2K Games have taken to their blog this morning to surprise fans with a new game announcement from the WWE 2K franchise.
A new arcade-style WWE game is coming and it is set to release this Fall! Titled WWE Battlegrounds, players both fans of the WWE franchise and newcomers alike, will be able to pick up the new game and have fun with it as it serves more as a beat em’ up title than simulator fighting game.
Being developed by Saber Interactive, known for NBA Playgrounds, players will be able to jump into some of their favorite characters and perform some crazy moves. The game seems very familair to NBA Playgrounds due to its art style, gameplay mechanics, and over the top action. 2K Games have not announced an official release date for the game nor the consoles it will be available on, but they did release a new teaser trailer for the game!
