DLC Content
Online Axxess - 800MS points or FREE if you buy the game new via DLC code. This code is needed to play online. If you buy the game used you will have to pay 800MS points to download this code to play online after your 7 day trial is up.

Fan Axxess - 800MS points. This is the ultimate download for this game!  With this one purchase you gain the "Unlock All" which gives you everything in the game right away in case you don't feel like doing it yourself (separately for 80MS points and NOT unlockable in the game itself), you get the Superstar Attribute Editor (sold seperately for 80MS points and NOT unlockable in the game itself) so you can edit the attributes of any superstars to whatever you want. You also get both DLC2 and DLC3 technically free since together they'll cost 800MS points total. NOTE: does NOT include Bret Hart, he will be DLC for 80MS points later in the year)

DLC1 (comes with Online Axxess) - You also get Chris Masters, and an alt Halloween themed attire for Rey Mysterio and Kelly Kelly.

DLC2 (560MS points or "free" if you download Fan Axxess; Holiday Season) - British Bulldog, Lex Luger, Layla, Wade Barret, David Otunga, Justin Gabriel, Shad alt attire (current look), Shawn Michaels alt attire (classic hearts tights) and a playable NXT arena.

DLC3 (240MS points of "free" if you download Fan Axxess; Early 2011) - Alt attire for John Cena, Undertaker (American Badass), and CM Punk (masked), and the WCW Nitro Arena

Do not worry if you'd like to buy Fan Axxess, but want to unlock everything yourself. I too want to unlock everything on my own, but the good news is, when you download this, it just marks everything as paid, so you can get it all but it won't activate until you download it. So if you want all the DLC packs I suggest getting this as it will save you a couple bucks worth of points. I'm going to get it and just not use the "unlock all" feature.


So there you have it. This is just a little taste of the good stuff in this game. Stay tuned to the site because a week after release, you can expect a great review from me about my experiences through this game. I'll tell you all about the new WWE Universe mode, this year's Road to Wrestlemania, Match creator, Create-A-Wrestler mode (CAW), CAW community downloads, Story Designer, Highlight Reel and much more! If ya smeeeelllllll....What cooking.
