WWE 2K16 News Post


WWE 2K16 patch 1.05 is available now for PlayStation 4 fans, no word yet on Xbox One. The patch fixes the Universe Mode issue gamers were having after downloading the Future Stars pack and much more.

UPDATE: (2-3) The patch should be available for Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime today. Here are the patch notes.

Patch notes applicable to Universe Mode:
  • Addressed an issue that occurred when the “WWE 2K16 Future Stars Pack” was installed where certain WWE Universe elements would reset (ongoing rivalries, calendar changes, edited shows, championship rankings) and changes wouldn’t save properly when exiting the mode or restarting the title. The level of impact varied by user, but users who replaced a default show slot with a Custom Show are more likely to have been impacted. Rivalries, calendar changes, custom shows, and championship rankings can now be manually readjusted.
  • Users who installed the WWE 2K16 Future Stars Pack on Patch 4 and encountered issues with Universe elements resetting may not be able to recover all data from their pre-WWE 2K16 Future Stars Pack installation WWE Universe save state, particularly with regards to statistics and ongoing rivalry stories for shows impacted by the reset. Affected users should not have to reset their entire Universe save state to continue playing the mode, which will now save changes properly.

They did a good job fixing the problem with the Future Stars Pack so quickly (even if it never should have happened in the first place), but it looks like they STILL haven't fixed the "Stone Cold Says So" Trophy bug that has been in the game since day one. Ugh.

I'm glad to see that they've added pre-release support for the Hall of Fame Showcase. I'm going to assume that they pushed this patch out early to cover the Future Stars Pack bug, so the Showcase itself isn't that close to release, but this probably means that it will be out this month as opposed to closer to Wrestlemania like some people have guessed.

Always nice to see a ton of fixes, even if I haven't experienced many of these bugs first hand. Keep up the good work 2k, and for the love of God, please bring back all of the classic entrance motions next year! Creating an entrance is such a bummer right now.

Nice to see these must have changes, although when they said "Rivalry matches are no longer removed when simulating normal matches on a card and then altering one of the Rivalry Superstars in the Customize Universe menu", this means I can finally edit matches in the card/PPV without the rivalries resetting? Or changing a title match at a PPV which was lead by a rivalry (Rollins and Reigns were in a feud, then at the PPV it's listed as a title match rather than a rivalry match) without it changing?

P.S. Did anyone else had a bug were the same song played non stop? I had "Break it Down" (dx theme) playing for like 15 minutes while i was editing universe mode following the DLC issues.

Hopefully this includes all instances of this in general, because it happened in most CPU vs CPU FCA matches and any other type of match where countouts had no effect. Just a loop where one would whip the other diagonally into the ringside for about 2 minutes.

"Weight detection now functions properly against Super Heavyweight Custom Superstars"

I'm hoping we eventually get a detailed description on how this works at all.

Dear 2ksports,

Thank you for all the fixes!!! But you guys need to patch the pinning system and make this game way harder. I have been playing on Legend difficulty with my reversal sliders all at ZERO and all of the CPU's reversal sliders set to MAXIMUM and the game is still too easy. The problem is with the pinning system. I have gotten too good at it. I can kick out toooooo often.

Also, the pinning system shouldn't allow me to kick out at 1 late in a match. I shouldn't be able to kick out at one when I get hit with a signature or finisher either. Here is an idea to fix this mess....

If your health bar is Green: Pin meter allows you to kick out at 1,2 & right before 3 count
If your health bar is Yellow: Pin meter allows you to kick out at 2 & right before 3 count
If your health bar is Red: Pin meter allows you to kick out at 2 & right before 3 count

If you get hit with a Signature Move: Pin meter allows you to kick out at 2 & right before 3 count NO Matter your health state.

If you get hit with a Finisher Move: Pin meter should only give you ONE chance to kick out right before the 3 Count!!!! This would add much more dramatic kickouts & the much needed suspense that is needed in this game!

