With the official reveal happening this weekend — just in time for Summerslam — I’m sure this is not the way the teams at Yukes and Visual Concepts (and especially 2K Sports PR) wanted the upcoming WWE 2k15 video game to make its gameplay debut.
However, while it may not be direct feed quality I’m sure wrestling fans are excited to catch the first glimpse of in-ring gameplay. The footage was clearly captured off-screen but still showcases impressive visuals as we see “the viper” Randy Orton face off with “the king of swing” Cesaro. Collision detection, while janky at times seems spot on, and the crowd definitely feels alive, especially when the action spills out of the ring. Don’t take my word for it, check out the first gameplay video below and bo-lieve!
Update: The original video has since gone private. Here’s a another clip from YouTube user: ShakeDown2012.
