“I’m a bit of a WWE historian myself, and one of the things I’m most excited about is being able to play as the past, present and future of WWE,” said WWE Superstar Seth Rollins. “Every year, the WWE 2K franchise gives a sample of that through downloadable content, whether it’s great WWE Legends and rivalries of the past or the latest additions to the NXT roster. If you buy WWE 2K16 on PC though, you get all of that awesome DLC content included free of charge. Yeah, you read that correctly: the DLC is free.
“We are always looking to expand WWE 2K’s offerings on additional platforms and were encouraged by last year’s PC franchise debut,” said Greg Thomas, President at Visual Concepts. “WWE 2K16’s power-packed features and free downloadable content are a great combination for the PC platform and help us reach even more WWE 2K fans around the world.”
