Returning WWE fan-favourite CM Punk is the headline addition of the first WWE 2K24 DLC pack, releasing this coming Wednesday, 15th May 2024. His first appearance in the games since WWE 2K15, the wrestler will be part of the ECW Punk Pack, which also includes tag-team partners Bubba Ray Dudley, D-Von Dudley, and Sandman and Terry Funk.

After the first DLC drop, another four expansions will arrive between June and November, each themed around different personalities. Post Malone and his friends are part of the second pack, Pat McAfee is in the third on 24th July, a Global Superstars Pack bolsters the roster further in September, and then a final WCW Pack concludes things in November.

If you bought either the Deluxe or Forty Years of WrestleMania versions of WWE 2K24, then you already own the season pass that'll grant you access to CM Punk and the four other packs. If not, the season pass costs £32.99 / $39.99. In previous instalments, individual DLC packs have cost £8.99 / $9.99, so you could acquire CM Punk that way also.

The WWE 2K games have been getting better and better after a dramatic dip in quality a handful of years ago, with WWE 2K24 considered "another confident entry" in our 8/10-rated PS5 review. "The amount of content on offer is absolutely staggering, with grapple fans certain to delight in at least one of the many available modes and 200+ available Superstars," we concluded. "Some visual inconsistencies and a somewhat lacklustre WrestleMania Showcase let the side down, but beyond that, WWE 2K24 is another strong, if safe, entry in the 2K-driven WWE series."