NOTE: The way the COMPUTER Kicks out is Great. The problem is when a User goes up against a COMPUTER opponent or another USER.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE WWE 2K Patch this! I don't want to have to trade this game in. This happens every year. The game always becomes too easy. All I do is win. What is the point of having the option of losing if it never happens? I imagine playing NBA 2k16 and never losing. How boring would that be?
 
# 8 Razeart2422 @ 02/02/16 09:14 PM
When I say "ALLOW you to kick out at 2 & right before 3." I mean I want to hear the ref count 2 and see the kick out happen. Not see the ref get down on the mat to count and let me (AS THE USER) kick out before he even hits the ONE COUNT. The USER has the ability to kick out before the 2 count wayyyyyy too often. It's not only me that finds this game too easy on LEGEND Difficulty, all of my friends and people I've been watching on YOUTUBE as well. I see the "KICK OUT at ONE LATE in a MATCH problem" in almost every Youtube video that I have watched.

Please make its so that you only have one chance to kick out when hit with a finisher. At least do this for LEGEND difficulty. Every year I feel like I have thrown away 60 dollars because the game becomes too easy.

TOO EASY against the COMPUTER*

I manually edited every wrestler pin escape. I mean, I dropped it to 1 for some guys. The highest I have it I believe is at 20, and that's for the Undertaker and John Cena.

Also I think it was either on here or on 2K forum's, but I saw that if you leave the stamina cost and stamina recovery at default, the CPU stays very aggressive.

cjallure24 I have tried putting my wrestlers pin escape at 1 and even lowering the body durability to 20 and I still win. Also, when playing the career mode I stopped upgrading my character. I left him at Overall 62 and I still manage to win every match even against guys who are rated in the high 80s and 90s. The pinning system needs to be more difficult. I tried tinkering with every rating/slider in the game since the first day wwe 2k16 released and nothing stops me from kicking out. It is so rare for me to lose. For every 20 matches I play, I'll lose 2.

That sucks. I know I've changed the way over played from trying to win every match to just putting on great matches. As far as my career, I pretty much know I'll plow through that for achievements and titles.

And I'm not talking about the computer's aggressiveness. The aggressiveness is not the problem. Is the fact that I can kickout too much! And dont get me wrong, I dont want the 2k developers to make it so that you cant easily kickout of regular moves. I'm talking about making harder to kick out of a finisher. They need to make the pin meter appear after the two count after getting hit with a finisher and just give the user one chance to kickout.
 
# 14 Razeart2422 @ 02/02/16 11:49 PM
It's the fact that I can kickout too often*

I hope the 2k developers get to read this because this really sucks. The replay value of this game has gone down to zero for me and many of my friends. #LegenddifficultyneedstoBEdifficult.
Winning the championship in NBA 2k16 on Hall of Fame is a big achievement. Winning the WWE title in WWE 2k feels lame because its so easy to do. Being the WWE champ should make you feel like you are the champ because you earned it.
 
# 15 Razeart2422 @ 02/02/16 11:58 PM
Dear wwe 2k,

The way to test out if your legend difficulty is actually difficult is by asking your game testers to play on Legend and if they a winning at a consistent rate. Then the game is too easy. Take this as a lesson for wwe 2k17. If you guys decided not to patch this game.

Just imagine rarely ever losing in any other sports game or even never failing or dieing in a shooting/mission game. What would be the point of playing if you already know the OUTCOME?
 
# 16 Razeart2422 @ 02/03/16 12:00 AM
and if they are winning*
 
# 17 Razeart2422 @ 02/03/16 12:05 AM
If you guys decide*

FYI, you can edit your posts instead of replying to correct yourself.
 
# 19 Razeart2422 @ 02/03/16 12:31 AM
Smashman I don't know how to edit my message.

Does anyone know if Patch 1.05 is in fact that last patch? So that i can just go trade this game in tomorrow so that i can stop hoping/waiting
 
# 20 SmashMan @ 02/03/16 02:13 AM
You should see an Edit button on your posts. Lower-right corner.

I'd assume this is the last patch, unless they there's an issue with the Showcase DLC like they had with the Universe stuff and the Future Stars pack.
