Finish the story time

One of the best-looking efforts in years from 2K and now-series developer Visual Concepts, WWE 2K24 looks like a worthy addition to the long history that the publisher has with WWE wrestling titles. Not only have early looks at the title been visually impressive, but there’s a massive roster of current and past stars, and a whole mess of match types to use ’em in.

And that doesn’t even begin to get into it either. The full title boasts another revision of the creation engine, so fans can make and share their own superstars, the twin MyRISE modes, the 2K Showcase… Of The Immortals, and a whole lot more.

WWE 2K24 is a testament to the development team’s world champion-level commitment to excellence,” said Greg Thomas, President at Visual Concepts. “Topping our best efforts each year has become a challenge we look forward to, and we’re especially proud of what we’ve achieved in our improvements to gameplay and overall quality.”
