WWE 2K18 trailer

WWE 2K18 just unveiled its upcoming Road to Glory mode, which will act as a character-driven online mode for the professional wrestling game. Seen in the video are backstage sequences, and plenty of new footage.

Check out the first WWE 2K18 Road to Glory gameplay below:

This joins the new WWE 2K18 story mode (full details at the link) as major additions to this year’s game:

In WWE 2K18, we wanted MyCAREER to focus on a strong story narrative. We felt the addition of backstage could afford us some cool new ways to experience a day in the life of a WWE Superstar. For us to accomplish this, we needed to develop unique and compelling storylines that are no longer shared from Universe Mode so the journeys that MyPLAYERs go through are unique and fresh.

This year, you’ll have two very different paths you can take en route to your own WrestleMania moment (note: you will be able to play past that WrestleMania moment; your story won’t end there).

It was also recently confirmed that The Rock would be the soundtrack’s executive producer:

2K has announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be the WWE 2K18 Executive Producer. The actor and professional wrestler will curate the game’s 11-song soundtrack, which is currently streaming on Apple Music. Highlights include Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead,” Boston’s “Smokin’,” and “Boyz-N-The-Hood” by Eazy-E.

WWE 2K18 releases on October 17 for PS4 and Xbox One (the Nintendo Switch version arrives in fall 2017). Preordering gets you early access on October 13, and there’s a Collector’s Edition celebrating John Cena’s career.
