WWE 2K23 will be released on March 17th, with John Cena on the cover of all three editions.
WWE 2K23, which will be available on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X and S, and PC, will commemorate Cena’s 20th anniversary as a wrestling superstar by featuring him on three covers.
While the Standard Edition ($59.99) of WWE 2K23 will be available on March 17, the Deluxe Edition ($99.99) and Icon Edition ($119.99) will be available on March 14. On March 17, a Cross-Gen Edition of the game will be available for $69.99, which includes both previous and current generation versions.
WWE 2K23 promises several franchise advancements as well. The introduction of an official WarGames mode allows players to engage in intense three versus three and four versus four matches, either in single-player or multiplayer; and other modes such as MyGM, MyFACTION, MyRISE, Universe, and Creation Suite have also been expanded.
All of the above are included in the Standard and Cross-Gen versions of the game, while the Deluxe Edition also includes the Bad Bunny bonus pack as well as the Season Pass, which will eventually add five post-launch DLC packs to WWE 2K23.
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, is included in the Icon Edition. It also includes three Deluxe Premium Launch MyFACTION Card Packs and an Emerald Paul Heyman MyFACTION Manager Card.
Players who preorder the game will also receive the Bad Bunny Bonus Pack, which includes Bad Bunny as a playable character as well as a Ruby tier Bad Bunny MyFACTION card.
“It’s an honour to be able to tell the story of my career through the WWE 2K23 Showcase,” Cena said. “With this concept, 2K has done an excellent job of capturing and strengthening the WWE 2K franchise.”
