2K Games has announced that WWE 2K Battlegrounds will release worldwide in September of this year, on the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. The arcade-style fighting game will feature more than 70 WWE Superstars and Legends at launch.
There are also plans to release additional Superstars after launch, via DLC. Developer Saber Interactive also release information on the various modes that the upcoming game will offer, including:
- 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.
Players can also customise their fighter to create their own unique WWE Superstar with different body types and sizes, facial features, clothing, hair and fighting styles.
The game is available to pre-order from the PlayStation Store with a RRP of £34.99 for the standard edition and £44.99 for the Digital Deluxe edition. WWE 2K Battlegrounds launches on 18th September 2020.
