The team behind WWE 2K23 has recently unveiled plans to bolster the game with a fully playable character, available at no extra cost. Launched in March 2023, WWE 2K23 has consistently delighted its fanbase by continually enhancing the gameplay experience with a string of patches and updates. Despite the game’s already extensive initial roster, the prospect of complimentary new Superstars joining the lineup is stirring considerable excitement, particularly among those eager to see a few familiar faces return to the fray.
Currently, WWE 2K23’s MyFaction mode boasts a host of unique Superstars not found in other gameplay modes. The preceding edition of the game featured an exclusive character, The Godfather, solely within this mode. Although enthusiasts and modders have managed to incorporate these characters via Community Creations, they’re not quite as polished, lacking several assets absent from the game. Still, the anticipation surrounding these Superstars means that any new additions to the playable roster whip up a frenzy of excitement.
WWE Superstar Mia Yim Joins WWE 2K23 Roster
An update from the official WWE 2K23 Twitter account reveals that WWE Superstar Mia Yim is set to join the game’s lineup following the next official update. This announcement follows closely after a recent patch, during which a WWE 2K23 modder uncovered a few concealed models, including Candice LeRae. Her return to WWE happened too late for inclusion in this year’s official roster, hence her omission. Her most recent in-game appearance was in WWE 2K22, where she featured as RECKONING and Mia Yim. The preview video suggests that her previous model was repurposed for this year’s release.
There are hints that WWE 2K23 may have more Superstars in store. Bryan Williams, WWE Games Associate Gameplay Producer, revealed in an interview on The Pro Wrestling Shoot Podcast that 2K intends to introduce some free roster enhancements. While he kept further details under wraps, the subsequent announcement of Yim’s addition lends credibility to his claims.
With a comprehensive and intricate custom character creation feature, and the impending arrival of WWE 2K23’s Season Pass DLC’s, the game is set to offer a broad selection of characters, thereby expanding players’ in-game choices. The promise of ongoing support from WWE 2K23’s development team is a promising sign for a positive relationship with the player base. This commitment may inspire confidence in gamers that the 2K team will be steadfast in their efforts to enhance the gameplay experience and longevity of the game.

WWE 2K23 is currently available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
