With only 10 days left before WWE 2K14 releases, the amount of content 2K Sports has made available is impressive. Every day a new set of entrance and finishers are released. On Saturday, Cody Rhodes, Yokozuna and David Otunga were on full display.
To add to the roll of prerelease visual content, 2K Sports will be streaming full matches from its 30 Years of WrestleMania mode Monday on 2K.com.
Recreating these instances is key to the game bringing an authentic WWE experience to the gamer, but new moves are a bigger part of the potential overall success.
On Wednesday, the WWE gaming community was treated to a live stream on Twitch that showcased new Oh My God (OMG) moments, finishers and additions to core move sets. The stream was over 50 minutes long, but the video below focuses on the meat of the stream with each new move showcased. Take a look.
If you’d like to watch the entire live stream, you can see it here on YouTube.
There are quite a few cool things in the video. Perhaps the thing that sticks out the most are Goldberg’s awesome maneuvers. The rolling ankle lock and the hoisting spine buster look great. Of all the Superstars included in the game, it seems as though Goldberg may have the most exciting moveset.
The Seth Rollins signature and finishing moves are also quite impressive. Fans who have only seen Rollins as a member of The Shield have no idea just how spectacular he can be. He has been great in the WWE, but he’s only shown a smidgeon of what he’s capable of as an in-ring performer.
Because Bryan Williams, one of the senior game designers for WWE Games, is a big-time independent wrestling fan, Rollins and other Superstars who cut their teeth in the indy scene have a well-rounded arsenal of moves.
When you add in these new attacks with the announcement of the 30 Years of WrestleMania single-player campaign, the enhancements to Universe mode, the Undetaker-inspired Streak and an excellent creation suite, WWE 2K14 is looking better every day.
