If you are a WWE fan just like me and getting yourself ready for SummerSlam next Sunday then I have something to keep that excitement going for longer. Earlier on today 2K announced a brand new mode in the WWE game Franchise; 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode. This brand new single player campaign will feature iconic match ups spanning 3 decades of WWE history.
Commencing with the inaugural WrestleMania, the nostalgic journey takes players through more than 45 matches, including the legendary match between Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 3; Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson vs. “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan in an “Icon vs. Icon” match at WrestleMania 18; and the much-anticipated WrestleMania 28 main event featuring The Rock vs. John Cena. The 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode is inspired by the forthcoming WWE milestone – WrestleMania 30, scheduled for Sunday, April 6, 2014 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Chris Snyder, Senior Director of Marketing at 2K had the following to say:
For nearly three decades, WWE has inspired millions worldwide through the historic, cultural and undeniable phenomenon that is WrestleMania. Through the 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode in WWE 2K14, players can now relive their favourite nostalgic and recent WrestleMania moments – from an incredible roster to authentic presentation and match play – in a unique and engaging way.
In celebration of today’s 30 Years of WrestleMania Mode announcement, 2K also disclosed the Company and Twitch.TV will present the Roster Reveal live on TwitchTV from WWE SummerSlam Axxess on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 20:30 p.m. BST. The reveal will be hosted by WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler and WWE Superstar Damien Sandow.
