How to upload your face into WWE 2K18

3 min read

Another year, another WWE game. Hello everyone, I’m Darryn from Critical Hit, or as I like to call myself…BAD NEWS BONTHUYS! OOHHH YEEAAAAAAH! SNAP INTO A SLIM JIM! Much like WWE games of old, WWE 2K18 allows you to craft a superstar who happens to bear a certain resemblance to you. That’s because you can upload your face into the game, taking the custom aspect of being a rookie superstar to the next level. So how do you do it? Let’s break down the steps:

1. Take a decent selfie

Yup, ignore granddad and go find a nice neutral colour wall to stand against and take your selfie. A white wall works best, but anything with a flat surface colour will do just fine. Make certain that you’ve got a neutral facial expression for this, that you’re looking directly at the camera and that you’re not earing any bulky clothing. In fact, it may be best to not be wearing anything on your torso at all.

2. Ready your photo

With your headshot in hand, bring up Photoshop or MS Paint even, and trim that photo. A picture of around 512 x 512 is recommended, and a PNG does even better. If you don’t know how to do either, don’t worry. You’ve got a flat background, and your smartphone most likely has an option to crop that image to a square shape.

Next, you’ll want to head to the WWE 2K18 website, and select the Image Uploader option in the top left corner. Navigate through, select “Face Photo” in the menu and upload your face.

From there, go back to WWE Creations and then New Custom Superstar. Select Face, select Face Photo Capture and then press R1/RB to highlight Downloaded. And there you are! You can now start playing with your face, altering and shaping it to the superstar body in front of yo. Go wild, experiment and don’t be afraid to be silly. It takes some time to perfect the art of creating a photorealistic wrestler in WWE 2K18, but that’s half the fun.

Now show us some of your up and coming superstars already.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    OMG King that he’s been D-faced! Oh the humanity!

    • When viewing the above image I keep hearing Fat Bastard yelling ‘Come ‘ere, I’m gonna eat ya’ – for some reason.


  • Yeah, that doesn’t look creepy at all…

  • Admiral Chief

    The horror……….

  • Hammersteyn

    So what the finished product look like?

  • I_am_Duffman!

    How does this compare to Fifa? I tried Fifa’s face import thing a couple of years back and felt it worked quite nice actually.

    • I honestly couldn’t tell you, having never experienced that system myself. What I can say with the WWE 2K18 creation suite, that there are options aplenty for adjusting every aspect of your face.

        Pretty soon they’ll call it the Chris Jericho virtual plastic surgery feature. Change your virtual face for only 5 real dollar!

    Are you planning to scare your opponents into submission? @Darryn_Bonthuys:disqus

    • My finishing move is the Crippler Face-Face.

      • MonsterCheddar

        You should try the Stroke Face. I hear its paralyzing.

        • Gr8_Balls_o_Fire

          No, dude.
