2K Games shocked everyone when they revealed WWE 2K Battlegrounds, an arcade style game that will feature 70 of your favorite WWE superstars throwing down in the ring. The game is a big departure from the sim-focused WWE 2K series, and will feature everything from ice and fire power ups to environmental hazards like alligators and a plethora of weapons to use in the ring. With 70 characters to choose from, you'll have a nice mix of legendary superstars like The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Beth Phoenix, and more as well as a variety of current superstars like Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Roman Reigns, Ricochet, and more. 2K hasn't revealed gameplay yet of each superstar, though we've collected all the gameplay we have and the full roster of WWE 2K Battlegrounds in one place, and you can check all of it out starting on the next slide!
“We know WWE fans and gamers enjoy a wide variety of experiences, and with WWE 2K Battlegrounds, we’re presenting a whole new dimension through arcade-style gameplay that’s completely different than our WWE 2K simulation franchise," said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing for 2K. "We look forward to seeing everyone tear it up with friends and family in the Battlegrounds.”
Here are all the modes that will be featured in the game.
Exhibition: Take part in Exhibition matches at home or on-the-go, anytime and anywhere, in local and online multiplayer action for up to four players;
Campaign: Join the adventures of seven new WWE hopefuls - created exclusively for WWE 2K Battlegrounds - in Campaign mode and compete for the chance to earn a WWE contract. Along the way, you’ll unlock new arenas, inspired by locations such as the Everglades, a military-style Bootcamp, Mexico, New York and Scotland, while receiving guidance from legendary personalities including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin® and Paul Heyman™;
King of the Battleground: Take on all comers in the King of the Battleground, an online, last-man-standing mode where four players start in the ring while four more wait outside to enter, challenging you to run the gauntlet and defeat them all;
Online: Test your toughness in online tournaments and Exhibition matches.
