WWE 2K15 will bring a single-player career mode to the WWE series, giving players the ability to create a wrestler and work their way up from a nobody to WWE World Heavyweight Champion, publisher 2K Games announced today.
This will be the second WWE title released under the 2K banner, and co-developer Visual Concepts is bringing in the career branding from its sports titles into WWE 2K15: The mode is known as MyCareer, as it is in NBA 2K.
MyCareer begins with creating a wrestler and taking them to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, where they will train with head coach Bill DeMott. After completing training, they'll move on to NXT, the WWE's internal development organization for up-and-coming wrestlers. There, they'll run into superstars like Rusev, Bo Dallas, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn and Corey Graves, all of whom will also be playable in WWE 2K15.
Once a created wrestler graduates to the WWE proper, they'll be wrestling in matches set by general manager Vickie Guerrero, who will give ultimatums that can result in bonus rewards. Created superstars will form alliances and rivalries with established WWE wrestlers, and work their way into Monday Night Raw, SmackDown and pay-per-views. SummerSlam and WrestleMania are the WWE's flagship events, and there, superstars can compete for MyCareer's ultimate prize, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
As they move through MyCareer, players will be able to upgrade their wrestler's attributes, skills and moves; unlock additional attire and managers; and earn new abilities. The decisions they make will affect their career path, and will send them down different branching storylines in the mode.
WWE 2K15 is set for release Oct. 28 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and Nov. 18 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more, check out our preview of the game's new historical mode, 2K Showcase.
