WWE 2K20 finally dropped the trailer for this year’s edition and the cover has gone intergender! As previously reported, “The Man” Becky Lynch has made the cover, but for the first time in the 2K franchise, we’ll have co-cover stars, as Roman Reigns will join Lynch on this year’s cover.

Lots of news has also been revealed about the upcoming edition of the franchise, which began in 2013 with WWE 2K14 after 2K Sports took over the WWE video game from THQ.

THE STORY MODE

This year’s story mode will focus on the Women’s Evolution, in particular, the rise and climb of WWE’s Four Horsewomen – Lynch, alongside Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley. 2K Sports announced in their press release that:

“WWE 2K20, in direct response to fan feedback, will include several franchise firsts alongside streamlined gameplay and a variety of popular modes. The story-driven, objective-based 2K Showcase: The Women’s Evolution will follow the careers of the Four Horsewomen – Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, Charlotte Flair, and Sasha Banks. Controls will be streamlined to allow new players to jump into the game more easily, while experienced players will still enjoy a challenge.

In addition, WWE 2K20 players will be able to compete as both male and female Superstars in MyCAREER and Mixed Tag matches, while last year’s popular WWE Towers returns with exciting new challenges, including a story-driven Tower centered around the career of Roman Reigns.”
