It's 2017, so PC gamers are getting WWE 2K17 next month

By Melvyn Tan on Jan 13, 2017

If you like wrestling games on PC but think that WWE 2K16 doesn't sound so fashionable now that it's 2017, well good news: 2K have announced that WWE 2K17 - the lastest instalment of the WWE 2K series - is heading to PC on the 7th of February.

The PC version of the wrestling game will "mirror the in-game content" for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, which were released last October along with the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. Emphasizing the fair treatment, all of the DLCs that have been released for consoles to date will be available in the PC version "immediately at launch". Future DLC that are released after the PC launch will be available for PC "at a later time" however.

There'll be two editions of the game available: Standard and Deluxe. According to the PC release post on 2K's website, the Standard Edition will cost $49.99 while the Deluxe Edition costs $74.99. That'd make it around RM223 for the former and RM334.46 for the latter. On the other hand, the prices listed on Steam for Standard Edition and Deluxe Edition are RM169 and RM249 respectively (and are also currently 10% and 15% off respectively).

The biggest difference between the two editions is that the Deluxe Edition comes with the Season Pass included, which will give players access to things like the NXT Enhancement Pack, Legends Pack, New Moves Pack and Future Stars Pack. The post lists the price to be RM133.76 ($29.99), but interestingly the Season Pass is absent from the Steam store page at time of writing.

The Standard Edition isn't exactly goodie-free though. Like the Deluxe Edition, it will have the Goldberg Pack included, which provides "access to two playable versions of legendary WCW and WWE star Bill Goldberg, as well as playable WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc arenas". The Goldberg Pack was originally a pre-order bonus for the console versions but became available later as paid DLC, so it's a nice inclusion for PC fans.

I assume that WWE 2K17 will get a PC launch trailer when the time comes, but in the meantime here's last year's launch trailer for consoles. Enjoy.
