'WWE 2K Battlegrounds' (ALL) Adding More Wrestlers To Its Roster in the Coming Weeks - Trailer

by Rainier on Nov. 23, 2020 @ 2:12 p.m. PST

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is a completely new WWE gaming experience that will feature arcade-style action and over-the-top Superstar designs, environments and moves.

Whether you’re a casual gamer just learning the ropes or a passionate fan ready for all the action, WWE 2K Battlegrounds provides another way to enjoy WWE video game action.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is designed to be easy to pick up and play, but challenging to master, with more advanced techniques to be learned and skills to be unlocked so players of all skill levels can enjoy the action.

Eight unique Battlegrounds environments play a major role in the action, many of them featuring interactive elements adding to the mayhem alongside a variety of outrageous melee weapons players can use to pummel opponents. Soar from military helicopters, smash opponents with cars in an auto shop and toss them into the jaws of a hungry alligator in the swamp. Bombastic play-by-play is provided by WWE commentators Mauro Ranallo and Jerry “The King” Lawler to complete the mood.

A roster of today’s biggest WWE Superstars, including Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Asuka, Daniel Bryan, Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton - combined with Legends - including Andre the Giant, Undertaker, Mankind, Shawn Michaels, Yokozuna, Sgt. Slaughter and many more, offers fan favorites for all generations of the WWE Universe to enjoy, with more unlockable Superstars to come via free updates in the future.

Each Superstar utilizes one of five class styles, and each class style has its own combat moves, strengths and weaknesses. Choose from the Powerhouse, Technician, High-Flyer, Brawler and All-Rounder to find the style that works best for you. Arcade-style powerups, such as Flaming Fist, Ice Breath and Earthquake, are accompanied by colorful visual effects, offering extra excitement and an additional dimension of strategy that can quickly change the direction of a match.

Players can also customize their own arenas to give each brawl a personal touch and use the Superstar Creator to build their own, unique WWE Superstar with different body types and sizes, facial features, clothing, hair and fighting styles.


2K announced that “Laheem” Lillard and “Gronkster” are set to arrive and raise hell in WWE 2K Battlegrounds as part of the next roster update, which starts today and also includes 9 new WWE Superstars, 17 customization items and five new arenas.

Both Lillard and Gronkster are avid fans of WWE action and have had personal brushes with WWE greatness: Lillard has partnered with adidas and WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair for a special edition Dame 7 shoe, while Gronkster has appeared twice at WWE’s flagship WrestleMania events and even captured the WWE 24/7 Championship!

NBA 2K21 cover athlete Lillard will appear in WWE 2K Battlegrounds decked out in a brand new white and gold colorway of the adidas Dame 7 “Ric Flair” shoe. Gronkster will have two alternate attires available, including the white top and red shorts he wore at WrestleMania 33 and the blue and black animal print gear he wore when he won the 24/7 Championship at WrestleMania 36. Both stars will be unlocked and immediately available for play.
