2K is switching things up after the disaster that was WWE 2K20 and is serving up an arcade style beating care of their latest offering, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, which is scheduled to launch on September 18 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC (Steam), and Stadia.
You can view the wacky and over the top announce trailer below:
With more than over 70 wrestlers to choose from, players can take part in various game modes such as exhibition, online, king of the battleground, and a brand new campaign mode built exclusively for the game where you fight it out to earn a shot at a WWE contract.
Here is the overview of the game (Via Gematsu):
Eight unique Battlegrounds environments play a major role in the action, many of them featuring interactive elements adding to the mayhem alongside a variety of outrageous melee weapons players can use to pummel opponents. Soar from military helicopters, smash opponents with cars in an auto shop and toss them into the jaws of a hungry alligator in the swamp. Bombastic play-by-play is provided by WWE commentators Mauro Ranallo and Jerry “The King” Lawler to complete the mood.
Players can also customize their own arenas to give each brawl a personal touch and use the Superstar Creator to build their own, unique WWE Superstar with different body types and sizes, facial features, clothing, hair and fighting styles.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds is designed to be easy to pick up and play, but challenging to master, with more advanced techniques to be learned and skills to be unlocked so players of all skill levels can enjoy the action. A roster of today’s biggest WWE Superstars, including Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Asuka, Daniel Bryan, Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton—combined with Legends—including Andre the Giant, Undertaker, Mankind®, Shawn Michaels, Yokozuna, Sgt. Slaughter, and many more, offers fan favorites for all generations of the WWE Universe to enjoy, with more unlockable Superstars to come via free updates in the future. Each Superstar utilizes one of five class styles, and each class style has its own combat moves, strengths and weaknesses. Choose from the Powerhouse, Technician, High-Flyer, Brawler and All-Rounder to find the style that works best for you. Arcade-style powerups, such as Flaming Fist, Ice Breath and Earthquake, are accompanied by colorful visual effects, offering extra excitement and an additional dimension of strategy that can quickly change the direction of a match.
