2K Sports Announce Improvements And Roster For WWE 2K14

sheamus2k Sports have announced the entire roster for the upcoming WWE 2K14 game.

The list tops off WWE 2K14’s previously revealed roster for 30 Years of WrestleMania — a mode that allows players to relive famous matches from yesteryear. 2K Sports recently revealed all five eras in the mode, which span from “Hulkamania Runs Wild” to the “Universe Era.”

The roster reveal has thrown up some surprises with the omission of Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel, Rob Van Dam , Fandango, The Uso Brothers, The Wyatt Family and Big E Langston. All are likely to feature as Downloadable Content (DLC) in the near future. Antonio Cesaro and Ryback take their bow on the full roster having served as DLC in WWE 13.

The Shield make their much anticipated debut in a WWE game that offers The Ultimate Warrior as a pre order bonus. Macho Man Randy Savage also debuts in this new title which 2K have taken over from THQ.

The following are just some of the improvements 2k have added to their first crack at the WWE gaming franchise.

  • NEW NAVIGATION SYSTEM
    • The entire navigation system has been overhauled and reanimated including all walking, running, and dragging motions to give the game a more fluid and life-like feel and look.
    • Overall Superstar movement has been accelerated, meaning the action is faster-paced and more like what you see on WWE television.
    • There is now a “starting up” animation for when Superstars begin running. This leads to a more natural-looking match, where it is more difficult to “spam” running attacks.
    • Animation gestures have been added such as adjusting wrist bands, motioning for your opponent to get up, and many more to give a human-like appearance to the navigation system.
  • STRIKING CHANGES
    • Strikes and strike combos are now quicker and snappier, making them faster and harder to reverse.
    • Successfully landing a strike combo now puts your opponent in a groggy state, making groggy grapples appear earlier and more frequently.
  • REVERSAL SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS
    • Reversing a grapple move now causes the reverser to do a move of his/her own automatically.
    • This cuts down on the endless back-and-forth “reversal fest” some users complained of in WWE ’13 while also making the match move faster.
  • CATAPULT FINISHERS
    • Catching Finishers can now be executed offensively, by Irish Whipping your opponent to the ropes with a finisher stored or catapulting your opponent up when they run towards you.
    • Select finisher moves give you the ability to launch an opponent into the air and then hit them with a Catch Finisher on the way back down.
  • NEW OMG MOMENTS
    • New multi-man OMG Moments added to help you gain the upper-hand in multi-man matches. One OMG move can take out two opponents in one shot making it easier to get the win against multiple opponents.
      • Double Attitude Adjustment
      • Double Shellshock
      • Double Chokeslam
    • New OMG Moments added to allow you to dole out even more damage using the ring environment.
      • Boot-to-head on outside ringpost
      • DDT on the apron
  • TWO-COUNTS
    • One of the most reviled bugs in WWE ’13 was the dearth of two-counts. This issue has been addressed, bringing back the dramatic near falls you know and love.

WWE 2K14 will be released on October 29th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
