“The Man” Becky Lynch and “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns are your WWE 2K20 Cover Superstars. Their presence isn’t the only thing different about the game, though. Find out more within…
2018 into 2019 was one of the biggest for two superstars within the World Wrestling Entertainment roster. Four Horsewoman member, Becky Lynch, was lost in the mid-card shuffle before turning on then-best friend Charlotte Flair and ascending into superstardom as “The Man”. That ascension took her to the main event of Wrestlemania, where she became the first person to pin Ronda Rousey inside the square circle.
In the other corner, Roman Reigns was going through a rigorous battle of his own. On the October 22, 2018 broadcast of Monday Night Raw, Reigns announced that his leukemia had re-surfaced. Therefore, he had to leave the WWE to receive treatment. In just 4 months, Reigns remarkably put leukemia back into remission and returned to fight at Wrestlemania.
After two monumental years, both WWE superstars have been named Cover Superstars for WWE 2K20. This is what they had to say about the news:
“My career has been about breaking barriers and doing what nobody else has done before. Being the first female Superstar on the cover of a WWE 2K video game is no exception,” said Becky Lynch.
“As a gamer myself, being on the cover of WWE 2K20 alongside ‘The Man’ Becky Lynch and joining the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena is a huge career and personal milestone for me,” said Roman Reigns.
With two incredible performers gracing the cover, WWE 2K20 needs to include some pretty incredible features, right? Well, 2K had the same idea. Here are just a few things coming to WWE 2K20, this October.
WWE 2K20, in direct response to fan feedback, will include several franchise firsts alongside streamlined gameplay and a variety of popular modes. The story-driven, objective-based 2K Showcase: The Women’s Evolution will follow the careers of the Four Horsewomen – Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley®, Charlotte Flair® and Sasha Banks®. Controls will be streamlined to allow new players to jump into the game more easily, while experienced players will still enjoy a challenge.
In addition, WWE 2K20 players will be able to compete as both male and female Superstars in MyCAREER and Mixed Tag matches, while last year’s popular WWE Towers returns with exciting new challenges, including a story-driven Tower centered around the career of Roman Reigns.
The game will also introduce a new service model – WWE 2K20 Originals – set to 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 its own unique theme, with more details to be announced in the coming months. WWE 2K20 Originals is downloadable content that may require additional purchase.
There’s loads more that will be announced in the coming weeks, but it’s already looking like WWE 2K20 could be a solid sequel to what was one of the best WWE 2K games in years, WWE 2K19.
WWE 2K20 releases on October 22, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
