WWE 2K

Saw a snippet about it on WNW this morning, so figured I might as well start a thread on it. Also, for those who are unaware, former NBA Live Community Manager and Producer Marcus Stephenson is now handling the community stuff for SDvRAW 2011.

JR posted a blog about the game which has since been removed, in which he mentioned some details about his involvement in the game:

"It looks like WWE has lined up a really cool, THQ video game for me to work on and that I will likely be broadcasting alongside the King in the game where Legends compete with active Superstars.

"I'm not sure of the release date or the creative details, etc but the concept, as explained to me, was really cool. I hope to begin my voice overs in the next week or two. We're burning daylight on this one and need to get rocking. I'm ready!"


Sounds good to me. (Y)

Whatever happened to the "Smackdown vs Raw Online" thing?

And it's great to be hearing JR again.

If you've seen it happen in a TLC match in WWE programming, chances are you'll be able to replicate it, or something very close to it, in SVR 2011. Let's talk tables first. In previous games, sending a body flying through a table was typically an all-or-nothing affair: you either hit the table and it collapsed, or you grazed it and nothing happened at all. In SVR 2011, where you hit the table will matter, and tables will break in different ways--one side might collapse after a leg folds in, for example, or you can break a table completely and it will shatter into pieces (with those fragments remaining as real objects in the ring for a limited time before disappearing).


That sounds good

That's looking really good, love the idea of being able to actually throw people onto ladders and other such weapons for added impact. Adjusting the move once it's started to alter where an opponent lands is a great idea, that's really going to come in handy for tables matches.

WWE All-Stars looks like an interesting concept, not sure I'll pick that up when it comes out next year but something to keep an eye on.

It would be much cooler IMO for some of the objects not to disappear. I think the last time it happened was with Here Comes the Pain.

And hell that Orton model looks exactly like him.

gameplay clips of both SmackDown and Allstars ..

Have to say, Allstars looks fecking ridiculous, even more than in the screenshots.
It's definitely aimed at younger people, which is a good thing regarding the Smackdown series, in my eyes. This way it's less likely they take things like blood out of the SvR games.

Considering the people that McMahon has brought back after a less than amicable parting of the ways, whatever led to his falling out with Savage must've been pretty bad. Bret Hart does possibly shed some light on the matter in his book as he mentions that when Savage unexpectedly signed with WCW in the mid 90s, he called up Vince at 4 AM and drunk to tell him. Perhaps something else was said during that conversation or Vince simply didn't appreciate the way the situation was handled.

Or maybe Savage just wants too much money to appear in the game.

this is my guess. vince would put him in the game if he hated him and wanted to see him dead. he wuld bring money to the game and vince is no fool. its not like vince would ever even have to talk to him to get him into the game so it is probably a money issue. he brought the warrior back after all

That's true. Savage I believe owns his character, moniker and all related trademarks. Jim Hellwig changed his name to Warrior but WWE owns the trademark on Ultimate Warrior.

Yeah, sometimes I think they try and change things up too much when it comes to the modes. There's keeping things fresh and then there's leaving out things that people really want to see in the game.

He's apparently done some work for 2011, so it'll be good to hear him in the game in whatever capacity that happens to be.

Meanwhile, this news post on WNW mentions the release date for the game as being October 26th.

They haven't mentioned any of them specifically but seeing as they're not doing another Legends of Wrestlemania next year, there'll probably be a few legends in the game.

Great read, but still no PC release. :(

I wonder how the RPG elements go in.

Need an overview of what you're about to get into? Free-roaming backstage environments are back, you no longer have to earn your Create-A-Superstars attributes, Hell in a Cell has been revamped and includes weapons under the ring, and pretty much anything you're doing outside of the Road to WrestleMania storylines or online matches is taking place in "WWE Universe," a mode that wraps storylines, feuds and a programming schedule into one package that's always evolving and changing.


So far, so good. :)

It'll pack a more current roster of Superstars than SVR 2010 (of the 70-plus wrestlers, the Undertaker, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, The Miz, John Cena, Sheamus, Rey Mysterio, Jack Swagger, Triple H, Big Show, Evan Bourne, Christian, Edge, Bret Hart, Michelle McCool, and Eve are confirmed), gameplay improvements, and a whole bunch more.


Nice. (Y)

WWE Universe is the career mode of WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011. If you don't like it and you just want the traditional exhibition matches without the suggestions and presentation, you can turn the mode off by clicking the thumbstick at the main menu.


That's a good idea. As interesting as the concept sounds, I think when you're getting used to the game it wouldn't be a bad idea to switch it off so you're not changing anything before you want to. I do kind of like the traditional approach of a contained mode with exhibition play though but like I said the concept sounds interesting and hopefully it works out. Good to hear that we can customise it as well as let the game take care of things as well. And of course, we'll have Road to Wrestlemania for a set storyline with forks and "side-quests".

Also cool: the door has been removed from the cell. The only way to get out now is to perform opponent-hurling moves into the wall closest to the announce table and barrel through the steel. Look for new moves from the top of the cell as well such as the Last Ride, superkicks and so on.


I'm actually a bit disappointed by that news. Everything else about HIAC sounds good but I think you should either be able to throw an opponent through the wall OR go out the door.

The strong grapple modifier is gone, too. If you want to pull off a big move from a grapple, you can't just hold down a shoulder button and flick the thumbstick anymore – you have to earn it by performing chain grapples via flicking the stick and pulling off preliminary moves. As you wear your opponent down, he or she is going to get groggy, and this is when you can flick the stick and grapple for big moves. Strike combos also return this year, and if you land a four-hit combo, expect the opponent to pop into that groggy state.


Probably more realistic that way but I'm kind of on the fence about that. It'll take some getting used to but hopefully it'll prove to be for the best.

Still, the biggest change on the move front? Opponents don't have to be dazed for you to pull off a finisher. If you have your special move ready to go, you can just walk over, hit the button and go to town. Of course, the opponent can (and will) still reverse your move, but the days of chasing your friend around the ring in order to daze him in order to chokeslam him are gone.


I do like that on the other hand, no more gut-kick then triggering the finisher which also features a gut-kick to set up the opponent. Hope it isn't too easy to reverse finishers, especially after you've beaten the hell out of someone.

On the whole, sounds pretty good. Even the stuff I'm kind of tentative about or disappointed by doesn't sound horrible. Should be a solid game at the very least.

Also worth noting that there'll be multiple covers this year. Shame Australia doesn't get the Taker cover.

Come to think of it I guess I could order the game from the UK if I wanted the Taker cover, but that's probably not cost effective. Ah well, it's only the cover.

The achievement/trophy list has partially been leaked on those SummerSlam Access thingy, one RTWM story this year is named "Vs. Undertaker" - Most likely one that you could play with a CAW as well. That should make up for him not being on the US/Aussie cover. ;)

Sounds like something that involves beating the Undertaker though. That's not what I want. ;)

That US cover sucks big time. A cover without Triple H on it seems kinda weird.

Kinda hyped for this, although I am still stuck with the PS2 version :lol:
