The WWE video game franchise hit an all-time low with WWE 2K20. A game riddled with so many issues that it made Fallout 76 look like a finished game. However, this is the internet and people have already moved on to the latest new title. Confirmed today the new game featuring the WWE license is being created by Saber Interactive, known for World War Z, called WWE 2K Battlegrounds.

Unlike the core series, this one is cartoonish over the top action brawler more akin to Capcom's wrestling titles. The title will include 70 WWE Superstars and post-launch content will come after. The following modes have been confirmed:

Exhibition: Take part in Exhibition matches at home or on-the-go, anytime and anywhere, in local and online multiplayer action for up to four players;

Campaign: Join the adventures of seven new WWE hopefuls - created exclusively for WWE 2K Battlegrounds - in Campaign mode and compete for the chance to earn a WWE contract. Along the way, you’ll unlock new arenas, inspired by locations such as the Everglades, a military-style Bootcamp, Mexico, New York and Scotland, while receiving guidance from legendary personalities including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin® and Paul Heyman™;

King of the Battleground: Take on all comers in the King of the Battleground, an online, last-man-standing mode where four players start in the ring while four more wait outside to enter, challenging you to run the gauntlet and defeat them all;

Online: Test your toughness in online tournaments and Exhibition matches.

I'm not worried seeing that Saber Interactive is behind this title. The studio has a long and acclaimed history of working on ports and original IPs ranging from shooters to sports titles.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds launches on September 18th for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia, and Nintendo Switch. Those who pre-order will get Edge at launch. The Digital Deluxe Edition will unlock Steve Austin, The Rock, Ronda Rousey at the start, and 1100 Golden Bucks.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is available now for pre-order in Standard Edition (MSRP $39.99) and Digital Deluxe Edition (MSRP $49.99). Players who pre-order the Standard Edition will receive WWE Hall of Famer Edge®* at launch. The Digital Deluxe edition includes Edge, as well as all versions of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock and Ronda Rousey® unlocked at the beginning of play, plus 1100 bonus Golden Bucks, in-game currency that can be used to unlock Superstars, as well as cosmetic items**.
