WWE 2K20 Cover Stars Announced, Deluxe & Collector’s Edition Contents Revealed

Share this:

In a press release, 2K Games announced the WWE 2K20 cover stars — yes, that’s stars with an S — and they are Roman Reigns, and Becky Lynch! As far as I know, this is the first time a WWE 2K game has two stars on the front cover instead of just one, if memory servers right.

According to the press release, Lynch and Reigns will serve as ambassadors for WWE 2K20’s marketing campaign called “Step Inside” which invites players to enter the virtual ring and experience the new features the game will offer.

WWE 2K20 will include several franchise firsts alongside refined gameplay. There’s the story-driven 2K Showcase: The Women’s Evolution that will follow the careers of the Four Horsewomen —  Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks — and will feature a streamlined control scheme to let players jump into the game more easily.

WWE 2K20 will let players compete as both male and female Superstars in MyCareer,  Mixed Tags matches. WWE Towers will also be making a return with new challenges, including a story-driven Tower centered around the career of Roman Reigns.

Visual Concepts will also feature a new service model called “WWE 2K20 Originals” which will deliver a “wealth of 2K Showcase add-on content for player exploration beyond the game’s initial launch.” Each of the WWE 2K20 Originals will present a new playable world, and it’s own unique theme. More details regarding this will be announced in the coming months. For those wondering, there’s no mention if any of this will be free, with 2K stating, “WWE 2K20 Originals is downloadable content that may require additional purchase.”

Finally, 2K has also announced the Deluxe and Collector’s Editions and their contents for WWE 2K20.
