By Jonathan Barnes, 4 years ago
With a wealth of superstars over a lifetime of sports-entertainment action, gamers had to expect a wealth of robust DLC packages for THQ and Yuke's upcoming WWE '13. Without further ado, let's dispense with the details, before we saturate your eyes with some screens and a new trailer.

Now I can tell what all of you are thinking, you're thinking:
Holy *insert deity of choice*, obj, that is a metric crap-ton of DLC! I am a passionate fan of the WWE, but those packages, purchased individually will cost me a small fortune of MSP. Why don't these developers and publishers think about me, the little guy?
I'm glad you asked, value-conscious gamer. Fortunately for you, those kind budget managers at THQ are offering you a sweet deal on all of that juicy digital content with the WWE '13 "Fan Axxess Program" (note: the extra "x" is to show how seriously extreme this deal is).

Fan Axxess Program
For a one-time purchase cost of 1600 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360, a savings of more than 10 percent versus individual content purchases, consumers will receive the following items:

* Fan Axxess Program Exclusive: Legendary WWE Superstars Diamond Dallas Page and Goldust

* All Content Groups: "Attitude Era" Superstars Pack, WWE Superstars Pack and You're Welcome in Five Languages Pack

* Online Badge
Once again, I can tell what you're thinking. You're thinking:
Hang on a second, obj, that sounds a lot like one of those "Season Pass" things I've heard so much about.
Right you are, gamer... right you are.

To distract you from that fact, THQ has a boat-load of "steroid-enhanced" screenshots. I kid you not, that's what the press release called them.

I will grant you one thing. Still images do not do those "steroid-enhanced" images justice. So here's a trailer that (for some reason) doesn't show the negative effects of steroid abuse.



WWE '13 will be available starting on October 30th in the States and November 2nd in the UK.
