WWE 2K Battlegrounds Launches September 18, Gameplay Trailer

WWE 2K Battlegrounds

2K Games has announced the release date for Saber Interactive’s WWE 2K Battlegrounds, along with releasing a gameplay trailer.

Since the cancellation of WWE 2K21, WWE 2K Battlegrounds was announced in its place in April this year. The new game takes a far less serious approach to the mainline WWE 2K wresting games, with stylized designs for legends and superstars, downright superhuman abilities, and ring-based hazards such as alligators and goats.

According to 2K Games, players will be able to brawl through a campaign mode to earn a WWE contract, the online last-man-standing  King of the Battleground, and online exhibition matches and tournaments. Players can even create their own wrestler with the Superstar Creator.

The game is now available to pre-order, with the added bonus of the “Edge Totally Awesome Pre-Order Pack” to unlock wrestler Edge. The Deluxe Edition meanwhile, contains the following:

  • Digital Deluxe Bonus Pack – Raise some hell with Stone Cold Steve Austin, lay the SmackDown with the Attitude Era version of The Rock and get rowdy with Ronda Rousey. The WWE 2K Battlegrounds Digital Deluxe Edition includes three versions of each Superstar.
  • Edge Totally Awesome Pre-Order Pack – WWE 2K Battlegrounds will reek of awesomeness with WWE Hall of Famer Edge, included in the Digital Deluxe Edition.
  • Currency Pack – Includes 1100 Golden Bucks, used to unlock additional Superstars and vanity items.”

You can find the full rundown (via the official website) below.
