WWE 2K15 introduces face-scanning, but it'll take some image editing skills

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

WWE 2K15 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will include the ability to upload your face to your created rassler. While the process doesn't look as unreliable as NBA 2K15's face-scan feature, it will need some knowledge of image editing software to achieve optimal results.

The upside to that is, anything you scan and upload to the WWE Community Creations server can be used anywhere on your superstar's body, whether that's a face, a tattoo or a logo for a part of his or her costume. The key will be in editing the image down to the components that make everything shine, or at least don't look janky. (Sort of like the masks NBA 2K15 offered for Halloween.) The video above explains the process.

The WWE series has been one of the deepest for customization in the past, provided users knew their way around the game's vast library of assets, or had plenty of time to experiment with it. This solution seems to be a little more certain for getting a wrestler's look just right — which will be especially important in the new superstar career mode WWE 2K15 offers — with the understanding that users shouldn't expect something as easy as taking a selfie.

WWE 2K15 launched for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 last week; the game makes its debut on the new generation of consoles Nov. 18.
