WWE 2K17 is just around the corner, so 2K Games is wasting no time letting fans know all the additional WWE goodness that will be on the way once the game does arrive on store shelves.
The publisher has just revealed all of WWE 2K17's DLC content, content that Visual Concepts President Greg Thomas says celebrates the past, present and future of the WWE.
Indeed, the game's DLC is broken down into several distinct packs. One of them is the "Future Stars Pack," which adds playable WWE and NXT superstars like Austin Aries, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Mojo Rawley and Tye Dillinger. The Future Stars Pack will retail for $8.99.

Last but not least when it comes to playable wrestlers is the "NXT Enhancement" and "NXT Legacy" Packs. The enhancement pack adds Apollo Crews, Nia Jax and Shinsuke Nakamura while also adding a 50 percent boost in points while competing in NXT during MyCareer. The NXT Legacy pack simply adds new wrestlers in the form of Apollo Crews, Nia Jax and Shinsuke Nakamura. The NXT Enhancement Pack will retail for $9.99 while the NXT Legacy pack sells for $4.99. Both packs will not be available on Xbox 360 or PS3.
