Last week we showed you the first images from the upcoming WWE 2K20 video game and the weekend brought a leaked trailer and cover reveal. Monday, as promised, brings us so much more.
Per an announcement made via press release and a pair of videos, the announced details for WWE 2K20 will bring a number of firsts to the franchise, including a creative ‘WWE 2K20 Originals’ mode, the ability to have Mixed Match Challenge matches, and the chance to play as The Ninth Wonder Of The World, Chyna.
From the press release:
2K today announced current Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and WWE Superstar Roman Reigns as the cover Superstars for WWE 2K20, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE video game franchise. Lynch and Reigns will serve as ambassadors for WWE 2K20’s worldwide marketing campaign – “Step Inside” – which invites players to enter the world of WWE and face a variety of new and exciting challenges in the virtual ring. WWE 2K20 is currently scheduled for worldwide release on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One family of devices, including the Xbox One X and Windows PC.
Players who purchase the WWE 2K20 Deluxe Edition or Collector’s Edition will receive in-game bonuses, including playable Superstars Chyna, Hulk Hogan, Mankind and The Rock, in addition to the Standard Edition game.
This year’s Showcase Mode will revolve around the Four Horsewomen of NXT, which goes along way toward explaining what estranged Superstar Sasha Banks was doing working with WWE in New York City back in May.
WWE 2K20, in direct response to fan feedback, will include several franchise firsts alongside streamlined gameplay and a variety of popular modes. The story-driven, objective-based 2K Showcase: The Women’s Evolution will follow the careers of the Four Horsewomen – Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks. Controls will be streamlined to allow new players to jump into the game more easily, while experienced players will still enjoy a challenge.
In addition, WWE 2K20 players will be able to compete as both male and female Superstars in MyCAREER and Mixed Tag matches, while last year’s popular WWE Towers returns with exciting new challenges, including a story-driven Tower centered around the career of Roman Reigns.
