WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Jerry “The King Lawler,” alongside current WWE superstar Damien Sandow and ringside announcer Justin Roberts revealed the roster for the Wrestlemania-inspired single-player story mode in the upcoming “WWE 2K14” game on Saturday, confirming more than 20 stars from various eras in the company’s rich history.
From Hulk Hogan to Yokozuna, the Wrestlemania story mode for “WWE 2K14” even features recently “retired” stars the likes of Scott Hall, Batista, Bill Goldberg, Kevin Nash and Edge.
After the game’s first trailer gained lackluster reviews on social media last month, the roster announcement for the single-player story mode has changed the mood surrounding the game’s release entirely.
“I wasn’t excited about the game when I saw the trailer, but once I saw the full roster for the Wrestlemania mode, I’ve decided want to get it,” New Jersey-based gamer Kenneth Tookes told Review Fix.
Last week, 2K announced the “theme” of “WWE 2K14” would be encompass the 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania. In addition to the roster of former legends and stars, it also allows gamers to relive over 45 Wrestlemania moments.
“You guys are going to love the game,” Ross said. “The attention to detail is absolutely amazing.”
Ross also revealed that Lawler and he will provide play-by-play and color commentary for the matches in the mode.
“It’s kind of like putting the band back together, one last time,” he said.
“WWE 2K14” is scheduled for an October 29 release on the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.
