For the cover of WWE 2K20, 2K will prove that two cover Superstars are better than one.
2K officially unveiled Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns as the cover Superstars of the upcoming edition of the WWE video game franchise. The world-renowned video game publisher confirmed its historic selection and other details about WWE 2K20, including the worldwide release date on Oct. 22, 2019.
WWE 2K20 marks the first time either The Man or The Big Dog will grace the cover of a WWE 2K video game. It also officially puts the current Raw Women’s Champion in the trailblazing position of being the first female Superstar to be selected by 2K for this prestigious honor.
“My career has been about breaking barriers and doing what nobody else has done before,” Lynch said in the press release. “Being the first female Superstar on the cover of a WWE 2K video game is no exception.”
Lynch and Reigns can now count themselves among a small but significant group of grapplers who previously served as the face of the WWE 2K franchise. 2K’s past choices for the coveted role include “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins and last year’s cover Superstar, AJ Styles.
In addition to its cover Superstar selection, 2K provided the first glimpse of what the WWE Universe can expect from WWE 2K20. The features 2K confirmed will be in the upcoming WWE video game include:
- A new 2K Showcase mode spotlighting The Women’s Evolution, which follows the accomplished careers of WWE’s Four Horsewomen: Lynch, current SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks.
- The debut of WWE 2K20 Originals, a collection of 2K Showcase downloadable content designed to let players explore new playable worlds and experience unique themes beyond what’s available at WWE 2K20’s launch.
- The ability to compete as male and female Superstars in MyCareer and Mixed Tag Team Matches.
- The return of WWE Towers mode, including an all-new Tower inspired by the storied career of Roman Reigns.
- Updated controls to make WWE 2K20 more accessible to new players.
2K also introduced multiple premium editions of WWE 2K20, which include:
- The WWE 2K20 Deluxe Edition, which contains a copy of the game with special packaging, a complete set of WWE 2K20 Originals, access to the Accelerator, MyCareer Kickstart, WWE SuperCard limited edition cards, additional digital content offerings including the WWE 2K debut of Chyna as a playable character and more.
- The WWE 2K20 Collector’s Edition, which pays homage to the 20th Anniversary of SmackDown and contains the same features as the Deluxe Edition plus exclusive and rare collectibles.
Further details about what content will be available in each edition will be announced by 2K in the near future.
