2K gives us all the details for "My Career" mode in WWE 2K15

by: Nathan - - 0 Comments

2K pulled back the curtain today on "My Career" mode for WWE 2K15, the first ever comprehensive, career-driven mode in WWE games history and it sounds incredible. 

First players will go into the Create a Wrestler system and players will start in the WWE Performance Center where you will be trained by former WWE Superstar and head coach Bill Demott. you will compete various activities until you are able to secure a spot on NXT. From there you will continue your journey through multiple matches and objectives.

At NXT you will have to make your way through WWE's newest superstars including Rusev, Bo Dallas, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn  and Corey Graves who are also confirmed to be in the game as playable superstars as well. From there, players make their way to the main roster as they secure spots on Raw, Smackdown, PPV events, and Wrestle mania where players compete for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. 

My Career will also include decisions made throughout the journey including alliances, rivalries, social media interactions which will impact the players personality traits and the way the crowd reacts to them. Players will earn tons of rewards including new ways to upgrade their attributes, acquire new attributes, moves, unlock managers and clothing that can be worn by the players. 

Finally, the game will include multiple branching storylines, surprises and twists that will add tons of replay value to the game. 

Now, I'm afraid I've got some bad news. My Career will only be available on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game so if you are still playing on last gen systems, you will have to upgrade in order to play this mode. I was upset that WWE 2K15 got pushed back 3 weeks on PS4 and Xbox one but it sounds like this mode will be well worth the wait. This is something that I have been waiting for in a WWE game for a long time. 

WWE 2K15 hits Xbox One and PS4 on November 18th.
