WWE 2K18 Gameplay

On the dawn of WWE’s SummerSlam event, 2K held a media conference for WWE 2K18 and revealed fresh gameplay and a ton of information. This comes in addition to the recent roster reveal and superstar entrances.

Gameplay, Entrances And Much More

1. Gameplay

Lots gameplay has been popping up all over YouTube and there is a decent amount of small and large details to cover. I recommend taking a look at Macho T’s series as he does a good job of breaking down lots of aspects from the 2K conference. In his series, he covers things like new royal rumble mechanics, weight classes, elimination chamber entrances and so much more. New matches have also been revealed.

  • First Blood
  • 2 out of 3 Falls
  • Perform Finisher to End a Match

As official releases continue, we will keep you updated here at Sports Gamers Online. Be sure to check out these videos on WWE 2K18 gameplay.

2. Roster

Several YouTubers who attended the event have released a ton of impression videos. Many feature new gameplay and more superstar models. In their videos, you can see the likes of AJ Styles, Baron Corbin, Samoa Joe as well as John Cena. If you’ve been following our WWE 2K18 coverage, you’ll be happy to know at least three members from our list have made the roster.

Here’s a recap of the first roster reveal courtesy of Macho T.

Here’s the full list of superstars currently revealed by IGN:

This is merely 47 of the rumored 200 superstar roster list. It has been said that the full 200 will be composed of RAW, Smackdown Live!, NXT, WCW and ECW superstars. We know Rob Van Dam will be apart of the ECW roster so it will be interesting to see who else makes the cut.

3. Entrances

If you didn’t know, 2K has officially revealed two faction entrances that look incredible. The new lighting and new graphics overhaul bring a huge bump in realism. Also, the Sanity entrance reveals two crucial things. First, we can confirm men and women can be in stables together again. And secondly, there are four man entrances. However, take that with a grain of salt; it is highly likely that the Sanity entrance, an NWO entrance and two generic ones will be the only ones available.

4. And Much More

We have the 10 superstar ratings who were made available in the demo during the 2K conference.

  • TJ Perkins – 77
  • AJ Styles – 89
  • Baron Corbin – 86
  • Bobby Roode – 88
  • Eric Young – 83
  • John Cena – 93
  • Neville – 84
  • Randy Orton – 90
  • Seth Rollins – 92
  • Samoa Joe – 91

It seems like RAW superstars will get the higher end of the ratings spectrum with the Cruiserweights scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

Several YouTubers can confirm that the game features a red/blue background theme representing WWE shows. In addition, crowds have been improved and feel alive. There is no shortage of information for WWE 2K18. Be sure to continue to stay tuned here as we cover more of it.
