Today, 2K revealed more information on the newest entry in its annual wrestling series, WWE 2K18. Many of these features improve on returning game modes such as MyPLAYER and MyCAREER while new additions such as an improved graphics engine and a new commentary team offer something entirely different for those who pick up the newest installment in the franchise every year.

The following details and changes coming in this year’s version of the game are as follows:

  • Creation Suite: The Creation Suite gets even deeper, including a new Create-a-Match feature and improvements to Create-a-Superstar, Create-an-Arena and Create-a-Video;

  • MyPLAYER: A new MyPLAYER experience introduces fighting styles and a brand new upgrade and progression system;

  • MyCAREER: A brand new MyCAREER experience incorporates a new story and a free-roaming backstage area that enable MyPLAYER characters to interact with other WWE Superstars and help direct the narrative;

  • Road to Glory Mode Debut: An all-new mode lets players compete against others, using their MyPLAYER characters, in a quest to qualify for WWE pay-per-view events;

  • New Graphics Engine: New visuals deliver spectacular new lighting, more realistic skin and new camera effects;

  • New Commentary Team: Introducing the trio of Michael Cole, Byron Saxton and Corey Graves;

  • Core Gameplay Additions and Improvements: A host of additional improvements will make WWE 2K18 the most comprehensive and realistic WWE game to date.

In addition, 2K announced a few weeks back that Seth Rollins would be gracing the cover of WWE 2K18. Information on the Deluxe and Collector’s Edition versions of the game were also detailed with each version giving players bonus digital content. Plus, those who pre-order either of these versions of WWE 2K18 will be able to receive the game on October 13 — four days before release.
