[adsense250itp]WWE 2K14 will include the 30 Years of Wrestlemania mode, a game mode that showcases the most memorable Wrestlemania matches, 2K Sports announced.
The single-player game mode takes players through 45 of the most iconic matches in Wrestlemania history spanning through five separate eras. Matches featured in the 30 Years of Wrestlemania mode include Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant in Wrestlemania 3, The Rock vs. Hollywood Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania 18 and The Rock vs. John Cena at Wrestlemania 28.
Much like the classic matchups featured in 2K Sports’ NBA 2K12, matches in 30 Years of Wrestlemania will include era-specific arenas, WWE Superstar entrances, ring attire, screen filters and presentation elements. Fans who never saw the original bouts will be caught up to speed with special WWE-produced video packages and in-game cutscenes.
The game mode will reward players who perform objectives based on the real match, following in the footsteps of WWE 2K13’s Attitude Era mode. By making matches similar to their real-life counterparts, gamers can earn playable characters, alternate costumes, new arenas and WWE archive photography.
In addition, 2K Sports announced the roster reveal for the 30 Years of Wrestlemania mode will take place live on Twitch.TV on Aug. 17. The event will take place from WWE SummerSlam Axxess and will be hosted by Jim Ross, Jerry “The King” Lawler and Damien Sandow.
It is the first year the annual WWE title will be under control of 2K Games parent company Take Two after the company reached an agreement with THQ for the rights to WWE games.
WWE 2K14 is set to release Oct. 29 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A version of the game for next-gen consoles is not expected to release. The Rock will grace the cover of the game.
Players who pre-order the game will get exclusive access to The Ultimate Warrior as a playable character in the game. Fans can also purchase the WWE 2K14 Phenom Edition and get real and in-game extras featuring long-time WWE superstar Undertaker.
