2K’s new wrestling game arrives just in time to get fans pumped for WrestleMania 38 in April 2022. It’s been two years since we’ve seen a refresh of this 2K Games series and WWE 2K22 brings a host of new features and playable characters to the franchise.
WWE 2K22 offers additional WWE characters and/or DLC and other exclusive goodies. There are several different versions of WWE 2K22 including the Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition, Cross-Gen Digital Bundle and nWo 4-Life Digital Edition to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the New World Order faction.
What’s new in WWE 2K22?
There’s a two year gap between WWE 2K22 vs WWE 2K20 and the new game looks, feels, plays, and as its slogan cleverly suggests, “hits different”. Over its predecessor, WWE 2K22 features a redesigned game engine, new controls, upgraded graphics and all-new game modes.
WWE legend Rey Mysterio graces the cover of WWE 2K22 — a nod to the high-flying acrobatics and intricate maneuvers of masked Mexican lucha libre wrestlers. The game’s returning 2K Showcase lets players relive iconic moments behind Mysterio’s most memorable matches. For the first time ever, players can share all their creations with the global community with cross-platform sharing.
Another franchise-first is the introduction of MyGM in which you step into the role of a WWE General Manager from drafting WWE Superstars and Legends to creating rivalries and setting championship s matches. Meanwhile, the game’s new MyFACTION mode lets you collect and manage your own dream faction nWo-style with weekly events and updates.
