In just over a week, 2K Sports will release its first WWE title. WWE 2K14 development moved from THQ following that publisher's demise, and based on our previews, things are looking great.

As has become custom over the past couple of years, WWE 2K14 will be supported by post-launch content in the form of new superstars and divas, customization options, and moves. Here's what your $19.99 will get you:

WWE Superstars and Moves

  • Superstars: Fandango, Big E Langston
  • Divas: Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Summer Rae

Our Take
If publishers are going to offer season passes, this is the way to do it. Too often, the content is a mystery, even long after the original game has been released. In this case, you know what you're getting, and there is a lot of fan service here.
