2K hit Gamescom with a storm this past week as they announced the complete feature reveal list for the upcoming release of WWE 2K16, including details on previously announced content alongside brand new details such as improvements to the Creation Suite, soundtrack improvements and many fixes and adjustments to content from WWE 2K15.
WWE 2K16 will boast the largest roster ever released in the WWE franchise as over 120 unique playable Superstars and unlockables will be available including iconic names such as Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, and the return of popular legends such as WWE 2K16 cover star, Stone Cold Steve Austin. There’s also a few fantasy options thrown into the mix as Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his debut as the T-800 from the original Terminator film and its sequel, Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
The popular 2K Showcase mode returns with additional story-based content – giving WWE fans the chance to relive some of the best rivalries and matches in the history of sports entertainment. Rewarding objectives, legendary unlocks, additional ring gear and new entrances return as incentive for players to follow in the footsteps of their favorite Superstars.
MyCareer mode, which I felt was a little lacking in WWE 2K15, returns for its second installment as players define their own legacies in WWE – rising through the ranks from the talent filled NXT right up to the main roster on WWE – all the way up to a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame. Exciting new elements will come into effect including personality-driven interviews, the opportunity to interfere with rivals matches and the debut of tag team options.
The Creation Suite hopes to build on the solid foundations put in place by last years release as a deeper arsenal of content allows for much more variety in creation including Create a Diva, Create a Championship, Create an Arena, and Create a Show.
2K also announced that they completely overhauled the online experience based on fan feedback, which should be an easy improvement considering last years version didn’t work at all.
