WWE 2K23 is officially set to launch on 17 March 2023 and be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC via Steam with John Cena on the cover of all three editions.
WWE 2K23 will celebrate Cena’s 20th anniversary as a wrestling superstar by featuring him on the three covers.
While the Standard Edition ($59.99) arrives on March 17, the Deluxe Edition ($99.99) and Icon Edition ($119.99) of WWE 2K23 both launch early on March 14. A Cross-Gen Edition of the game will also be available for $69.99 on March 17, which comes with both previous and current generation versions.
WWE 2K23 also comes with several new playing modes. A refreshed 2K Showcase mode lets players revisit Cena’s most iconic matches with commentary from the man himself; the introduction of an official WarGames mode lets players engage in intense three versus three and four versus four matches, either in single-player or multiplayer; and other modes including MyGM, MyFACTION, MyRISE, Universe, and Creation Suite have also been expanded.
The Standard and Cross-Gen versions of the game include all of the above, while the Deluxe Edition also includes the Bad Bunny bonus pack alongside the Season Pass which will eventually add five post-launch DLC packs to WWE 2K23.
The Icon Edition includes everything in the Deluxe Edition plus the Ruthless Aggression Pack, which celebrates Cena by including his prototype character model, Leviathan Batista, developmental rookie versions of Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton, the John Cena Legacy Championship, and WrestleMania 22 Arena.
It also comes with an Emerald Paul Heyman MyFACTION Manager Card and three Deluxe Premium Launch MyFACTION Card Packs.
And if you want to pre-order, you got a bonus reward with a Bad Bunny Bonus Pack, which includes Bad Bunny as a playable character and a Ruby tier Bad Bunny MyFACTION card.
