2K has released the first gameplay trailer for WWE 2K24 featuring our best look yet at what's to come in an instalment of the long-running series which definitely doesn't look like simple filler.
A lot of big updates are heading our way this March and the visuals have received a polish which arguably help make this the most realistic-looking WWE game to date.
WWE 2K24 features several franchise advancements, including 2K Showcase...of the Immortals celebrating 40 years of WrestleMania, four new match types such as Ambulance and Special Guest Referee, two new MyRISE experiences, and much more.
Those new matches are highlighted in this trailer and look to be a lot of fun for fans who have spent years waiting to play them again.
"Fresh off the highest-rated game in franchise history, the WWE 2K development team continues to build on that quality," said Greg Thomas, President at Visual Concepts, last month. "WWE 2K24 offers more match types, new MyRISE storylines and characters, improvements to gameplay throughout, a 2K Showcase 40 years in the making, and so much more."
"I’m very proud of the work the team has done to bring this experience to life, and I look forward to seeing players enjoy the game."
