The game version of WWE is back to wreak havoc on your soul! That's right, you can once again play as favorite (or most hated) wrestling character and fight with your friends until one of them virtually dies -- or is pinned down successfully. Likewise, WWE 2K16 has a lot of new things to offer to fans of the game franchise, and so here are several useful tips if you want to have the best gaming, wrestling entertainment in the world.
Yup, you heard me right. You can be NXT Supremo William Regal and have your own NXT events, aside from of course handling RAW and SmackDown. Moreover, you can even assign WWE superstars to multiple shows!
Last year had some problems regarding the online feature, but this year promises to allow you to practice inside the squared circle even while the game is still loading. You can also now have private matches and battle through tag teams.
You can buy the Accelerator DLC to unlock all of the content, except for the downloadable ones. It's priced at $1.99. The MyPlayer Kickstart costs $9.99 and allows you to increase the created Superstar ratings at the MyCareer mode. The Legend Pack is priced at $8.99 and unleashes WWE Legends such as Dusty Rhodes, Lita, and Big Boss Man.
Instead of the usual flat bar, a circle will now appear during the pinning process. WWE 2K16 will also debut rope breaks and dirty pin moves.
Finally! Players will now be able to use the working hold needed to get back one's stamina while reducing the opponent's. This is perfect as your prepare for the final attack moves, perhaps through the famous sleeper move.
WWE 2K16 promises to actually bring in new positions and attributes to the game franchise, though that is not clearly identified for now. Even more challenging, opponents will readily adapt to the environment they are in.
Managers can now interfere during matches by taking the attention of the referee to help one's wrestler. There is also now a manager mode for players to utilize. You can even put weapons inside the ring!
While some of the 200 finishing moves have simply been revamped versions of the existing ones, some are actually new, such as Kevin Owens' package piledriver.
There are now backstage interviews and the option to create the dream team in tag matches, adding more realism to the game.
Seriously, you can now attack your opponent even as they are just about to enter the ring. Just press X or A when the attack button appears.
