WWE '13 focuses heavily on the Attitude Era, and the game will include two of the period's prominent match types, the "King of the Ring" and "I Quit" contests, publisher THQ announced today.

The King of the Ring was a single-elimination tournament around which the WWE (née WWF) held a pay-per-view event. WWE '13 players can set up King of the Ring with a variety of options, including selecting the number of participants (4, 8, or 16) and the types of matches involved, and the mode supports one or two human combatants.

The old I Quit match is back in a WWE game for the first time in eight years, according to THQ. It's a one-on-one, no-holds-barred contest with a humiliating end: the rules stipulate that the match can only end when one fighter concedes defeat by saying the words "I quit." WWE '13 represents the quitting scenario with a challenging minigame, the difficulty of which can be affected by both the quitting combatant and the winning opponent.

WWE '13 is set for release on October 30th on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii. Check out two screenshots of each match type in the gallery below, and read our Attitude Era preview of the game.
