WWE 2K24: Gameplay, Release Date, Game Modes… Loads of Information! | Xbox

After a first visual appeared at the end of last week, it’s time for WWE 2K24 to show itself to the world. This Monday, January 22, 2024 marked an important step for the publisher who had scheduled a reveal event. A promise fulfilled, here are the main points to remember.

Happy Birthday WrestleMania!

One of the questions that fans were asking the most was which Superstar would have their face on the cover of WWE 2K24. To that, we can tell you that it won’t be just one Superstar, but three! More precisely, it’s Cody Rhodes who will be on the cover of the Standard edition while Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair will be on the cover of the Deluxe edition.

An edition called “40 years of Wrestlemania” is also planned by the publisher. As the name suggests, this edition will honor the WWE’s greatest PLE, which will celebrate its 40th anniversary on April 6 and 7, 2024 live from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

As for the roster, 2K Games has not skimped and promises over 200 playable Superstars. The studio even offered a sneak peek by confirming the presence of the following Superstars: Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch, Batista, Kurt Angle, André the Giant, Asuka, Bret Hart, Brock Lesnar, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, and Chyna. Other names will be added to this list in the coming weeks. In a first for the franchise, seven real WWE referees have been modeled and will be integrated into the game.

Furthermore, several new match types have been announced: Special Guest Referee, Casket Match, Ambulance Match, and the Gauntlet Match. War Games and Hell In A Cell will of course be part of the game.

Wanting to pay tribute to all the legends who have marked the history of Wrestlemania, 2K will offer the “Showcase Immortals” mode, allowing you to relive the epic moments of the “biggest event of all time” with numerous unforgettable matches.

The studio also assures that it will give players the opportunity to help Cody Rhodes “finish his story” by becoming the World Champion of the company. The My Faction mode should be even more complete than usual.

The gameplay also undergoes changes with the introduction of Super Finishers and the Trading Blows mini-game. In the spirit of realism, WWE 2K24 will offer extensive animation improvements with over 90% of facial expressions updated, but also on the ramp camera system and diving. New throwable items will also make their appearance. Finally, the environments are expected to offer more interactivity.
