More On: WWE 2K Battlegrounds


2K released a brand new trailer today for WWE 2K Battlegrounds and a lot of details about the game to go with it. Battlegrounds is this years official WWE game as WWE 2K21 was canceled. That's probably for the better after 2K20 was an abysmal mess. 

WWE 2K Battlegrounds will feature over 70 wrestlers, both current day and legends including Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, The Fiend, Kofi Kingston, Becky Lynch, The Bella Twins, Drew McIntyre, Asuka, Yokozuna and more. More Superstars will be added to the game over time. 

The press release also confirmed what game modes we can expect in the game

  • Exhibition: Take part in Exhibition matches at home or on-the-go, anytime and anywhere, in local and online multiplayer action for up to four players
  • Campaign: Join the adventures of seven new WWE hopefuls - created exclusively for WWE 2K Battlegrounds - in Campaign mode and compete for the chance to earn a WWE contract. Along the way, you’ll unlock new arenas, inspired by locations such as the Everglades, a military-style Bootcamp, Mexico, New York and Scotland, while receiving guidance from legendary personalities including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin® and Paul Heyman™
  • King of the Battleground: Take on all comers in the King of the Battleground, an online, last-man-standing mode where four players start in the ring while four more wait outside to enter, challenging you to run the gauntlet and defeat them all;
  • Online: Test your toughness in online tournaments and Exhibition matches.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds will release on September 18th for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch and Stadia. The game will retail for $39.99 for the standard edition or $49.99 for the digital deluxe edition which will includes all versions of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock and Ronda Rousey unlocked from the start and includes 1100 bonus golden bucks. Those who pre-order the game will get Edge as a playable character.
