The first gameplay details for WWE 2K15 have been announced.
Following the well-received 30 Years of WrestleMania mode in WWE 2K14, all eyes are on 2K to see what they have in store for the game’s debut on next-gen consoles. And it seems 2K have stuck to what they know and gone to one of their other major franchises for inspiration.
MyCareer is a detailed, new and original story mode lifted from NBA 2K14. Previous WWE titles have struggled with start-from-the-bottom-and-work-your-way-up modes, but Visual Concepts’ inclusion on the game’s development will bring the superb career mode from NBA and drop it right in the middle of WWE.
The current speculation that NXT will be represented in 2K15, with your created wrestler starting in the development league before moving up to Raw and Smackdown.
The downside? MyCareer will only be available on Xbox One and PS4.
There will also be 2K Showcase; broken up into two episodes, Showcase will focus on a legendary feud in WWE history. No word yet on the rivalries included, but given the quality of the WrestleMania campaign last year, hopes are high that this will translate well to the world of WWE gaming.
Along with the new information, cover star John Cena tweeted the first screenshot from the game;
The improvement in the game’s visuals in extraordinary, no real surprise when the game features five times the animation data of WWE 2K14. Additionally, there has been a major upgrade when it comes to the in-game commentary, with over four times as many lines recorded, as well as Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler actually recording their lines together for the first time.
