The Digital Deluxe edition includes Edge, as well as all versions of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock, and Ronda Rousey unlocked at launch, plus 1100 bonus Golden Bucks, an in-game currency that can be used to unlock Superstars, as well as cosmetic items.

Note: WWE Superstars, in-game currency, and cosmetic items can also be unlocked by achieving in-game objectives. No additional purchase necessary.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds Game Modes

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is designed to be easy to pick up and play for everyone, but challenging to master, with more advanced techniques to be learned and skills to be unlocked, so players of all skill levels can enjoy the action.

The game features the following Game Modes to play through:

  • Exhibition: Take part in Exhibition matches at home or on-the-go, anytime and anywhere, in local and online multiplayer action for up to four players;

  • Campaign: Join the adventures of seven new WWE hopefuls - created exclusively for WWE 2K Battlegrounds - in Campaign mode and compete for the chance to earn a WWE contract. Along the way, you’ll unlock new arenas, inspired by locations such as the Everglades, a military-style Bootcamp, Mexico, New York, and Scotland, while receiving guidance from legendary personalities including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Paul Heyman;

  • King of the Battleground: Take on all comers in the King of the Battleground, an online, last-man-standing mode where four players start in the ring while four more wait outside to enter, challenging you to run the gauntlet and defeat them all;

  • Online: Test your toughness in online tournaments and Exhibition matches.


WWE 2K Battlegrounds Roster & Superstar Class Styles

WWE 2K Battlegrounds will feature a Roster of more than 70 WWE Superstars and Legends at launch, offering fan favorites of all generations, with more unlockable Superstars to come via free updates in the future.

Some of today’s biggest WWE Superstars include Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Asuka, Daniel Bryan, Kofi Kingston, and Randy Orton. The Legends Roster include Shawn Michaels, Undertaker, Mankind, Andre the Giant, Yokozuna, Sgt. Slaughter and many more.

Each Superstar utilizes one of five class styles, and each class style has its own combat moves, strengths, and weaknesses. Choose from the Powerhouse, Technician, High-Flyer, Brawler, and All-Rounder to find the style that works best for you.

Arcade-style powerups, such as Flaming Fist, Ice Breath, and Earthquake, are accompanied by colorful visual effects, offering extra excitement and an additional dimension of strategy that can quickly change the direction of a match.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds Other Features

  • Eight unique Battlegrounds Arenas / Environments play a major role in the action, many of them featuring interactive elements adding to the mayhem alongside a variety of outrageous melee weapons players can use to pummel opponents. Soar from military helicopters, smash opponents with cars in an auto shop and toss them into the jaws of a hungry alligator in the swamp.

  • A bombastic play-by-play commentary is provided by WWE commentators Mauro Ranallo and Jerry “The King” Lawler to complete the mood.

  • Players can also customize their own arenas to give each brawl a personal touch and use the Superstar Creator to build their own unique WWE Superstar with different body types and sizes, facial features, clothing, hair, and fighting styles.
