In line with the release of WWE 2K17, 2K have released “The Basics”, the first in a series of trailers focusing on the controls of the game. The Basics guides new and seasoned players through the basic controls of the game as well as highlighting several new additions to the primary gameplay mechanics. Before you say it though, yes the controller demo in the top left is a PS4 controller but we can’t be fussy and you get the idea.
Expect to see further Control-Focused trailers appearing over the coming weeks, guiding players through the more in depth moves and mechanics of the game.
WWE 2K17 is available now to buy and for further information about the game check out the Official Website.

However it wont be easy, and the stakes are high. You’ll need to take on opponents in a series of gladiatorial games to win your freedom, save your friends, and maybe, just maybe, make it back to your own world!

The first of the numbered Call of Duty games to release on console, Call of Duty 2, is now available on Xbox One backwards compatibility.
Call of Duty 2 was one of the launch titles for the Xbox 360 back in late 2005. The single player campaign provided a compelling story through the battlefields of World War II from the perspective of four different soldiers: two from the British forces, one from the American and one from the Russian. Not to mention its terrific multiplayer.
Now you can relive that Xbox 360 nostalgia, although without the threat of the Red Ring of Death.
