WWE 2K18 NXT Generation DLC Is Now Available

A collection of WWE 2K18 DLC characters.

Wrestling fans looking to expand their WWE 2K18 roster will be happy to know that the latest crop of combatants is ready to roll. The NXT Generation Pack is officially here.

Over on the WWE 2K blog, they've announced a collection of five new wrestlers are being introduced to the latest iteration of the game. This comes shortly after the NXT TakeOver: WarGames event and, appropriately enough, the collection is called the NXT Generation Pack. Huh, it's almost like they planned that out or something. Anyway, you can grab the pack now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC.

In the NXT pack you'll get your hands on the likes of Ruby Riot, Lars Sullivan, Aleister Black, Elias and Drew McIntyre. If you purchased the Deluxe Edition or Cena (Nuff) Edition of WWE 2K18, then you'll be able to download the latest content at no extra charge. The same goes for those of you who picked up the season pass separately. Otherwise, you can grab this latest DLC for $9.99 on its own.

It's been a pretty busy post-launch calendar for WWE 2K18, with all sorts of new characters and modes being introduced into the game over recent months. Previous packs included the likes of Kurt Angle and John Cena, as well as "Accelarator" content that allowed players to unlock pretty much everything right out of the gate. If you picked up the Enduring Icons pack already, then you have access to the Hardy Boyz, Beth Phoenix and old-school legends, The Rock 'n' Roll Express. There was also a MyPlayer DLC pack geared at tweaking your personal avatar, as well as a pack that introduced some new in-game moves.

The last pack listed under the season pass info is for the NXT Generation Pack so, unless we hear otherwise, it seems like this might be the final DLC for the time being. Then again, maybe 2K is only listing current packs, with plans to add more as they become available.

While this seems like a heck of a lot of DLC, it's not like the core game can be accused of being skimpy. WWE 2K18 has a large roster of grapplers on the disc, as well as a bevy of gameplay modes and events to work through.

Still, we'd be interested in hearing what the players think. Were you happy with the core WWE 2K18 experience or does it feel like the game is being finished through DLC? Are there any other wrestlers you'd like to see in a future release? Feel free to drop your thoughts in the comments below.
