UPDATE: WWE 2K gameplay details, cover stars, roster news and pre-order information has been officially revealed by 2K.
Roman Reigns and Becky Lynch have been officially announced as cover stars, while Chyna has been confirmed as a playable character.
MyCareer also lets players compete as male and female characters, and mixed tag team matches will now be included.
Perhaps controversially, the game introduces a service model, which ties in to future content.
“The game will also introduce a new service model – WWE 2K20 Originals – set to deliver a wealth of 2K Showcase add-on content for player exploration beyond the game’s initial launch,” 2K explains.
“Each of the WWE 2K20 Originals will present a new playable world and its own unique theme, with more details to be announced in the coming months. WWE 2K20 Originals is downloadable content that may require additional purchase.”
ORIGINAL: WWE 2K20 fans are counting down to the official reveal by publisher 2K.
The WWE 2K team has been hyping the game’s first gameplay reveal since releasing the first teaser last week.
Taking place today (August 5), 2K will officially unveil the cover star, alongside gameplay footage, pre-order details and roster information.
That’s according to a post on Twitter, which reads: “The #WWE2K20 cover reveal kicks off on August 5 with more details than we’ve ever shared at announce and your first look at game footage! Follow our social accounts so you won’t miss a thing.”
Of course, with the official reveal only a few hours away, most of these details appear to have leaked early.
This includes the debut WWE 2K20 trailer, which seemingly confirms the cover stars for the new game.
As you can see by watching the trailer below, WWE 2K20 will have two cover stars.
The trailer features a whole host of past and present WWE Superstars, including Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Sheamus, Braun Stroman and Velveteen Dream.
The video continues with a surprise appearance by Becky Lynch, who smashes through the glass ceiling.
It ends with an exchange between Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns, followed by a look at some new gameplay and the release date.
More details appear to have been leaked over on Reddit, including plans to release a special Smackdown 20th Anniversary Edition.
The SmackDown 20th Anniversary Edition is said to come with a ton of bonus content, as well as a Deluxe version of the game itself.
Fans who purchase the Smackdown Edition will reportedly be able to play as The Rock in his signature $500 Shirt, as well as a Rock N’ Sock Connection version of Mankind and Hulk Hogan.
That’s on top of a collectible acrylic piece autographed by either Kurt Angle, Rey Mysterio, or Edge.
You can even expect a piece of the SmackDown ring skirt used between 2002 to 2008.
But perhaps most exciting of all is the ability to play as Chyna, who hasn’t appeared in a WWE video game for almost 20 years.
WWE 2K20 has an October 22 release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Express Online will update this article as more gameplay details and roster information is revealed by 2K Games.
