WWE 2K22 DLC: A Complete Breakdown of New Characters and Features

WWE 2K23 dropped in March of this year, and it’s been quite a ride. Before that, though WWE 2K had a massive year with the release of the loaded DLC packs released throughout 2022 after WWE 2K22 landed. WWE 2K22 is still supported, and the released DLC brought some worth-revisting additions to the already bulging roster of playable characters. The game, from developer Visual Concepts and publisher 2K Games, is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|Series S, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. 

WWE 2K22 dropped in March, and just a month later, the first of the DLC packs dropped in April. WWE 2K made it clear there would be 5 rounds of post-launch DLC dropped throughout the year, each with a group of new wrestlers from across the WWE universe in each pack, along with other goodies. Each wrestler comes with a MyFACTION EVO card for the MyFACTION mode of the game. In addition, there is a standalone Booker T EVO card and a Sapphire Seth Rollins card with alternate outfits plus four gold Contracts for MyFACTION.

MyFACTION is a new mode in WWE 2K22 that is similar to EA Sports Ultimate Team mode they use across games. The mode lets you create your own team of up to four female and four male wrestlers, plus a manager, by collecting cards and upgrading them with additional cards. The cards have various versions of wrestlers, including the same wrestlers at different skill levels. You can earn the cards by completing specific challenges for a wrestler, buying a pack from the 2K store, or receiving them from the Locker Codes given out by WWE 2K. There are currently over 900 collectible cards. 

There are seven possible levels of cards that are either used instantly to add a wrestler at that level to your team or evolve a wrestler from one level to a higher one.
