Yukes and NBA 2K14’s Visual Concepts are going to be working together on WWE 2K15. We have the first details from the game courtesy of WWEShop and also a screenshot which I say looks rather good. The game will be released later this year on October 28th for the PS4 and Xbox One.
Additionally, Take Two have also announced a Hulkmania Edition for the game which will be in limited quantities of 25,000 units. Once it’s sold out it’s gone forever they say. It will be priced at $99.99 and includes a “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan vinyl figure, an exclusive collectible art card with Hogan’s autograph, and an exclusive DLC content for both Hulk Hogan and Sting. It also contains piece of ring canvas.
The screenshot can be seen above. The main cover features John Cena. Here are the first details of the game.
– Collaborative Development: WWE 2K15 will see Visual Concepts join forces with long-standing developer Yuke’s to bring the WWE video game experience to next-generation formats. Praised for its efforts on 2K’s prominent NBA 2K series, Visual Concepts will bring its established pedigree to WWE 2K15 through design processes, gameplay innovations, commitment to sports simulation authenticity and more.
– Gameplay Enhancements: WWE 2K15 will significantly improve the core gameplay experience through key additions and improvements designed to elevate the franchise now and into the future. From brand new motion capture technology to animation advancements to a host of to-be-announced features, WWE 2K15 will deliver a premium sports simulation in line with WWE’s television and live event offerings.
– Next-Gen Superstars: WWE 2K15 will take advantage of the high profile capture technology seen in the NBA 2K series, with focus on the head, body and signature facial features, to create an unprecedented level of model authenticity (PS4, Xbox One only). Additional presentation improvements, including lighting changes, will dramatically impact the appearance of featured WWE Superstars and Divas, resulting in a highly life-like and natural look.
– Feel the Noise: WWE 2K15 will further replicate the WWE television experience through extensive improvements to audio depth and quality. In-game commentary will see more than five times the amount of recorded lines in comparison with previous franchise iterations. In addition, all in-ring sound effects will be overhauled to further enhance the action.
