WWE 2K18 will wrestle its way onto PC the same day as console

wwe 2k18 pc release date

In a series first, WWE 2K18 will be launching for PC the same day as its console brethren, giving you all the elbow drops, suplexes, and dropkicks you could possibly want on your home computer.

There’s one little caveat in that you won’t get early access with the Deluxe Edition on PC, as the console players will. However, you will get playable versions of Batista and Rob Van Dam, and a pair of bonus John Cenas from WrestleMania 26 and ECW One Night Stand. I can only hope the latter comes with a bonus “crowd riot” animation when he wins. The Deluxe Edition also includes the Season Pass, but details on what it includes have not yet been revealed.

Preordering either version will get you Kurt Angle in “American Hero” and “Wrestling Machine” personas, though sadly no “I’m totally Jason Jordan’s dad” version.

No word yet on whether finishing moves are as unbalanced as they were at No Mercy last night, with a single spear exceeding the power of four AAs, or a single F5 enough to stop the momentum of your company’s biggest rising star.

WWE 2K18 launches October 17 on Steam, with the standard version priced at $59.99 / £39.99 / €49.99, or $89.99 / £60.99 / €74.99 for the Deluxe Edition.
