2K and Visual Concepts have pulled back the curtain on the highly anticipated WWE 2K23, which seeks to iterate and improve upon everything set up in WWE 2K22. It features a 2K Showcase starring John Cena, improvements to MyGM mode, a new game mode based on the WarGames match type, and more. Fans will no doubt learn more about the game in the coming weeks, ahead of its March 17 release, but 2K and Visual Concepts have also revealed the pre-order bonus pack as well as three special editions for the game.
In short, the WWE 2K23 pre-order bonus is a playable Bad Bunny pack, with the game also coming with standard/cross-gen, deluxe, and icon editions. The former is pretty self-explanatory; WWE 2K23‘s standard edition is priced at $59.99 for PS4 and Xbox One consoles, while it is priced at $69.99 for PC, PS5, and Xbox in both digital and physical formats. The cross-gen edition includes digital copies of both PlayStation and Xbox versions, available across both platforms within the same console family.
WWE 2K23‘s Bad Bunny Bonus Pack comes in the Deluxe and Icon editions at launch, and it is also available for those who pre-order the standard or cross-gen editions through March 16 (prior to launch). It adds Bad Bunny as a playable character on WWE 2K23‘s roster and gives players a Ruby-tier Bad Bunny MyFACTION card. The content of the WWE 2K23 Deluxe and Icon editions are listed below:

WWE 2K23 fans have a lot to look forward to, as more information will become available in the coming weeks. Perhaps one of the biggest mysteries right now is the content of the season pass. WWE 2K22 added people like Logan Paul, Mr. T, and MGK, but also WWE Legends like RVD, the British Bulldog, and Cactus Jack. If the Bad Bunny pre-order pack is any indication, it seems WWE 2K23 is going in a similar direction.
WWE 2K23 releases for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on March 17.
