The first couple of packs of DLC for WWE All Stars
have finally landed on Microsoft’s Xbox 360. The Million Dollar Pack, American Dream Pack, as Honky Tonk Man launched a few weeks back on the PlayStation Network but are now available for all. In addition to the three previous packs, R-Truth is now available as a downloadable superstar, free of charge, to players on both systems (or at least those with accessible marketplaces).
Ii should be noted that the Million Dollar Dream pack is only available to those gamers who pre-ordered their game(s) through GameStop. I posted my thoughts
on the America Dream Pack and Honky Tonk Man a few weeks back and concluded that fans of the game couldn’t go wring with any of the offerings...
Head on over to your respective marketplace and check them out! The full press release regarding the packs is available on the next page.

About WWE All Stars
The revolutionary new addition to THQ’s distinguished WWE videogame portfolio and debut release from THQ San Diego, WWE All Stars bridges generations with a fun, fresh and fast-paced experience inside the virtual ring. Delivering one of the greatest rosters ever assembled in a WWE videogame, WWE All Stars includes current-day WWE Superstars and legendary talent such as John Cena, The Rock, Andre the Giant, Triple H, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, The Miz, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Rey Mysterio, and for the first time ever in a THQ-produced WWE videogame, “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Each roster member boasts a distinctive and highly stylized appearance, adding to the overall atmosphere and attitude exuding from the on-screen action.
WWE All Stars encompasses a fun, intuitive and approachable gameplay style, creating a highly competitive environment and an engaging spectacle. Packed with high-flying and hard-hitting action, players explore a variety of responsive quick and strong grapples, standing and running attacks, as well as combination sequences. Everyone on the power-packed roster is equipped with individual abilities, signature moves and renowned finishers to create the ultimate in-ring experience. In addition, offering four classes of competitor – Acrobat, Big Man, Brawler and Grappler – WWE All Stars provides players with WWE Legends and WWE Superstars who have distinct advantages and techniques to which other classes do not have access, including specific combinations and unique abilities.
WWE All Stars also recognizes the greatest matchups in WWE history may not have happened yet – until now. In Fantasy Warfare Mode, players will pick a side – WWE Legends or WWE Superstars – and compete in a series of fantasy matches that pit WWE talent with similar personal or in-ring attributes against one another to determine the greatest of all time. Informative and engaging video packages produced by WWE set up each of the pairings and match objectives.
