2K Games Reveals More Details Regarding WWE 2K17

Posted By: Kenny Williams on Aug 12, 2016

2K Games Reveals More Details Regarding WWE 2K17

Mark Little of 2K Games has revealed the following details regarding the upcoming WWE 2K17 video game, which will be released on October 11th:

Today, we get to share with everyone some of our plans for WWE 2K17.  We will not get into full details today, as more information will be revealed as we head toward the game’s release on October 11.  Instead, we are offering an overview of several features and focus areas for WWE 2K17.  Let’s jump right in …

GAMEPLAY

With the WWE 2K franchise, we are striving to deliver the most authentic and realistic WWE experience possible.  Fans have been asking us to truly improve the core gameplay experience since we inherited the brand, and we are taking your requests seriously – from controls to presentation to individual features. We’ve shifted the gameplay experience focus from an arcade-centric, fighting game style to simulation-based gameplay, and WWE 2K17 continues pushing in that direction with both improved and new gameplay mechanics.  In WWE 2K17, the fans will, more than ever, get to control the action how and where they want, including competing in the crowd and backstage areas.  Our community asked for the return of playable backstage and crowd areas, so we delivered on this request.  We also greatly improved the responsiveness of gameplay while also updating game systems like Ladders, Taunts and a new secondary submission system.  As always, we added thousands of new animations into WWE 2K17, so there is a lot of new gameplay for everyone to discover and enjoy.  These are just a few of the gameplay improvements we are delivering in WWE 2K17, all of which will provide the most authentic WWE experience to date.

CREATION

The WWE 2K17 Creation Suite enables the WWE Universe to customize, build and share their own unique WWE Superstars, Arenas, Entrances, Shows and more.  For WWE 2K17, we added new creation features, as well as focused on deepening and providing even more options for existing creation features.  For example, we added many more parts, more adjustment options and elements like body hair, all of which add to the game’s massive set of customization options.  We also added a full Highlight Replay system, which allows players to record video highlights from their matches. The video content can be used in our new Create a Video feature, which lets players create videos for use in things like custom entrance Titan Tron videos for created Superstars. We also deepened the Create a Show feature and added a brand new Create a Victory feature to ensure everyone can create the most comprehensive WWE experience possible.  Whether players build their own worlds or simply expand on existing tools, the power is in their hands.

2K SHOWCASE

One of the largest and most difficult decisions we made for WWE 2K17 was to forego building a 2K Showcase.  We designed and contemplated several Showcase ideas, including options surrounding our cover Superstar, Brock Lesnar, but all of them were not viable due to the many historic WWE Superstars needed but not available for inclusion in the game.  In addition, the team is heavily focused on building and delivering great content that fans can enjoy for years to come, while the Showcases only live in games from year to year. In all, we didn’t feel good about creating a Showcase that was not up to our standards and current development vision, so we decided to take that effort and put it into modes our community requests we keep improving: WWE Universe and MyCareer.

WWE UNIVERSE MODE

In WWE Universe Mode, we are working to recreate the drama and excitement seen every week on Raw, SmackDown Live and NXT.  For WWE 2K17, we created a new flow that focuses on these shows.  The shows are what we all watch each week, and now with the recent brand split, are even more important.  Our new Show Presentation system makes players feel like they are playing through a weekly episode of any WWE television or WWE Network program.  We also added more intrigue and possibilities by incorporating run-ins, as well as pre- and post-match attacks.  Just like in WWE, we never know what might happen next.

Even with all these new features, presentation and possibilities, we still felt something was missing: promos.  In turn, WWE 2K17 will deliver a brand new Promo Engine that lets the WWE Superstars express their thoughts and emotions to the WWE Universe and one another.  The Promo Engine creates a new dynamic and brings the experience closer to the actual WWE than ever before.  That’s not all – we also are delivering a completely revamped offering of all Universe Mode cut scenes, including familiar and brand new scenarios. Collectively, WWE 2K17 represents the most comprehensive and authentic WWE Universe we’ve attempted thus far.

MYCAREER

MyCareer also gets some exciting new features for WWE 2K17.  We incorporated the new Promo Engine, so Superstars can express themselves to the WWE Universe and also call out or respond to other WWE Superstars.  Backstage interviews with Renee Young take on a whole new dimension with our new backstage brawling gameplay.  Now more than ever, how a player competes, reacts, what is said and even what attire is worn can make a difference in a Superstar’s journey through the WWE.  At some point, players are also likely to come face to face with Brock Lesnar and his advocate, Paul Heyman.  What happens when confronted by this imposing duo will greatly shape a player’s future career growth in WWE.

WHAT’S NEXT?

The above is a select list of the improvements and additions we are making for WWE 2K17. There is a lot more to discuss in the near future, from the features above to online to all the other components we know you’ll ask about, and we will get into more details as we get closer to the game’s release.  We are excited to start sharing what we are doing with the game and look forward to letting everyone in on all the exciting things in store with WWE 2K17.  After all, the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, is waiting for you in Suplex City.

Oh, and since everyone seems to be speculating – yes – the roster is larger than last year.

We know you will enjoy WWE 2K17.

–Mark Little, Executive Producer of WWE 2K
