WWE 2K14 let the cat out of the bag at their SummerSlam Axxess weekend event. During this event they showed gameplay and revealed the roster to 30 Years Of Wrestlemania Mode.

Things Begun on Friday, August 16 when 2k showed off some gameplay as well as give us two unannounced wrestlers from the main card that included Daniel Bryan and the recent coming out of the closet  superstar, Darren Young. This will be Darren Young’s first time in the game. With this news of Darren Young being in the game I have no doubt his tag team partner Titus O’Neil will be in the game. This isn’t confirmed but it’s common since.

Very impressed by the gameplay 2K showed this week. Though their seems to be some issues with the game that can be seen if you watch the livestream. I’m not sure if there is issues with the game sound or if it was from livestream difficulties but I’m sure if it is 2K will get it done by release. The gameplay showed changes in areas such more area specific OMG Moments. From Daniel Bryan’s DDTing John Cena on the apron to Ryback punting Dolph Ziggler”s skull against the ring post, the game is ready to give you more highlights than ever before. The dragging the player elements have changed to where you actually grab them by the head/neck to wear you want to put them. Their was many changes in the reversal system which was very evident and seen much smoother than before. From Breaking Point Submissions being used as limb targeting moves to catapult finishers the game is looking sharp. 2K mentioned numerous times during the livestream about the little things. I can tell you its the little things that show change in this year’s title that warrants it as a brand new title that might be worth the purchase.

I took the liberty of breaking down the rosters so far for 30 Years Of Wrestlemania and the Main Roster. I included some superstars that are simple common since sure-ins to be in the game due to the facts of what has been announced already.

Now that the roster  has been seen we get a since of the matches we might see in Wrestlemania Mode. Some ideas that come in mind are Macho Man vs Ultimate Warrior, Edge vs Mick Foley, Goldberg vs Lesnar, just to name a few. I’m even going to go the extra mile to see if Jerry Lawler and Micheal Cole are in the game we could see their Wrestlemania match as well. This is coming from past assets of the 2K cover contest that included Jerry Lawler and Micheal Cole but hese two aren’t confirmed yet by THQ.

2K biggest announcement to the roster in my view is the inclusion of Razor Ramon and Goldberg. You could hear the crowd go crazy when these two were seen. Bryan Williams also confirmed that Goldberg’s entrance is more than what it seems and for the first time in video game history his entrance will include him coming from the backstage area to the arena like wrestling fans have witnessed on TV.

The game is looking to be better than what it seemed when the first trailer was released. I’m impressed and looking forward to play. The Roster Reveal was entertaining to watch. The antics between Damien Sandow and suprise Hall Of Famer “Nature Boy” Ric Flair was unforgettable. If you haven’t watched it the videos are included in this video for you to watch.

I will also be discussing this hopefully soon in a Let’s Talk WWE 2K14 video. Stay tuned.
