Last year’s WWE video game was celebrated for its depiction of the Attitude era, which detailed the late 90s/early 2000 wrestling boom period that many are still quite fond of to this very day.
So, how will the upcoming “WWE 2K14” top last year’s “WWE 2K13?” By celebrating the “Grandest Spectacle in all of (Sports) Entertainment”, aka Wrestlemania. All 30 years of it.
Contained within the game will be the 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode, which seeks to recreate nearly three decades of WWE history with more than 45 matches. Only three have been revealed thus far: Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III, Hollywood Hogan vs. The Rock at WrestleMania X8, and John Cena vs. The Rock at WrestleMania XXVIII.
It is also claimed that “WWE 2K14” will have “the greatest roster in franchise history” and includes such luminaries as The Macho Man Randy Savage, Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Ultimate Warrior, and The Undertaker (though we already knew about those last two).
The entire roster will be revealed later this weekend, during SummerSlam, which is the WWE’s biggest PPV during this time of the year. Hopefully Jake the Snake Roberts and the Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase will make the cut.
