WWE 2K14 is being praised for its extensive roster, and now gamers are able to play as some of the cornerstone figures of WWE's history in the '80s, a time where the company really began to take off.
'80s superstar wrestlers included in the game are: Andre the Giant, Bret Hart, Curt Henning, Hulk Hogan, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, Ric Flair, "Ravishing" Rick Rude, Ricky Steamboat, Sgt. Slaughter, Shawn Michaels, Ted DiBiase "Million Dollar Man," and Ultimate Warrior.
Some of these figures singlehandedly made wrestling what it is today because of the spectacle of them as huge hulking men and their larger than life outside-the-ring personas.
Recreating classic matches of Andre the Giant vs Hulk Hogan or Ultimate Warrior and Macho Man is an amazing time to be had in a video game. Although the infamous Montreal Screw Job happened in the late ;'90s, a match between Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon will be very pleasing to any long-time wrestling fan.
Going even further back, the game has Bruno Sammartino, Big John Studd, Dusty Rhodes, and King Kong Bundy.
2K14 will be getting a DLC in the next upcoming months that will introduce the "New World Order" to gamers who have been waiting for this moment for years.
The pack is called, "nWo and Accelerator," which will give gamers the characters of the nWo faction: Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Macho Man Randy Savage, Hollywood Hogan, and more. It will sell for $9 outside of the season pass. The "Accelerator" portion of the pack will unlock all of the items and customizable attributes.
The season pass will run $20 and will include the three upcoming expansion packs that will feature new characters, items, and moves.
In December, the "WWE Superstars and Moves Pack" will include wrestling stars the Bella Twins, Fandango with Summer Rae, and Big E Langston reports Gamespot. Also, included will be 30 more moves and taunts, and will run for $8 outside of the season pass.
The last pack, coming in the new year, "WWE Legends and Creations Pack" will include lots of Hall of Fame wrestlers such as Bruno Sammartino, Dusty Rhodes, Jake the Snake Roberts, and more. It will be $9 outside of the bundle, and also include the Custom Superstar Parts Pack, which will include 15 parts to customize characters.
The game launched on Oct. 29 in North America, and Nov.1 internationally.
