WWE 2K Battlegrounds will enter the ring on September 18, first superstars in the roster announced

Thanks to WWE 2K20 being the worst there was, the worst there is and the worst there ever will be, this year’s incarnation of WRASSLIN’ is going in a different direction. While 2K Games has given the core WWE series the year off and more time to slap together some cinematic fisticuffs that don’t make me want to take part in a solo buried alive match against myself, Vinny Mac’s house of chest slaps will instead be represented by a more cartoonish hurrincanrana off the top ropes.

Called WWE 2K Battlegrounds, the idea is sports entertainment if Tex Avery was in charge. Saber Interactive is in charge of this project, which now has a release date: September 18. “We know WWE fans and gamers enjoy a wide variety of experiences, and with WWE 2K Battlegrounds, we’re presenting a whole new dimension through arcade-style gameplay that’s completely different than our WWE 2K simulation franchise,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing for 2K.

We look forward to seeing everyone tear it up with friends and family in the Battlegrounds.

Here’s the latest trailer for the sports entertainment Looney tune:

And here’s what Saber Interactive is promising on day one!

Exhibition – Take part in Exhibition matches at home or on-the-go, anytime and anywhere, in local and online multiplayer action for up to four players;

Campaign – Join the adventures of seven new WWE hopefuls – created exclusively for WWE 2K Battlegrounds – in Campaign mode and compete for the chance to earn a WWE contract. Along the way, you’ll unlock new arenas, inspired by locations such as the Everglades, a military-style Bootcamp, Mexico, New York and Scotland, while receiving guidance from legendary personalities including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin® and Paul Heyman™;

King of the Battleground – Take on all comers in the King of the Battleground, an online, last-man-standing mode where four players start in the ring while four more wait outside to enter, challenging you to run the gauntlet and defeat them all;

Online – Test your toughness in online tournaments and Exhibition matches.

And here’s a list of some of the wrasslers who’ll you be able to choose from:

  • Roman Reigns
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Charlotte Flair
  • Becky Lynch
  • Asuka
  • Daniel Bryan
  • Kofi Kingston
  • Randy Orton
  • Andre the Giant
  • Undertaker
  • Mankind
  • Shawn Michaels
  • Yokozuna
  • Sgt. Slaughter
  • Stone Cold Steve Austin
  • John Cena
  • Ronda Rousey
  • The Rock
  • Bray “The Fiend” Wyatt

It looks alright, and while it’s not the WWE All Stars sequel I’m still patiently waiting for, it still seems to be miles better than WWE 2K20.

      Didn’t know they were fighting, watched F1 this weekend though. 8/20 cars didn’t finish and Lando Norris finished third making him the third youngest driver to finish on the podium. Thanks to Hamilton getting a 5 second penalty for running Albon of the road.

        Damn F1 is back? but no audience also?

        Hamilton will do anything at this point to get past Schumachers record.

        Yeah Masvidal took the fight on 6 days notice after Burns tested positive for Covid-19…..Gonna be epic war if Usman does not maul him or do the grind on the floor tactic.

    It reminds me a bit too much of that horrible wwe mobile game, with the messed up microtransactions. Hopefully, AEWs game will deliver something special, otherwise just fire up wwe 2018 or better yet wwe 12.

          I tried it, it’s fine except when you get to the point where you unlock events. I uninstalled the game after the Masters of the Universe event. Basically you had wrestlers merge with characters from He-Man. They give you a starter character for the event and when you win a daily fight you get 5 loot box spins with a chance of winning one of the other ones. After spending extra time on the loo for a month and not winning any I uninstalled it. It’s a cash grab. They want you to gamble as much as possible. I wanted the MOTU Undertaker, he’s finisher has him powerbombing the other guy out of the ring onto the floor. Fuck mobile games. I’m going back to the golf rival thing. At least I can tease people with emojis in that.

            I don’t know if you know about a streamer called DSP (Darksydephil), but when he was going through his bankruptcy – one of the reasons why… was because he basically dumped nearly 40 000 dollars into WWE Champions (and continued to spend thousands of dollars to remain on the leaderboard)- it even became a huge meme and the WWE Champions Twitter page used to get spammed with images of DSP. It was very funny.

            NSFW (some salty language) 😛
