Another year, another WWE game. However, this one looks like it could be a game-changer. We got a special early hands-on look earlier this week and this game looks like it has the potential to be the best one since WWE SmackDown: Here Comes The Pain which is considered by many fans to be one of the best WWE games ever, if not the best.
WWE 2K15 was considered a major letdown amongst fans but last year’s edition, WWE 2K16, received a much more favourable review. With WWE 2K17, 2K Games have improved on all the major aspects of 2K16 and have added a few features that fans have been waiting for. Add to that a blockbuster roster and an updated gameplay engine, and we have a game which will look to set the bar as far as modern wrestling games are concerned.
We’ll have a full review of WWE 2K17 when it comes out but for now, here are 5 things you need to know about WWE 2K17.
