WWE 2K15: My Career Mode Detailed; Dev Calls it a “Sports RPG Hybrid”
WWE 2K15 this year will feature a “My Career” mode that promises a more vigorous single-player experience, compared to previous titles where players pretty much played through historic matches.
You start with the character creation screen with its limited options. Once your character is created, you join the WWE Performance Center where you’ll be placed under Bill DeMott, your trainer.
He’ll start by giving you objectives to complete in training matches against randomly generated opponents. You can’t really expect to face off the superstars at this point right? With the completion of objectives, you slowly level up and gain skill points to upgrade your character.
Upon graduating from the Performance Center, you move on to NXT. Here William Regal is your GM, and he will put you against the likes of Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, Bo Dallas and Corey Graves.
Beating them to a pulp will get you the attention of Triple H, who will call you up to WWE and from here your real career begins.
The game’s My Career mode is potentially an RPG in itself. According to 2K Sports, players can choose to be the good or bad guy, or go back and forth. Your decisions end up gaining friends or enemies, and have an effect on the story itself.
You can get called out by a superstar rival, and get help by a friend that you managed to gain some time back, or not at all, depending on your earlier actions. Interestingly, updates on your career will be played out over social media as well. Yes, you can actually have raging wars on Twitter inside the game.
You don’t have to replay a match to move through the story. If you lose a match, you simply move forward. The game also doesn’t enforce you to hire a manager, but you can do nonetheless.
WWE 2K15 is scheduled for release on October 28 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and November 18 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
