With WWE 2K16 just a month away, it’s finally time for us to find out what the “campaign” looks like. Sure, create superstars and legendary matchups is great, but sometimes you just want to be the scrappy rookie trying to make a name for himself.
MyCareer mode starts you off in NXT (the WWE minor leagues), as you work towards becoming a champion. Once you’ve accomplished that goal, you can stick around and rule the ring or graduate to the main rosters.

The ultimate goal is to enter the Hall of Fame, but along the way, you’ll have milestones to accomplish. How you get to the Hall is up to you, and it doesn’t require championship runs. Being an entertaining mid-card star is a valid path to fame. All of that seems nice, but it’s how you shape your superstar’s personality and rivalries that caught my attention.
Being able to set up distractions (either the ref or superstars), drive rivalries by cutting promos, and ultimately mold yourself into the ideal face or worst heel sounds like what WWE fans have been looking for. You can check out the new trailer above and read our recent hands-on preview of this year’s Stone Cold Steve Austin showcase mode for more information.
WWE 2K16 will be out for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 on October 27.
