WWE 2K14 – 30 Years Of WrestleMania Mode Unveiled
2K reveals the campaign for WWE 2K14, which will take players on a journey through three decades of wrestling awesomeness.
2K has announced that WWE 2K14 will feature an all-new single player campaign mode called 30 Years Of WrestleMania, featuring some of the most memorable WrestleMania moments of the past 3 decades, and one of the largest rosters ever. Fueled by nostalgia, just like with WWE 13’s Attitude Era mode, 30 Years Of WrestleMania Mode features legendary matches such as the battle between Andre The Giant and Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 3, The “Icon Vs. Icon” match between The Rock and Hollywood Hogan at WrestleMania 18, and John Cena Vs. The Rock at WrestleMania 28. The mode was inspired by the upcoming 30th anniversary of the WrestleMania event, taking place on April 6th, 2014 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
“For nearly three decades, WWE has inspired millions worldwide through the historic, cultural and undeniable phenomenon that is WrestleMania,” said Chris Snyder, Senior Director of Marketing at 2K. “Through the 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode in WWE 2K14, players can now relive their favorite nostalgic and recent WrestleMania moments – from an incredible roster to authentic presentation and match play – in a unique and engaging way.”
Featuring five distinct eras, WWE 2K14’s 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode boasts painstakingly recreated arenas, WWE Superstar entrances and ring attires, as well as era-specific graphics, screen filters and other presentation elements. Just like WWE 13 before it, the mode features WWE-produced video packages and in-game, cinematic cut scenes that hype up the matches and provide information on key matches. Historical objectives are back as well, encouraging players to recreate the memorable spots in any given match. Doing so unlocks rewards like additional playable WWE Superstars, alternate attire options, new arenas and WWE archive photography.
2K also revealed that the WWE 2K14 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode Roster Reveal will be shown live on Twitch TV at www.twitch.tv/2K from WWE SummerSlam Axxess on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 12:30 p.m. PDT. The reveal will be hosted by WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Jerry “The King” Lawler as well as WWE Superstar and current “Mr. Money In The Bank” Damien Sandow.
Fans who pre-order WWE 2K14 will receive Ultimate Warrior at no extra cost on launch day on October 29, 2013 in North America and November 1, 2013 internationally.
