Gamers can now bow down to The King.
2K has released its third DLC for WWE 2K23 today. The Race to NXT pack is headlined by Harley Race, a WWE Hall of Famer, the first-ever United States Champion, former King of the Ring, and widely acknowledged as one of the toughest competitors to ever step into the squared circle. He is making his WWE 2K franchise debut. Race is joined by four rising NXT Superstars also making their franchise debuts: Tony D’Angelo, the tough as nails leader of “The Family,” Ivy Nile, the powerhouse female face of Diamond Mine, Wendy Choo, the perpetually tired fan-favorite and Trick Williams the brash right-hand man to NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes.
These Superstars bring more than 50 new moves and taunts into the game, which can also be used for custom Superstars in the creation suite. Each playable Superstar also comes with their own MyFACTION card and DLC is available for individual purchase or as part of Season Pass, Deluxe Edition and Icon Edition of WWE 2K23.
Also ongoing this month in WWE 2K23’s MyFACTION game mode is an event pitting “The Island” against “The Dungeon.” Through June 21, a series of unique match-ups will challenge players to step into the boots of several members of the legendary Anoaʻi wrestling family to take on members of the prestigious Hart wrestling family. The ultimate prize of an Amethyst Solo Sikoa card awaits those able to conquer the event. In addition, the Amethyst Token Market will open June 16, followed by a WWE SuperCard themed Live Event rewarding an Amethyst Ricochet card on June 17, plus the Money In The Bank-themed “Cash-In Collective” card collection and a Live Event rewarding an Amethyst Eddie Guerrero card, both on June 23, offering an array of powerful new cards to add to players’ factions. Also, the Faction Wars ladder will be extended on June 23 to offer even more challenges.
Two additional DLC packs will be released in the months to come, including the Revel with Wyatt Pack (July 19), and the Bad News U Pack (August 16). The WWE 2K23 Standard and Icon Editions are currently on sale for 33% off on Xbox through July 3, while Deluxe Edition will be on sale for 33% off via Xbox’s Deals with Gold June 27 through July 3, and 33% off on PlayStation platforms June 21 through July 5th .
