PS3 and 360 owners who still “layeth the smacketh down” in WWE 2K14, will no longer be able to once the month of October has ended. Publisher 2K has revealed today via tweet, that the game’s server will be discontinued on the 31st at 11:59PM.

Players will no longer be able to participate in online matches, upload or download created wrestlers via community creations.

Maybe it is time to upgrade to WWE 2K15, or better yet WWE 2K16. This year’s iteration will feature the largest roster yet, with over 120 playable wrestlers.

WWE 2K16 launches on the 27th, for PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin is WWE 2K16’s Cover Superstar

austin-cover

WWE Hall of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin will grace the cover of this year’s WWE video game. In an article on WWE.com, the Texas Rattlesnake offered his thoughts on following 2K’s recent selections, John Cena (2K15) and The Rock (2K14).

“I’ve had the privilege of working with 2K to support the WWE 2K franchise, and now I’m absolutely honored to serve as the WWE 2K16 cover Superstar,” said Stone Cold Steve Austin. “No disrespect to the previous and extremely deserving WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne ‘The Rock®’ Johnson and John Cena® – but it’s about time the franchise raised some hell with yours truly on the cover. I look forward to injecting a dose of ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ into this year’s game and overall campaign.”

WWE 2K16 will launch on October 27, 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. 2K promises it will have the largest roster ever in a WWE game, with over 120 playable characters.

WWE 2K15 Dev Working on a Way to Deal with those Pesky Online Spammers and How They Should do It

wwe2k

Opponents spamming you with repeated running attacks, has been the bane of online matches in past WWE games. Unfortunately WWE 2K15 is also ripe with players who resort to sprinting at you as soon as the match starts, and follow it up with either a strike or a grapple. Combine that with the game’s somewhat dodgy counter system (which features a very small window of timing), with any latency issue and you’ll more often than not, find yourself on the receiving end of a nasty DDT, Clothesline etc.

The player then waits for your wrestler to get back to his or her feet, before doing the exact same thing again. This process is repeated throughout the entire match, until the player has done enough damage and is able to hit their finisher to pick up the win. Even if you manage to counter their running attacks/grapples and go on the offensive, once they manage to counter you, they go right back to their bread and butter tactic.

Thankfully those over at 2K are working on a way to put an end to this annoyance. When I asked the  game’s official twitter account if they were working on a way to handle online spammers, they answered “we are! We’ll get ’em once and for all!”.

My Personal take:

I for one am certainly glad to know that the developer is actually attempting to fix this issue, instead of just leaving it be. This is incredibly annoying to have to deal with and also results in some ridiculously boring matches. I’m not going to lie, actually getting the W against players like that despite all their spamming is satisfying but the experience is mostly a boring and frustrating affair.

In terms of how they should deal with the spammers, I feel they should make the attacks do less damage over time. Severely decreasing the amount of momentum players earn every time they spam the moves, while increasing the amount stamina required to perform said move, would make the thought of using that tactic less than ideal. Hopefully whatever they choose to implement works in the end, so more players will resort to playing fair and not exploiting the game’s mechanics for an easy win.

Stay tuned for more info as it is revealed.

[Update] Bo Dallas in WWE 2K15; MyCareer Details Coming Next Week

Bo-Dallas-1

Update #2: Sami Zayn has also been confirmed.

 

Update: 2K games has confirmed that Bo Dallas and Adrian Neville are in fact in WWE 2K15.

 

 Original story as follows:

It seems WWE 2K15’s official twitter account may have inadvertently (Or not) revealed another inclusion to the upcoming wrestling title’s roster. Anyone who has been following knows the official roster was partially revealed just last month, with 2K Games promising a full reveal in the future. Many noticed that a lot of the show’s current roster of superstars were excluded including former NXT Champ Bo Dallas. Well good news Bo fans, it looks like he may have made the cut.

The game’s official twitter page sent out a few tweets earlier, live from WWE’s Performance Center for coverage on the PS4 and Xbox One’s exclusive MyCareer mode.

As stated above the MyCareer mode is exclusive to the current gen versions of WWE 2K15 and will see players take their created wrestler through a singleplayer story; fighting their way through the ranks of WWE’s developmental program NXT, before taking their place among the main event stars on Raw and Smackdown.

