WWE 2K18 Now Available for Fans to Play via Early Access

WWE® 2K18 is now available worldwide to Early Access customers on the Xbox One. There is a lot of features offered in this newest iteration, and fans should be happy.

WWE 2K18 feature highlights include:

  • Extensive Roster: Featuring nearly 200 playable WWE and NXT Superstars and Legends, including cover Superstar Seth Rollins alongside John Cena, Brock Lesnar, AJ Styles, Alexa Bliss, Bobby Roode, Sasha Banks, Dean Ambrose, The New Day, Finn Bálor, Jinder Mahal, The Miz, No Way Jose, SAnitY, Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Andre the Giant and many more, WWE 2K18 delivers the largest roster in WWE games history;
  • Kurt Angle: Consumers who pre-ordered WWE 2K18 at any participating retailer received two playable characters of WWE Hall of Famer, decorated Olympian and current Raw General Manager, Kurt Angle, at no extra cost:
    • WWE “American Hero” persona (2001);
    • ECW “Wrestling Machine” persona (2006).
  • Gameplay Enhancements: WWE 2K18 continues refining the simulation gameplay experience that sits at the franchise’s core. Mayhem arrives in the form of improved eight-person matches, a new carry and drag system, thousands of new animations and more – all complemented by a brand new graphics engine that delivers spectacular lighting, more realistic skin and new camera effects to ensure everyone’s favorite WWE personalities, crowds and arenas look their best;
  • Creation Suite: WWE 2K18’s world-class Creation Suite delivers greater control for players to customize, build and share their own unique WWE Superstars, Arenas, Entrances and more. Highlights include new body types, face templates and menu poses; new hairstyles, scars, teeth, tattoo branding techniques and clothing materials; improved logo mapping, stitch patterns and highlight reel creations; the ability to preview lighting scenarios; Create-a-Show, featuring a fun 8-bit filter option; custom match types and much more;
  • MyCAREER Mode: The franchise’s career-driven journey focuses on telling a compelling story through self-created WWE Superstars (a.k.a. MyPLAYERs) as they explore two different paths en route to a WrestleMania moment and beyond: the Company Man and the Fan Favorite. A new free-roaming backstage area provides a more experiential scenario, as players spend more time interacting with fellow WWE Superstars and supporting personnel to explore their personalities, receive side quests, conduct or ambush interviews, change match cards and more. Players will also see MyCAREER updates to the mode’s Promo Generator, as well as Invasions;
  • Universe Mode: WWE 2K18 introduces two types of rivalry scenarios – Potential Rivalries and Active Rivalries – along with a color-coded Intensity Meter to guide what’s likely to happen between opposing rivals in any situation. Rivalries and storylines now see better flow to align with WWE’s real-life pay-per-view events, while new Power Rankings, Goals and Match Types add more depth throughout the experience;
  • Road to Glory: Making its WWE 2K18 debut, Road to Glory is a completely new online experience where MyPLAYERs from all over the world battle against one another. Players can compete daily in a variety of match types to earn stars, boosts, Superstar parts and virtual currency. In addition, by increasing their levels, players can further customize their MyPLAYERs to gain the advantage over others. Overall, players are encouraged to see if they have what it takes to secure entry into pay-per-view events and defeat their favorite WWE Superstars to earn special rewards;
  • Commentary: Featuring the debut trio of Michael Cole, Byron Saxton and Corey Graves at the commentary table, a WWE 2K game has never sounded better. Improved crowd sounds, including the addition of authentic crowd chants, bring WWE 2K18 closer than ever to what fans see every week on WWE television and at live events;
  • Soundtrack: Executive produced and personally curated by legendary WWE Superstar and global entertainment icon Dwayne “The Rock®” Johnson, the WWE 2K18 soundtrack features 11 unique songs representing many of Johnson’s favorite artists and music genres, including:
