Check out the new WWE 2K14 screenshots, right here.
2K Games and WWE kicked off the SummerSlam weekend in a big way showcasing WWE 2K14 for the masses. The roster reveal of the 30 Years of WrestleMania mode on Saturday had some big surprises like Razor Ramon, Goldberg and Yokozuna. They also revealed more of the mode itself.
I was able to get hands on with the game, and played the Hulk Hogan/Andre The Giant match from WrestleMania III, I was simply blown away with the presentation of it. The intro video got me hyped up and then the match itself looked old school VHS quality, which fits the era and the mode. The match flows fantastic with the storyline playing out as it did back during the real match.
There’s an objective list, the first is shown for you and the rest are hidden. As you complete each objective, the next objective is revealed. A little cut scene plays out in game as you do each objective. I also played the Shawn Michaels/Ric Flair match from Wrestlemania 24. Incredible storytelling here, with Shawn forcing Flair to retire via the match stipulations which are again, played out in video form before the match begins. The end of the match, which is a spoiler, but this was 6 years ago, shows Ric actually crying in the ring when he loses.
There will be more of the mode, as there’s over 45 matches and over 200 unlockables to obtain, over the next few months. Also other modes will be detailed as well. WWE 2K14 is out October 29th on PS3 and Xbox 360.
