WWE 2K15 Adds New Wrestlers, Promises to Have a “More Polished Look” on Next-Gen Consoles

The annual game for all “wrasslin” enthusiast is upon us and 2K Sports has confirmed the first round of wrestlers for the upcoming WWE 2K15 game.

Bray Wyatt, John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Cesaro, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, Naomi, Cameron and AJ Lee will be included.

Visual Concepts and Yukes have teamed up to promise a “more polished looking game” compared to previous installments. Bodies will be better proportioned; clothing and other textures will be improved under better lighting.

To accomplish this feat they are relying on the wonderful and improved technology that is motion capture. Concepts is capturing a variety of facial expressions so that wrestlers will express more realistic emotions in the ring.  Hair, skin, faces, and ring gear will also be upgraded.

They are so committed to getting the action right that WWE sends their ring technicians to make sure everything is accurate when motion captures are being filmed.

2K15 will feature at least five times the animations of any previous WWE game, pacing will be similar to that of a real WWE event with matches having less of a free-for-all tone and commentary will be greatly improved.

WWE commentators Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler have recorded over 35 hours of new lines, “creating more natural conversation threads.”

WWE 2K15, will release October 28th for North America and October 31st internationally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    Yukes hasn’t made a good wrestling game since the New Japan games on the PS1. I’m intrigued to see how much of this team up is VC and how much is Yukes though, I’ll keep an open mind. I’m not really a huge wrestling fan, like I was when I was younger, but II’d love to play a good wrestling game.

    Just don’t make everything look like it’s shrink-wrapped in cellophane. Everything in the psat games has been so shiny.

    • ipot_04

      exactly, i’m expecting the models still look plastic figurines like in their past WWE games.

  • bob

    I bet that it’s still going to be a mess, they still sell f*cktons of this series without fixing most of the bugs yearly.

      I expect the models would still look like plastic figurines.

    WWE games have been lame for a long time now. They need to have a great continuous career mode again. One where you create your own wrestlers start off in NXT and have to work your way up, Then go to smackdown and win a few titles there after that you go to raw and eventually win the world title. All at the same time having good storylines and rivalries.

    If that happens I will buy it but until then screw your same game with a roster update from the past 5 years.

  • Booker T Jr.

    I can dig that.

  • JustGaming

    Maybe if you show me something new, I will buy your games again. Until then, they remain the same buggy mess that they have been for years now.

    C’mon 2K, show me a winner with genuinely new ideas!
