Jeff and I spent weeks trying to gank someone's pre-order code for WWE All Stars, the one that gave you access to perpetually evil multimillionaire and master of the perfectly-trimmed beard, Ted DiBiase (as well as his son, confusingly also named Ted DiBiase). I guess we can give up that hunt, as THQ announced today that the Million Dollar Man and son are now available for purchase in the game's DLC store on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $1.99 (or 160 Microsoft Space Dollars).
Even more exciting is the announced upcoming schedule of DLC, which features a number of classic wrestlers the likes of which any old school wrestling fan should find themselves uncontrollably squeeing with glee over. Go ahead and get your squee face ready, I'll wait.
We good? Okay.
July 5th will see the release of the "All-Time Greats Pack," which includes the Legion of Doom (Hawk and Animal, for the uneducated), Jerry "The King" Lawler, and Chris Jericho. That pack will retail for $4 (320 MS points).
Also on July 5th, R-Truth will be made available as a free download. Because honestly, who would pay money for R-Truth?
On August 2nd, THQ will take a trip down to Cobb County Georgia and release the "Southern Charisma Pack," featuring the face of law and order in the WWE, the Big Boss Man (as well as Michael Hayes, and Mark Henry). That pack will retail for $3 (240 MS points).
Whether or not more DLC will come down the pipes following the August release, THQ isn't currently saying, but between the Million Dollar Man, the Legion of Doom and Big Boss Man, I don't have many complaints about the selections they've made. That said, if we don't get a "Many Faces of Charles Wright" pack, featuring The Godfather, Kama "The Supreme Fighting Machine," and Papa Shango, this whole WWE All Stars endeavor will have been entirely for naught. For naught, I say!
