WWE 2K23’s launch is right around the corner, so the game’s makers have hit us with list of additional content they’ll have for sale after it drops on Mar. 17.

Downloadable content (DLC) and microtransactions are a huge part of then business plan for most of today’s video games, and WWE’s long-running franchise is no exception. 2K’s latest press release covers their first wave of post-release DLC packs, which you can use to upgrade the launch roster (which has already been tweaked since it was first announced), and get other perks:

Here’s the details:

Today, 2K unveiled the roadmap for post-launch content updates* in WWE® 2K23, featuring fan-favorite WWE Superstars, Legends and several rising NXT stars making their franchise debuts.
