I find that the WWE games just don't seem to have the same longevity as they once did. It's probably because I've never really been able to get into the WWE Universe or MyCAREER modes, and I don't really know why that is.

I guess the Hardys are the most noteworthy omissions.

It'd be great if they could be pushed through as DLC, but that may be unlikely.

Has that been the case in previous years? My initial thought was that they would obviously be DLC, but I have literally nothing to base that on.

They have added new wrestlers through DLC in the past, so it's possible. I'm not sure how far in advance the DLC superstars are planned, though. With the Hardys coming on board at Wrestlemania, it's possible they missed the cut for that as well, though hopefully not. I'd gladly pay for a Season Pass if they're included.

The 4 horsewomen were shockingly not in 2K16 even after Sasha stating she had been scanned for the game. They were also not added as dlc so it could've been a contract issue with them all moving up from nxt

Yeah, it's pretty much at WWE's discretion. I remember many years ago, Big Show got pulled from No Mercy because it was around the same time he'd been sent down to OVW to get in better shape.

In 2K17, is the entire 'Downloaded Wrestler' section in select a player DLC? I don't remember, but if so, I feel like that's a ton of characters.

If it ends up being that large a pool again, I've gotta imagine they'll find their way in. Especially if the plan is to give them singles runs. Then again, the current WWE World Champion isn't in 2K17 so what do I know.

In all fairness, he only returned in July of last year and was basically a jobber until this mega push. Mind you, that is an indictment of WWE's hotshot booking right now.

Ah, so that would've been 2010 and Smackdown vs. RAW 2011. He was briefly fired in 2010 over the choking incident while a member of the Nexus, then was brought back for Summerslam. That'd be the reason for his absence.

I don't know if anyone else has tried it, but there's a spreadsheet over at Operation Sports that has every player in the game (2K17), and tons you can download both current and retro, re-rated, that really, drastically change the game for the better. Matches play out much more realistic, and make more sense. Gone are the quick 3 minute squashes, unless it's a superstar vs a scrub as God intended. It takes some time, and ratings are generally really low, but I've done 5 - 10 characters a day for the last few weeks, and it's really made the game substantially more fun. I'm hoping they do this again for 2K18, because it turned this back into a game I can't put down and am having a ton of fun with again.

Pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition as this is the only game I've really played in the last calendar year, so I figure it's worth ponying up the money.

To be fair, I'd say WWE 2K18 looks like 2K17 with better models and lighting. It's totally unfair to compare it visually to PS2-era WWE games.

Meanwhile, the ratings of the playable Superstars are revealed. Really? ROMAN REIGNS AT 95?!?!? The highest-rated character in-game? Really going that far to shove Reigns down our throats.

I hope they found out a way to incorporate Demon Balor in MyCareer and Universe Mode as a PPV attire for Finn Balor, seeing that they're separate characters here.

I, for one, can't wait to play as Colonel Sanders.

I guess the ratings are far less objective than games depicting real sports, but man, they're not even being subtle with Reigns' rating. Hopefully the Legends will be rated higher.

In any event, I know what I'm doing with the Accelerator. :lol:

I will assume that you can edit their ratings. Reigns being the highest-rated isn't right at all.

I just pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition on Steam. One of the first things I'm gonna be doing are the following:

• Beat-up Reigns.
• Beat-up Enzo Amore.
• Submit Reigns via a normal submission move from the lowest-rated Superstar.
• Have Paige join the New Day.

I can't suggest enough re-rating all your players via the Operation Sports spreadsheet. I'm sure they'll put out a new one and/or update it for 2K18, but it completely changed 2K17 for me.

I must admit I've never tried it, but sounds like it's worth a shot.

It's very time consuming, but when paired with the listed settings, it removes the 3 minute matches that were complained about way back in this thread, unless it's a main even star versus a scrub. The Overalls end up a little wonky (having dealt with custom rosters in the NBA 2K series, though, this should come far less shocking to us than many others), but the overall experience is great. I'd recommend giving it a shot on like 2 superstars, 2 mid carters, and 2 jobbers, and play some different combination matches between them. After I did that, I was sold and gradually edited a few guys a day until I had the entire current roster done (they also have it for all of the Retro stars and ones who are not in the game as well).

To be honest, I don't mind the shorter matches. I'm less sim when it comes to the WWE games compared to the NBA games, but it is intriguing all the same, so I'll probably try it out.

Anybody started your download of the game? Seems like the "4 days early" bonus doesn't apply on the PC version.

I got the disc version on PS4, and it arrived in time, so no issues here.

I went on to check their Twitter (@WWEGames) and they have tweeted about the Deluxe Edition launch. There were people who replied "...except for the PC version, which you'd still wait for the 17th."

So yeah, wait a few more days for it to be available on Steam, and a few more days to download the game. :lol:

I went with the digital PS4 version, so it's still installing for a few more hours. Played a match of Rollins vs Roode and I think I had to hit 4 or 5 finishers to get a 3 count, so there's some work with the ratings/options that'll need to happen. It felt very smooth, though. I'm interested to really dig in and see the tweaks that were made from last year. Visually it looked great. No intros or announcers during the match, but for many, I'm sure that's a plus, given the commentary blasts I read frequently. I'm excited to get playing this evening or tomorrow.

First match I played was Undertaker vs. Sting in the Wrestlemania 33 arena at night. Actually finished the match using only one finisher; hit a tombstone on Sting out on the floor, picked him up, rolled him back in, and pinned for the three count. Pretty fun.

Once I got the game loaded, everything seems fine. Definitely some new learning with some of the tweaked controls. I think the graphics are a definite upgrade from 2K17, but maybe I'm imagining it. Skin tones seem to be more realistic, lighting, etc. Some cool stuff in the CC already, too.