What does this have to do with Bo Dallas possibly being in the game? I was getting to that, with this tweet.

As you can see in the picture WWE superstar Cesaro is joined by current NXT Heavyweight Champ Adrian Neville and rival Sami Zayn — who were also inadvertently revealed  via achievements, and Bo Dallas.

It seems obvious that Bo will be in the game, otherwise he wouldn’t be there helping to promote the MyCareer mode. Also 2K has also been release short videos featuring WWE superstars replying to fans commenting on the title’s official gameplay trailer. This video features Bo responding to fan wondering if he was in the game or not.

 

We shall see come next week, when more info is released.

 

WWE 2K15 will launch on October 28, 2014 for PS3 and Xbox 360, November 18 for PS4 and Xbox One.

CM Punk Not Happy With His Inclusion in WWE 2K15

wwe-2k15-cm-punk-poster-crop_960.0.0_cinema_640.0-1407761534

Many fans were happy to learn that former WWE Superstar CM Punk was confirmed to be on the roster for WWE 2K15, despite him leaving the company earlier this year on not so nice terms. Not only that but Punk will star alongside John Cena, Triple H and Shawn Michaels in the title’s 2K Showcase mode, which focuses on superstar rivalries.

The only person who doesn’t seem happy about CM Punk’s inclusion, is CM Punk himself. According to wrestling.com via Wrestling Observer, Punk’s legal team sent the WWE a 22-page letter over royalties and primarily his likeness being used in the game.

There hasn’t been any confirmation but apparently Punk’s royalty checks stopped coming in after he breached his contract. In the developers defense, the roster was put in place before he quit and it isn’t like the knew his relationship with the company would be strained.

No word yet on if this will have a negative impact on the game’s October release, as 2K Games haven’t released an official statement on the situation. Stay tuned to RGN for more info.

Gamescom 2014: Here’s Two More Off-Screen Gameplay Videos For WWE 2K15

cesaro2

More WWE 2k15 gameplay from Gamescom 2014 has surfaced online thanks to lucky attendees with their smartphones and cameras. This time around fans can watch a No Holds Barred Match between Cesaro and Randy Orton and a normal but slightly longer match between John Cena and the aforementioned Cesaro.

The gameplay is from the PS4 version of the game and thankfully the video quality is better (720P) this time around. Sadly the attendees playing were not that good, so don’t expect super exciting match-ups. Check them out below.

Here’s Your First Screenshot of WWE 2K15

wwe-2k15-cover

Current WWE World Heavyweight Champion has revealed via twitter an in-game screenshot of him staring down long time rival Randy Orton upcoming WWE 2K15 video game.

Safe to say the visuals are a step up from last year’s title. It is also scary accurate, no doubt thanks in part to Visual Concepts’ involvement this time around. VC handles the motion capture tech used in the NBA 2K games.

 

 

Here’s an even better look below.

[Update]Rumor: Is This WWE 2K15’s Full Roster?

Bray Wyatt

Updated:

It seems that the list has been debunked by 2k sports themselves. Dualshockers reached out to them in an effort to learn of the list’s legitimacy.

“I can let you know that the list isn’t accurate and we’ll be announcing the roster on August 16.”

Dang… too bad.

Just last weeks it was announced that fans will see the reveal of WWE 2K15’s roster next month during Summerslam Weekend . Now it appears the full roster of wrestlers have been leaked online. According to The Better Gaming Bureau, someone who claims to have gotten their hands on Game Informer’s August magazine issue is the one responsible for the leak.

This seems like a Bolievable (WWE Fans get this) list as many of the names on here are without a doubt going to be in the game. Many are active WWE superstars (Bray Wyatt, Kofi Kingston), really popular part-timers (The Rock, Brock Lesnar) and retired Legends (Shawn Micheals, Yokozuna).

The inclusion of NXT superstars such as Tyler Breeze (Never heard of you), Sami Zayn (You either), makes it seem a little far fetched and more like a wishlist but with the growing popularity of WWE’s developmental program it does make sense to include the up and comers. Regardless, they’re just more poor souls who’ll be buried by The Undertaker this fall.
