“WWE 2K17” was a hit when it was released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Now, Yuke’s and Visual Concepts, the game developers, have created the PC version of the wrestling pro video game. They will launch the PC game globally on Feb. 7 with two available options to choose from.

To be published by 2K Sports, the upcoming PC format of the wrestling game will allow the PC players to purchase two editions of the game: the “WWE 2K17” Standard Edition and the “WWE 2K17” Deluxe Edition.

According to “WWE 2K17’s” official website, the standard package is priced at $49.99, and it contains a copy of “WWE 2K17” video game and the Goldberg Pack. The Goldberg pack provides access to two playable versions of legendary WCW and WWE star Bill Goldberg, who is also a playable character in WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc arenas

As for the “WWE 2K17” Deluxe Edition, apart from the copy of “WWE 2K17” video game and the Goldberg Pack, it also contains a Season Pass. The Season Pass is packed with MyPlayer Kickstart, Accelerator, NXT Enhancement Pack, Legends Pack, New Moves Pack, Future Stars Pack, and Hall of Fame Showcase, which will be made available post-launch.

Fans who would choose the standard edition will have the option to purchase Season Pass separately at $29.99.

“All DLC released to date for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be available for PC immediately at launch,” according to the website. Therefore, PC gamers will still be up-to-date despite the late release.

Meanwhile, in terms of minimum system requirements, future players are advised to have at least an updated Windows 7 (64-bit) operating system with an Intel Core i5-3550 or an AMD FX 8150 chipset.
