WWE 2K23 will feature a wide variety of Match Types, with up to 8 wrestlers in the ring at the same time. On this page, you can find all the WWE 2K23 Match Types available in the game.

Also, with the Custom Matches / Match Creator feature in WWE 2K23, players can create and save their own match types with a customized set of rules.

The biggest new match type addition to WWE 2K23 is the introduction, for the first time in the series, of War Games!

WWE 2K23 WarGames New Match Type:

The fan-favorite action-packed WarGames match type makes its debut in WWE 2K23 and delivers heart-pounding 3v3 and 4v4 multiplayer mayhem inside two side-by-side rings, surrounded by a double-steel cage!

It can be played with either men or women superstars, and will feature a plethora of weapons to fight with, as well as the ability to dive off the top of the cage and springboard between rings.

If you're playing WarGames by yourself, when you have your new partners enter the match, you can freely switch control from one member of your team to the other.

WarGames matches in WWE 2K23 can be played in 3 different Arenas: NXT War Games 2021, Survivor Series 2022, and a third MyRise-specific Arena.
