The lights are on
Today WWE wrestler John Cena tweeted the first in-game screenshot of WWE 2K15. The screenshot (which you can click to expand) features an impressively rendered, scanned-in Cena shooting a debilitating scowl at WWE wrestler Randy Orton (Orton’s tattooed arm also pictured).
WWE 2K 15 is the first new-gen installment of the wrestling video game franchise published by 2K Sports. 2K 15 is being developed collaboratively by Yukes and the 2K studio Visual Concepts. For the first time, the scanning technology 2K previously applied in its NBA 2K games will be utilized to render the in-game models of famous wrestlers in greater detail and accuracy than ever before.
In addition to the incorporation of scanning technology, Visual Concepts and Yukes are introducing a number of other new features, which you can read about in our preview here. Cena will also grace the cover of the wrestling game, which you can see along with a short video with the wrestler explaining his cover shoot, here.
2K Sports took the WWE license from the now-defunct developer studio THQ last year. This is the first of the wrestling game’s titles they are handling from the beginning of development. WWE 2K 15 is set to release on October 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
