all your custom characters instantly upgraded with all their overall attributes and rankings without having to actually play through WWE 2K19 to level them up.
There will also be new DLC made available, such as the New Moves Pack for $3.99 and the Rising Stars Pack, which will feature superstars from the NXT brand for $9.99. And, finally, there’s the Titans Pack, which will be available for $9.99, and features returning superstars like EC3 and Bobby Lashley.
Alternatively, you can gain access to all of this content for $29.99 if you purchase the season pass for WWE 2K19.
