Rocky is one of my favorite film franchises. The story or an underdog rising to the top and overcoming challenges in personal and professional life, failing, and eventually redemption across a whole saga of films is great and boxing is an excellent backdrop to the drama. Creed: Rise to Glory from Survios doesn’t quite capture the dramatic aspects of the story, but it nails the thrill of beating another person up in VR.
Today’s Rocky Legends update is a free DLC for the game that adds iconic characters from across the series such as classic Rocky Balboa, Apollo Creed, Ivan Drago, and Clubber Lang that you can play as in both Freeplay and PvP matches.
According to a press release, “ROCKY Legends character is available in CREED: Rise to Glory as both a Freeplay opponent and character. Or, play as all the legends in PvP. PlayStation® VR players also receive a new fighting ring: the outdoor Walcott Bowl, a perfect setting for history-making exhibition bouts.”
It would have been great to get more actual story content based around these characters, but their inclusion at all is pretty great regardless. The original game follows the story of Adonis Creed, son of Apollo Creed, as you are trained by old man Rocky to get ready for the biggest fights of your career. It released around the same time as the second Creed film last year and we really fell in love with how active and intense it is in our review.
