WWE 2K22 Ringside Report #1: Full Match Gameplay with Developer Commentary

2K today unveiled WWE 2K22 Ringside Report #1, the first in an ongoing video series offering deep dives into the game’s features, mechanics, and more.

The Ringside Report #1 video showcases WWE 2K22 gameplay and provides a closer look at some of the new advancements that make this iteration of the franchise Hit Different.

Creative Director Lynell Jinks, Art Producer Christina Diem Pham, Principal Designer Jason Vandiver, Senior Producer Jonathan Rivera, and Senior Designer Derek Donahue provide commentary as a full WWE 2K22 match plays out, pitting cover Superstar Rey Mysterio against emerging phenom Damian Priest in more than nine minutes of gameplay.

Throughout the match, the Visual Concepts team highlights:

  • New dynamic animations, only possible through the redesigned gameplay engine, are on display from both Superstars in the ring. The Superstars feel more responsive and easier to control, and each move connects smoother and more precisely. 
  • An overhauled lighting engine that showcases the extreme details of the Superstars, making them look hyper-realistic.
  • Tweaked object physics allows for unexpected moments throughout the match. Kendo sticks fray with each hit, and tables and corner barricades break dynamically to create a more authentic match experience.
  • New reversal commands, which include blocking, dodging, and breakers. 

WWE 2K22 will be available on March 11, 2022. For all the information on WWE 2K22 check out the WWE 2K22 Main Section, and for an updated list of all the confirmed Superstars for the game, you can visit the WWE 2K22 Roster Page.
