We knew that 2K decided to bring the heat in this year’s WWE 2K18. With the largest roster to date and an all new graphics engine, WWE 2K18 looks to be huge. Now, 2K has just unveiled a brand new mode making its debut. This year, players can embark on the new Road To Glory.
WWE 2K18 Road To Glory & MyPlayer
Be sure to check out the trailer on the Road To Glory mode. This year, 2K wanted to bring a new player experience focusing on choice and progression. This comes in the form of MyPlayer and the Road To Glory mode.
MyPlayer explores several unique fighting styles that feel and play differently from one another. They act as character classes. In addition, each MyPlayer can be upgraded and customized as you progress through two modes. In WWE 2K18, players can use their MyPlayers to progress in both a solo MyCareer and the multiplayer Road To Glory.
MyPlayer comes equipped with its own menu that includes a portal to both the single and multiplayer progression modes. Furthermore, the menu has what 2K is calling the MyPLAYER Wizard. The wizard is a simplified version of this WWE 2K18’s robust creation suite. The options are limited within the wizard, however, you can customize your MyPlayer in epic detail once you finish the basics.
As mention before, MyPlayers are equipped with a unique fighting style of choice. Each style focuses on two of the main tower attributes. All attributes in MyPLAYER are grouped into 10 attribute towers.
- Stamina and Promo
The promo attribute is unique to the MyCareer mode. You can view all the sub-attributes for each Tower inside the Attributes screen. Each fighting style has its own set of skills and abilities unlocked by default. The rest can be unlocked in time. However, each fighting style cannot use every attribute or skill. Below you can find the list of unique styles and their strengths.
- High Flyer – Agility and Speed;
- Showboat – Stamina and Reversals;
- Striker – Striking and Stamina;
- Technician – Technique and Grappling;
- Brawler – Toughness and Athleticism;
- Strong Style – Grappling and Reversals;
- Powerhouse – Power and Grappling;
- Giant – Power and Toughness.
