With over 180 characters from the world of wrestling vying for attention in WWE 2K18, it promises to be the biggest and most action-packed edition of the popular franchise to date. Add that to the phenomenal processing power of Microsoft’s Xbox One and fans have a lot to look forward to.

For nearly 20 years, the WWE game series has thrilled enthusiasts of the sport with crisp graphics and realistic gameplay. Now, with the addition of a new graphics engine delivering beautiful lighting modes, improved skin textures and an overhauled camera system, WWE 2K18 is sure to be yet another huge success.

Announced in this generation is the MyPLAYER mode that allows gamers to select from a pre-determined range of moves that each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Never before has it been so important which fighting style is chosen.

The introduction of Road to Glory mode combines with MyPLAYER characters meaning players now have the opportunity to compete with other WWE fans around the world, battling it out to qualify for a selection of WWE pay-per-view events.
Moving to the ring is where WWE 2K18 differs the most from its predecessors. A new carrying mechanic has been brought in that will allow players to pick up and transport their opponents across the ring after initiating a grapple. They are then free to use signature moves much to the pleasure of the watching crowds.

Elsewhere, the commentary team has been completely changed in an effort to make in-match sound bites feel like the real thing. Newcomers Michael Cole, Byron Saxton and Corey Graves have been recording their lines since 2016.
There has also been an improvement in the eight-person match mode which includes the iconic ladder bouts and infamous Battle Royal. These have been overhauled completely to make them feel more fluid and controlled.
