Larger-than-life arcade wrassler WWE 2K Battlegrounds will drop the people’s elbow on the PlayStation 4 from 18th September, publisher 2K Sports has announced. The title, which is developed by NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 maker Saber Interactive, will feature 70 WWE Superstars and Legends at launch – with more to be added post-launch.
In addition to exhibition and online modes, the title will also feature a campaign, where you’ll compete for “the chance to earn a WWE contract”. The blurb explains: “Along the way, you’ll unlock new arenas, inspired by locations such as the Everglades, a military-style Bootcamp, Mexico, New York, and Scotland, while receiving guidance from legendary personalities including Stone Cold Steve Austin and Paul Heyman.”
There are two editions available for pre-order: the Standard Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition. Both come with Edge if you pre-order, though the latter option also includes all versions of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and Ronda Rousey unlocked from the offset, as well as 1,100 in-game Golden Bucks, which can be spent on cosmetics.
