If you think WWE 2K16 is no different from WWE 2K15, think again. The previous game had only 67 playable characters. This time, Visual Concepts and Yuke's latest edition has at least 131 playable characters to date, besides the downloadable content that are all available on the season pass for US$24.99. The following is the most updated character list including divas and superstars (via GameSpot).
However, don't expect to see two fan favorites: Hulk Hogan and the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger. 2K Games decided not to include Hogan when he was caught making racial slurs by the National Enquirer. The Terminator, on the other hand, is only available for those who pre-ordered the game.
