WWE 2K24: Everything We Know



WWE 2K24 Promotional Teaser

2K Games and Visual Concepts are celebrating forty glorious years of WrestleMania with a brand-new entry for the WWE 2K series. That’s right, ten years have passed since 2K14’s celebratory Thirty Years of WrestleMania edition, which is precisely why we, along with countless other Hulk Hogan fans, are beginning to feel our age just a tad. But WWE 2K24 is here, and it’s planning on bringing even more features to the core game modes, as well as a treasure trove of MyFACTION cards and other exclusive rarities for both newcomers and avid collectors alike.

Fortunately for fellow die-hards of the WWE franchise, 2K Games isn’t holding back on 2K24’s release date. Matter of fact, it’s currently due to arrive on all major platforms as early as March, and with a slew of post-launch DLC content packs to follow suit, too. But what else can we expect from the upcoming installment? Here’s everything we can tell you about it based on the information that’s been provided to date.

What Is WWE 2K24?

WWE 2K24 Promotional Teaser

WWE 2K24 is a single-player and online multiplayer third-person wrestling game, and the latest love letter to the world of WrestleMania. Like previous iterations in the 2K series, the 2024 installment will come loaded with a vast array of campaigns, exhibitions, collectibles, and other features. To celebrate the forty-year milestone of WrestleMania, however, the upcoming entry will also introduce a mode titled “Showcase…of the Immortals”—a ballad of iconic moments that will seemingly blend live-action footage with raw gameplay both in and outside of the ring.

In addition to the new Showcase scenario, 2K24 will also pave the way for countless new visual and technical improvements, as well as new MyFACTION cards and other legacy items. So, consider it a definitive edition of the entire 2K series, all compressed into one jam-packed product.

Aside from the Showcase…of the Immortals campaign, 2K24 will also feature the return of MyRISE—a two-for-one single-player campaign that’ll allow players to create their own wrestlers, and with them, conquer the medium and establish a name for themselves. There’ll be two campaigns to embark on, too: Undisputed, and Unleashed, both of which will feature entirely separate rosters and challenges.

“Featuring Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, Mick Foley and others performing MyRISE voiceover for the first time, alongside other Superstars and Legends, expanded rewards, original MyRISE characters and unlockables carrying-over into other game modes, and new environments, MyRISE is more impactful on the overall WWE 2K experience than ever before.”

In addition to MyRISE, 2K24 will also feature MyGM, a “brand management sim” in which players will have the opportunity to build their own teams and navigate a series of Dramas, Championships, and other contracts. What’s more, it’ll also include “Superstar Journey”—a secondary event in which wrestlers will have to earn XP in order to develop their skills and prominence in the industry.

MyFACTION is also returning to the latest installment—a team-building mode in which players must harness the power of four fighters from the WWE Superstars and Legends rosters and thrash it out to secure a spot at the apex of their chosen guild.

“Players can now compete in ranked online QuickPlay with unique rewards and seasonal leaderboards, challenge themselves with Weekly Towers, and take on a revamped Faction Wars 2.0, featuring more real-world factions, more 4v4 match types, a Faction Wars specific reward shop and more.”

As far as gameplay modes travel, 2K24 will adopt all of the traditional modes, and four new ones: Special Guest Referee, Ambulance Match, Casket Match, and Gauntlet Match. “In addition, the Backstage Brawl now features four-player support and new interactive environmental elements—including a working elevator, breakable control room glass, and a vending machine with throwable sodas—while the Royal Rumble now offers support for eight online players in 30-Superstar online matches.”

WWE 2K24 marks the tenth installment in the 2K timeline, with earlier iterations in the series being labeled as WWE SmackDown! and WWE SmackDown. The newest entry in the series will feature Cody Rhodes on its standard cover, whereas the Deluxe Edition will feature Women’s Royal Rumble winners Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley.

According to 2K, “WWE 2K24 features improvements to gameplay throughout, including Super Finishers, the Trading Blows mini-game, top rope dive onto a group of opponents outside the ring, double title matches, new Paybacks and much more.”

”New weapon types, including trash cans, guitars and microphones, plus the ability to throw weapons, allow players to bring the pain,” the description adds. “Also, seven real WWE referees are featured to add to the immersive experience.” So, quite the beefy upgrade, after all.
