Since 2K took over the WWE lineup of games – the franchise has become a staple on consoles and PC. Yet Steam users have been made to wait longer to get their hands on the annual game – typically the April following a games release. Now though, 2K has announced that WWE2K18 will be launching simultaneously across all platforms.

The game will land on Steam in two flavors;

In a first for the WWE 2K series, WWE 2K18 is releasing on PC the same day as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One! On October 17th, both the standard and deluxe editions of WWE 2K18 will go live on Steam and various other PC retailers around the globe.

While the four-day Early Access Deluxe Edition perk for PlayStation 4/Xbox One will not be an option on PC, those who pre-order either edition will receive two versions of Kurt Angle on day one. Downloadable content will be available à la carte for those who purchase the Standard Edition.

WWE 2K18 Deluxe Edition

  • PRE-ORDER to play as Kurt Angle’s WWE “American Hero” persona, as well as his ECW “Wrestling Machine persona;
  • WWE 2K18 Season Pass digital content (details announced soon);

The only drawback appears to be the fact that the game won’t be getting an early access – so PC gamers will have to wait until the game officially launches. Eager console gamers will be able to jump into the experience early – paying a bit more for the experience.

It’s a huge step up for PC fans and finally brings the PC edition of the game into line with other titles.

WWE2K18 is spreading its wings this year, landing on a number of consoles and platforms. Nintendo Switch users will also be able to jump into the ring for the first time – as the game arrives on Nintendo’s handheld console.
