The WWE is touching down in San Francisco at the Levi’s Stadium for Wrestlemania 31 this March, to kick things off the company has already assembled their travel packages which run from $900 to $5500.
The current promotional art for the event showcases Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Big-E Langston and Wade Barrett on the front which provides fair enough speculation for where some of these guys will fall in the storyline when WM comes around.
While a little late, we have high resolution images to compliment the news for MyCareer on WWE 2K15 with stars like Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, HHH, Bray Wyatt and more.
For those who missed the announcement, check out the details direct from 2K on the new mode and then scroll down a bit more for the huge gallery.
Players will begin MyCareer by taking characters they create in WWE2K15’s Creation Suite to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. While there, they will be trained by former WWESuperstar and WWE Performance Center head coach Bill DeMott, as they navigate a series of objectives. Successful completion of the objectives will lead players to compete at NXT, WWE’s developmental system for rising young talent, where they will continue with matches and new objectives. At NXT, they will encounter a roster of new and future WWE Superstars, including Rusev, Bo Dallas, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn and Corey Graves, all of whom will also be available as playable characters.
After mastering their skills in NXT, players will move up to WWE’s main roster, where General Manager Vickie Guerrero will set matches and keep her Superstars focused through ultimatums designed to gain bonus rewards. Players will develop alliances and rivalries while competing to win spots on WWE pay-per-view events and flagship shows like Monday Night Raw® and SmackDown®. They will also compete for the United States Championship and Intercontinental Championship. Successful players will make their way to SummerSlam® and WrestleMania®, where the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line as the top MyCareer prize.
Decisions made throughout the WWE developmental process, including alliances, rivalries and social media interactions, will impact player personality traits and crowd reactions. As players progress throughout the mode, they will also have opportunities in-game to upgrade their attributes, acquire new abilities, skills and moves, earn new clothing and unlock managers. These decisions, along with a player’s win/loss record, will lead to multiple branching storylines, surprises, twists and turns that offer significant replay value to explore different career paths.
“MyCareer is a mode beloved by our NBA 2K fans and is a perfect fit for WWE2K15,” said Greg Thomas, President at Visual Concepts. “We are eager to deliver a comprehensive career mode experience for the first time and consider its inclusion a critical step forward for the franchise.”
Take-Two interactive has purchase the publishing rights for the WWE game franchise this is a big move for 2k Sports, by acquiring such a well-known franchise they have place themselves as one of the stronger if not the strongest sports video gaming company as of late. The WWE games has a huge following which started back when WWF WrestleMania 2000 was released for the N64, for those of you who are new to wrestling games and its we are talking about roughly around 12 years of consistent wrestling game releases, so you can imagine the following it has establish during the years .
So when THQ stated they would be closing shop, fans immediately wanted to know 2 things.
#1. Will one of the bigger companies like Activison, Ubisoft ,EA try to make a move on the rights.
#2. Will they keep the same developers?
Both questions were answered when Take-Two announced that they would be purchasing the rights and keeping Yuke’s as the development team. Keeping Yuke’s is the real gem to this, they have been the developers of all the WWE games so bringing them along was a must. This move wasn’t surprising to me 2k is known for making the best financial decision for themselves, and they know starting from scratch with another development team would hurt the series’ momentum and cost them in sells.
WWE 13 was widely well-received and to not build on that success would be a bad move. But like I said Take-Two/2k Sports are aware of this and I assume will not interfere with the games future development too much and with 2k’s track record it’s safe to say the license is in good hands.
The WWE gaming fan base is a demanding bunch and expect a lot of new features and changes every year, so quality of the first WWE game 2k puts its name on is going to be critical.
For months now THQ has kept a tight lid on WWE’13 announcing a little info here and there through Twitter and Facebook nothing really to keep fans interested and for moment it looked as if the game was losing some hype, like I said they did release a few trailers going over a few things they tweaked for the games core gameplay and the many issues it had, but nothing on the highly anticipated Universe Mode 3.0, that was until recently THQ gave us goods in the latest game trailer.
Here’s what they go over in the trailer below:
Create a Show:
Players have the freedom to create their own shows and which day they appear on from Monday through Saturday. Players will be able to choose the presentation graphics, arena, and rosters that will appear on the show while also assigning up to four Titles to be contested over.
Create a Pay-Per-View
With custom shows comes Pay-Per-View, now players can create their own Pay-Per-Views and match-type themes along with what shows participate in it
For those who remember Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain, they finally brought back statistics, Players now can view various Titles and show stats in their WWE Universe, keeping track of wins/loss and title reigns.
Superstars can enter feuds against one another as part of a rivalry, while competing for the #1 contender rights for Tiles and more. With 200 more new storylines look for your feuds to stand out in your Universe
More Freedom, More Freedom
Many improvements and other additions have been made to Universe, such as more matches per show and the freedom to edit whole match cards, customizable championship rankings and the ability to restart your Universe from the beginning. With the additions of Createa Show and Statistics being feature on WWE’13, I can guarantee the hype meter for this game has just has shot through the roof making this game a must get for wrestling fans
Its been a couple of days since THQ release the Roster for the highly anticipated WWE’13, going with the Attitude Era (1997-2002) WWE’13 will have all the influential wrestlers of that era, with a roster lineup like this WWE ‘ 13 looks prime to be a one of the best of the series!
