WWE 2K Battlegrounds brings fastpaced action and an assortment of power-ups, special moves, unconventional melee items, and interactive environments to take the brawl to the next level.

Boasting a roster of more than 70 WWE Superstars, Hall of Famers, and Legends, there is no end to the chaos that can unfold when players face off! On top of that, plans to include 60 additional Superstars in future free downloadable updates that will include, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior, Ric Flair, and many more. . All Superstars utilize one of five class styles – Powerhouse, Technician, High-Flyer, Brawler and All-Rounder – with each class having its own combat moves, strengths and weaknesses. Arcade-style offensive and defensive power-ups, such as Flaming Fist, Ice Breath, and Earthquake, offer an additional dimension of strategy that can quickly change the direction of a match.
“We’re excited to add WWE 2K Battlegrounds to 2K’s growing portfolio of WWE and licensed sports
properties, and to offer yet another way for gamers to enjoy WWE video game action. “This arcade-style brawler offers a completely different experience from our WWE 2K simulation franchise and WWE SuperCard collectible card battling game, that we’re confident fans will enjoy.”
David Ismailer – President at 2K
