WWE 2K Battlegrounds Available Today For Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch & Stadia

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. For those of you that have purchased it, let us know your thoughts. We will have our review online soon.

A roster of more than 70 WWE Superstars, Hall of Famers and Legends will be available in WWE 2K Battlegrounds at launch, with more than 60 additional Superstars currently scheduled for future release via free** downloadable updates, including “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior, Ric Flair and many more. The deep and varied roster enables players to bring a myriad of dream battles to life, including Andre the Giant™ vs. Undertaker, Roman Reigns vs. The Rock, Charlotte Flair vs. Beth Phoenix, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. John Cena, Edge vs. AJ Styles and many more. They can also create their own custom WWE Superstars in the Superstar Creator with different body types and sizes, facial features, clothing, hair and fighting styles. All Superstars utilize one of five class styles – Powerhouse, Technician, High-Flyer, Brawler and All-Rounder – with each class having its own combat moves, strengths and weaknesses. Arcade-style offensive and defensive power-ups, such as Flaming Fist, Ice Breath and Earthquake, offer an additional dimension of strategy that can quickly change the direction of a match.

A variety of game modes and match types are available in WWE 2K Battlegrounds, including King of the Battleground – an online, last-man-standing mode – and Battleground Challenge, where players take their customized creations from the Superstar Creator and compete in a series of challenges to unlock skill points, build up their abilities and earn cosmetic items. WWE 2K Battlegrounds also features a unique, single-player Campaign Mode, told through a comic book art style, where players team up with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and legendary advocate Paul Heyman™ as they travel the world in search of the next WWE Superstars. Online multiplayer matches bring players together from around the world, while time-limited Online Tournaments offer rewards and a wide range of match conditions.

Energy, intensity and expecting the unexpected are all keys to victory in the world of WWE 2K Battlegrounds. Along the way, players can explore eight unique Battlegrounds environments featuring interactive elements and outrageous melee objects, such as squeaky toy hammers and motorcycles. Players will give opponents a tune-up in the Auto Shop by tossing explosive barrels at them and sending a car crashing down. The action heats up in the Everglades as players toss each other into the jaws of a hungry alligator! Players can also customize their own arenas to give each match a personal touch.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is available in two formats: Standard Edition (MSRP $39.99) and Digital Deluxe Edition (MSRP $49.99). Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition will receive WWE Hall of Famer Edge®; all versions of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock and Ronda Rousey® unlocked at the beginning of play; 1100 bonus Golden Bucks, an in-game currency that can be used to unlock Superstars and cosmetic items.

  1. I bought it for the switch just seem like a switch type of game to play here and there. Reminds alot of All Stars just a fun game not to take to seriously. Sucks that you start out with hardly any wrestlers to begin with considering the size of the roster. SO alot of unlocking to do unless you just want to buy the wrestlers but I prefer to unlock them.
    small limited movesets, pretty much every wrestler in each class have the same moves except the finishers and signatures. Haven't played that long but like babythug says, very small amount of wrestlers to start with. You can't search for a random match if playing with a friend which is very stupid. So you'll either have to play against the CPU or have a CPU and you vs your friend and CPU.
    I'm liking the tiering of things. it's barebones from the start but I can't wait to unlock more clothing attire etc. as a game design major caws are things in super geeked on. any questions feel free to ask..
    hate auto correct..
    So far, this is pretty much exactly what I had hoped for. Just a fun, over-the-top, arcade wrestling game. I'm having a blast.
    I'm not a huge wrestling fan, so things like repetitive moves aren't going to bother me as much. And I have NBA Playgrounds 2, so I kind of knew what to expect in terms of most of the characters being locked at the start.
    I've played a handful of exhibition matches and completed the Bolo Reynolds portion of the campaign and have a little more than 24K in brawler bucks now. I'm looking forward to earning more to unlock more characters. That said, I do kind of wish I had spent the extra $10 for the deluxe version so that I had The Rock and Stone Cold from the get go.
    Got it last night and this game is perfect for me. Mostly going to play it with my son and his friends.
    I actually love the tiered system and how much there is to unlock as he gets really excited when we get new stuff.
    The repetitive moves don’t bother me yet either because of how fast the matches are. Also it looks like the unlockable power ups will add a lot to making the characters more unique as time goes on.
    Also agree with the other person, I also have the NBA game so I know what to expect.

    How are we enjoying the game a week later? I've got the game (Switch) sitting in my shopping cart. Not thrilled about the small roster to start, but sounds like the gameplay is pretty solid and fun.

    Take this with a bit of a grain of salt since I'm as casual as you can get when it comes to wrestling. I'm enjoying the game, but in the same way I'm sure a casual football fan enjoys Madden.
    I love the look of the game and I think the gameplay, for the most part, is pretty solid. Moves are pretty simple, but some can be a little tricky to pull off. A lot of the mini games (kicking out of a pin) involve mashing the trigger buttons. I have yet to win one of those. It's just not very intuitive for me. A lot of the move sets are the same across wrestlers. It could probably use a bit more variety there.
    Most of the wrestlers are locked by default, but I'm having fun trying to unlock them. And it is fairly easy to earn brawler bucks (or you can buy golden bucks) to unlock them. Some are also unlocked playing the campaign.
    The campaign is a story mode involving seven (I think it's seven) fictional wrestlers. There's also a Battlegrounds mode where you can take your CAW. Of course, a lot of the CAW accessories are locked by default as well.
    I'm planning on having my own little universe using exhibition matches. I wish they'd patch in titles so I can have champions.

    Thanks! I've been a wrestling fan for, well, as long as I can remember, although I do not watch current WWE and casually follow AEW, NXT and NJPW.
    Legends of Wrestlemania back in the day was similar in the limited move sets, but the game was just a blast to play, same with All-Stars. Sounds like this is along the same lines and honestly, I can't remember the last WWE 2K game I enjoyed, so the more arcade/fun route with these games is where I'd prefer to go anyway.
    It's $40, so what the heck? May as well pick it up and see if I like it.
    Update: Purchased a physical version for the Switch, which arrived in the mail yesterday. Probably won't get a chance to really dive into the game until the weekend, but I am looking forward it. After watching a few more videos (trying not to spoil much, but did want to see gameplay) I can tell I am going to enjoy this one.
    I'll post some impressions afterwards.
    Limited roster at the start aside, I'm really enjoying my time with this game. The gameplay is pick-up-and-play and most importantly, FUN. Definitely takes me back to the Legends of WrestleMania days. I like the way the story in the campaign is told, and I like the structure of main and side objectives.
    No major complaints at this point. Framerate is stable in docked and handheld for the Switch, which is worth noting.
