Fans of WWE can enjoy the "highly influential "Attitude Era," with WWE '13 which is in development right now for Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo Wii. We're promised "critical core gameplay improvements".
There's a new WWE Live "audio and presentation system" to give fans their most "authentic, extensive and fervent" experience yet in the series. It's all about the commentary and the crowds.
We'll also be treated to "attention-grabbing Spectacular Moments, including ring breaks and barricade crashes." A campaign also debuts dedicated to the 'Attitude Era'.
"WWE ’13 is certain to ignite our enthusiastic, worldwide fan base and encourage them to live a revolution that simply cannot be ignored,” said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President, Global Brand Management, THQ. “WWE Live will bring the impassioned WWE live event experience into the living rooms of consumers, while critical core gameplay improvements and a serious dose of attitude will enable them to experience WWE action like never before.”
We'll still have that Creation Suite to handle all our customisation needs for new wrestlers, entrances, arenas, finishing moves, story lines and more. Below is the official blurb for WWE '13:
WWE ’13 will transform gameplay through WWE Live, a brand-new audio and presentation system designed to produce the most authentic and vibrant commentary, sound effects and crowd participation levels ever heard in a WWE videogame. In addition, players will experience the atmosphere, spectacle and fervor of a WWE live event through attention-grabbing Spectacular Moments, including ring breaks and barricade crashes.
WWE ’13 will also debut a franchise-first single player campaign based on an unparalleled and groundbreaking period in WWE history: the “Attitude Era.” Set during a time of pure raucousness, grandiose personalities and colossal revolution, players will focus on eight purveyors of attitude during the famed television “Monday Night Wars,” including WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Predator Technology™ 2.0, driven by new animations, transitions and modified controls, will return to deliver intelligent, fluid and engaging WWE action, resulting in a smoother gameplay experience than its predecessors. As well, the popular career-style mode, WWE Universe, will dynamically introduce matches, alliances, rivalries and unpredictable moments based on player decisions along the path toward becoming a WWE champion.
WWE ’13 will feature the franchise’s industry-defining Creation Suite, enabling players to develop and customize Superstars, entrances, arenas, finishing moves, storylines, highlight reels and more, as well as share and download creations with others from around the world. Furthermore, they will compete with a vast array of WWE Superstars and “Attitude Era” luminaries from the largest roster in franchise history, including cover Superstar CM Punk, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Sheamus, Undertaker®, Mankind™, Chris Jericho®, Big Show® and Mark Henry®. Along with to-be-announced features, a comprehensive roster reveal, downloadable content and big surprises, WWE ’13 is poised to live a revolution all its own.
WWE '13 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii October 30th.
