OK, old-school fans of the squared circle, 2K Sports has some killer news today regarding WWE 2K14: a new mode called WWE 2K14 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode. This single-player campaign will feature iconic WrestleMania matches and a roster spanning three decades of WWE history. Andre the Giant vs Hulk Hogan, anyone? Yep, it’s in there.
Starting with the inaugural WrestleMania, the nostalgic single-player journey takes players through more than 45 matches, including the legendary match between Hulk Hogan vs Andre the Giant for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 3. Also included will be WWE 2K14 cover Superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson vs. “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan in an “Icon vs. Icon” match at WrestleMania 18, and the much-anticipated WrestleMania 28 main event featuring The Rock vs John Cena.
This new WWE 2K14 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode is inspired by WrestleMania 30, which is scheduled for April 6, 2014, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
The WWE 2K14 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.
