Check out the new look and feel of the WWE series as it makes its way to next-gen
It’s no secret here at Sac City Gamer that we love wrestling games.
In fact, we were heartbroken when we heard WWE 2K15 is being pushed back on next-gen consoles to a Nov. 18 release date as opposed to its original Oct. 28 release date.
And though the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game will still make it into wrestling fans’ hands on Oct. 28, having to wait three more weeks for the next-gen version is going to be torture. But we get it, development and polish takes time. As long as the game is as amazing as it looks in the trailer, we can forgive 2K for the delay.
On the other hand, 2K has been pretty tight-lipped when it comes to details about the game thus far, with only bits and pieces of information leaking out by fans who attended shows like Gamescom and GameStop’s California expo. That is aside from the partial roster reveal 2K and WWE hosted recently and some official screenshots and images released by the company.
Well, the moment we’ve all be waiting for finally arrived yesterday as IGN exclusively debuted the next-gen WWE 2K15 gameplay trailer. Weighing in at two minutes and six seconds in length and being accompanied by pure gameplay, entrances, new OMG moves and a plethora of tiny new detail reveals (like the inclusion of Rusev who was previously unannounced for the game’s roster), the trailer is pretty amazing.
Graphically the new game is on a whole other level than what we’ve seen before in a wrestling game. Gameplay looks smooth and 2K seems to be delivering on its promise of lots of new motion-captured moves, full body scans (look at those Wyatts!) and more.
Time will tell if WWE 2K15 will go down in history as one of the greatest wrestling games ever created when it drops on Oct. 28 (PS3 and Xbox 360) and Nov. 18 (PS4 and Xbox One), but for now enjoy some leg drops, dropkicks and powerbombs in the trailer below.
