Fans of face-paint, bulging biceps and the pursuit of true Dingo Warriorism will be pleased to hear that 2K has released the “Path of the Warrior” DLC. The story-focused add-on pack for “WWE 2K15” focuses on topsy-turvy career of one of the squared-circle’s biggest stars; The Ultimate Warrior.

“Path of the Warrior” is the final piece of DLC for “WWE 2K15” and is currently available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The DLC retails for $9.99 and is also included free as part of the “WWE 2K15” season pass.

As noted by the official WWE website, wrestling fans will be able to follow the rise of the Ultimate Warrior over the course of his WWE career, starting with his record-time victory over The Honky Tonk Man during SumerSlam 1988. Normals and Little Warriors alike will get to Gorilla Slam their way through Macho Man Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Sgt. Slaughter, The Undertaker, Hunter Hearst Helmsley and many more of the Warrior’s iconic foes.

A preview video for the DLC is available on the official WWE YouTube channel, and features archival footage of The Ultimate Warrior’s famous entrances spliced with current-gen gameplay footage. During the three-minute trailer, 2K dev team members state that they decided to create the “Path of the Warrior” DLC because the wrestler was such a huge fan-favourite.

Hogan lost the match to The Ultimate Warrior in spectacular fashion, making him the first wrestler ever to hold both the WWF Intercontinental Championship belt and the WWF Championship belt simultaneously.
