About WWE All Stars

The revolutionary new addition to THQ’s distinguished WWE videogame portfolio and debut release from THQ San DiegoTM, WWE All Stars bridges generations with a fun, fresh and fast-paced experience inside the virtual ring. Delivering one of the greatest rosters ever assembled in a WWE videogame, WWE All Stars includes current-day WWE Superstars and legendary talent such as John Cena, The Rock, Andre the Giant, Triple H, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, The Miz, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Rey Mysterio, and for the first time ever in a THQ-produced WWE videogame, “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Each roster member boasts a distinctive and highly stylized appearance, adding to the overall atmosphere and attitude exuding from the on-screen action.

WWE All Stars encompasses a fun, intuitive and approachable gameplay style, creating a highly competitive environment and an engaging spectacle. Packed with high-flying and hard-hitting action, players explore a variety of responsive quick and strong grapples, standing and running attacks, as well as combination sequences. Everyone on the power-packed roster is equipped with individual abilities, signature moves and renowned finishers to create the ultimate in-ring experience. In addition, offering four classes of competitor – Acrobat, Big Man, Brawler and Grappler – WWE All Stars provides players with WWE Legends and WWE Superstars who have distinct advantages and techniques to which other classes do not have access, including specific combinations and unique abilities.

WWE All Stars also recognizes the greatest matchups in WWE history may not have happened yet – until now. In Fantasy Warfare Mode, players will pick a side – WWE Legends or WWE Superstars – and compete in a series of fantasy matches that pit WWE talent with similar personal or in-ring attributes against one another to determine the greatest of all time. Informative and engaging video packages produced by WWE set up each of the pairings and match objectives.
