WWE 2K15 will be the first game that 2K Games has fully been in charge of, having inherited a partially developed WWE 2K14 from THQ last year, and the publisher is pulling out all the stops for the latest installment.
Developer Visual Concepts will help Yukes to develop this latest entry, and will use its scanning tech, used in the NBA 2K series, to recreate the WWE roster in game. So far around 90 percent of the roster has been fully scanned, but only John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Cesaro, and a classic version of Hulk Hogan have been confirmed as being part of the game’s roster.
The power of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One allow for majorly upgraded hair, skin, and ring attire, and Virtual Concepts scanning technology has captured a variety of facial expressions, so wrestlers can show more emotion in the ring.
A new mo-cap studio that features an actual WWE ring, and a later cut-off date for the inclusion of WWE storylines and content will help ensure that the game feels more like the television show than ever before.
As well as all this, the game’s audio is also getting overhauled with commentators Jerry “The King” Lawler and Michael Cole recording their lines together for the first time to ensure that commentary has a more realistic flow. According to 2K, a total of 30-35 hours of commentary has been recorded for each announcer.
WWE 2K15 will be available from October 28 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
