WWE 2K22 sees a resurgence of General Manager mode and new faction mode

2K has revealed many features that will be part of WWE 2K22. This includes the long-awaited resurgence of general manager mode and a whole new mode that brings together the factions of superstars of all ages in WWE.

General manager mode hasn’t been seen in WWE games since WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008, but it’s back in WWE 2K22 with a new look for MyGM. In this mode you can try drafting superstars, booking matches, managing contacts, and generally running WWE. Creative director Lynell Jinks said on MyGM’s journey, “We’re slowly moving from a high school gym to golden-time television.”

MyFACTION is the first new mode of WWE games, while MyGM is a resurgence of fans’ favorite mode. Your goal in this mode is to build a faction comparable to nWO, The Hart Foundation, DX, New Day and more. This is done by collecting, managing and upgrading superstar wrestlers from all ages of WWE. Teams of stars can fight in new game modes and challenges, supported by weekly events and challenges.

2K notes that MyFACTION uses cryptocurrencies, but emphasizes that it is not required. “Here it is very important to note that cryptocurrencies do not offer any kind of competitive advantage or put players in a position to win,” said art producer Christina Diễm Phạm. .. “Items purchased on VC can also be purchased with MyFACTION points earned in gameplay.”

These two modes are offered alongside a WWE Superstar journey from rookie to legendary and MyRISE mode where you can experience the returning universe mode. Creation suits with “wild options and fantasy elements” and the ability to step into the ring anywhere in the world are back. In addition, the new WWE 2K Showcase lets you relive the most iconic matches of legendary WWE Superstars.

All of this is built on a redesigned engine with gameplay and animation rebuilt from scratch. The 2K state has also implemented a new control scheme that enables a more intuitive and controlled experience. “These updates make it easier for people to pick up and play while allowing for higher skill expression,” says Diễm Phạm. “For inexperienced players, our combo system allows you to easily stitch together deadly movements. Faster response times and shorter lockouts make gameplay faster and players It means learning faster. “

WWE 2K22 is scheduled to be released in March 2022 and will be released after the series has been put on hold in 2020 to enable expansion of the next game. Mercy and SmackDown are not quoted as an influence of this latest entry in the series.
