A strong case for fans to go all-in.
Naturally, 'WWE 2K16' caters to the pro-wrestling fan (as well as fans of 'The Terminator'), but with that strong pull towards the showmanship of the modern and recent WWE, there is the last 30+ years of wrestling to draw from. As much as I tend to frown at many games' season passes, the Legends and 2015 Hall of Fame Showcase content alone makes the 'WWE 2K16' season pass attractive, and that's at a price of $24.99. That leaves the New Moves Pack and Future Stars Pack as a bonus, but they aren't mandatory. All of the DLC will also be available separately.
Here is a breakdown of all of the DLC that will be offered. This includes the Accelerator and MyPlayer KickStart options.
The WWE 2K16 downloadable content offerings are scheduled to include the following items and be available for purchase on the PlayStation™Network for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 systems, as well as Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft for Xbox One and Xbox 360:

The Accelerator will be available for a suggested price of $1.99.
MyPlayer KickStart (PS4™ system and Xbox One Exclusive)
