WWE 2K17 patch adds Future Stars DLC support and, er, fixes Kane's hair

2K has dropped another bumper patch for WWE 2K17, just in time for Christmas.

The big news is that it includes support – i.e. character models – for the already announced Future Stars DLC pack, encompassing Austin Aries, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Mojo Rawley and Tye Dillenger. There's no way to actually unlock those characters yet – presumably the pack is awaiting Sony and Microsoft approval – but expect to be able to do so imminently, perhaps as early as next week.

Other fixes include Kane, who Big Show recently told GR+ wears gloves smelling of yak meat, no longer having issues 'up top' ["Kane's hair will now layer over all his masks when equipping his masks in WWE Creations"], Michael Cole referring to wrestlers by name in the build up to Universe matches, and the ability to manually trigger the chain wrestling mini-game. 

Indeed, the official patch notes list 41 overall changes, and are therefore well worth a read.

WWE 2K17 is out now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
