VR boxing game Creed: Rise to Glory from Raw Data and Sprint Vector developer Survios is getting a free DLC update this month on November 27th. The update will add antagonists Viktor Drago and Danny “Stuntman” Wheeler from the upcoming Creed sequel, Creed II starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, which is due out in theaters on November 21st.
Creed II continues the story of Adonis Creed, son of original Rocky series’ Apollo Creed. The climactic fight at the end of the film is a battle with Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago, otherwise known as the man that killed Adonis’ father, Apollo, in the ring during the events of Rocky IV. In a way, this is a familial rematch that’s been building for decades.
Later this month, players will be able to reenact the films battle in VR and take on the roles of Adonis and Viktor Drago for themselves. Both Drago and Wheeler will be available in the Freeplay and PvP game modes across all platforms (PSVR, Steam, and Oculus Home.)
We praised the gameplay in Creed for our review, but had some reservations about the general lack of content. Overall, it’s still an excellent VR boxing title — especially for fans of the film franchise.
