WWE 2K14 Covers 30 Years of WrestleMania in New Campaign Mode


A new single-player campaign mode called 30 Years of WrestleMania joins the stacked roster of content featured in WWE 2K14. As the title suggests, this new mode will take players through 45 legendary matches spanning three decades of WrestleMania lore, including such iconic showdowns as Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant at WrestleMania 3 and The Rock vs. John Cena at WrestleMania 28.

During WWE SummerSlam Axxess this Saturday, August 17 at 12:30 p.m. PDT, WWE’s Jim Ross, Jerry “The King” Lawler and Damien Sandow will reveal the full 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode roster via 2K’s Twitch.TV page at www.twitch.tv/2K. A couple nostalgic favorites I’m pulling for are Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart at WrestleMania 10 and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat vs. “Macho Man” Randy Savage at WrestleMania 3. Actually, I’ll take as many matches from WrestleManias 3 and 10 as 2K wants to offer. For me, those were the two best events in WWF/WWE history.

Here’s a bit more about how the campaign is set up, followed by a new gallery with screenshots and character renders. WWE 2K14 will be available October 29th on PS3 and Xbox 360.

WWE 2K14’s 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode will organize matches into a progressive single-player campaign, with the format curated by five distinct eras in WWE history. Unique presentation elements transport players through the different eras, including authentically recreated arenas, WWE Superstar entrances and ring attires, as well as era-specific graphics, screen filters and other presentation elements. In addition, extensive WWE-produced video packages and in-game, cinematic cut scenes set the stage and provide detailed background information on key matches. Historical objectives encourage players to authentically replicate popular match moments, while completing objectives will unlock a host of rewards, including additional playable WWE Superstars, alternate attire options, new arenas and WWE archive photography.
