WWE 2K14 will be released on Oct. 29, and fans of pro wrestling will be able to get their fix as the series has switched developers; and now, the game is giving sneak peeks for the characters' entrances on YouTube.
This week has been a busy week for the YouTube channel as they have released the entrances and finishing moves for a slew of in hagme characters such as: Yokozuna, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Brett Hart, Randy Orton, the Rock, CM Punk, Macho Man, John Cena, and many more.
See all the videos here.
The game features one of the largest rosters ever with 83 characters included. The inclusion of Ultimate Warrior and Macho Man in the game have shocked some fans. Warrior has been on terrible terms with the WWE and its chairman Vince McMahon. Warrior, real name James Hellwig, has publicly bashed the company and a lot of its entertainers, most prominently Hulk Hogan. This will be Warrior's first time ever in a video game.
Another interesting addition to the game is Macho Man Randy Savage. The deceased wrestler was on McMahon's bad list after a number of falling outs with the company, and allegations of a possible scandal with the chairman's daughter (at the time underage).
The inclusion of him in the game is surprising because he has yet to be elected to the WWE Hall of Fame, which most of the wrestling world feels he deserves.
Lastly, Hulk Hogan comes as a shock although he is credited by many for helping make the WWE what it is today.
Hogan was the general manager of rival company, TNA. He recently stepped down from that position and his relationship has been up and down with the company as he has switched allegiances multiple times between WWE, WCW, and TNA.
2K14 will focus on the road to Wrestlemania instead of the traditional story mode campaigns they usually have.
The game will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 29.
