2K Games’ WWE video game franchise, WWE 2K, has made its Windows PC worldwide debut with the release of WWE 2K15 via Steam.
The WWE 2K15 experience for Windows PC is complete with a roster of notable and rising talent. WWE 2K15 cover Superstar and in-game soundtrack curator, John Cena, is joined by WWE Superstars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Undertaker, Randy Orton, Triple H and WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin, as well as many rising WWE Superstars, including Bray Wyatt, Cesaro, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.
WWE 2K15 offers several fan-favorite modes, including Creation Suite, Universe Mode and the single-player, story-driven 2K Showcase. In the mode, 2K Showcase sees players relive two WWE rivalries – Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels (2002-2004) and John Cena vs. CM Punk (2011-2013) – through 33 distinct matches with documentary-style video packages of classic WWE footage, authentic WWE Superstar commentary and cinematic cut scenes. Bonus historical objectives unlock new WWE Superstars and Championship titles, as well as alternate entrance and ring gear, that can be used in other WWE 2K15 game modes.
For the first time in franchise history, WWE 2K15 also introduces a new element to the gameplay experience through a career-driven mode – MyCareer – that will serve as a building block for future titles. In MyCareer, players begin their journey at the WWE Performance Center, where they are mentored by the facility’s head trainer, Bill DeMott.
Players go on to compete on NXT, where they encounter a roster of current and future WWE Superstars, including Rusev, Bo Dallas, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn and Corey Graves. After battling at NXT, players move up to WWE’s main roster to compete for the ultimate goal of winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Overall, MyCareer offers an engaging gameplay experience with extensive replay value, in particular when players experience the mode as both fan favorites and rule breakers.
