WWE 2K Battlegrounds, announced last April, now has a release date. 2K Games has confirmed that the title will be available starting September 18 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox One X and Switch. With a roster of over 70 WWE Superstars at launch and many more to be released later, WWE 2K Battlegrounds is also available for pre-order.
For generations, WWE has bewitched children with its incredible moves, which in theory should send each of the athletes in the competition to the hospital every 5 seconds. The magic of wrestling is what makes them possible, and with WWE 2K Battlegrounds, Saber Interactive also plans to add a pinch of it.
Developed by Saber Interactive, the game offers a new and exciting approach to the world of WWE, both for the most passionate fans and for the most casual players, with different game modes:
- Exhibition: Take part in Exhibition matches at home or on-the-go, anytime and anywhere, in local and online multiplayer action for up to four players;
- Campaign: Join the adventures of seven new WWE hopefuls—created exclusively for WWE 2K Battlegrounds—in Campaign mode and compete for the chance to earn a WWE contract. 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;
- King of the Battleground: Take on all comers in the King of the Battleground, an online, last-man-standing mode where four players start in the ring while four more wait outside to enter, challenging you to run the gauntlet and defeat them all;
- Online: Test your toughness in online tournaments and Exhibition matches.
