WWE 2K23 Universe Mode overview

WWE 2K23 Universe Mode New Features

  • Revamped Rivalry System - This year 2K made some under-the-hood changes to Universe mode. The biggest change is the revamped Rivalry system that now allows players to choose their own actions before, during, or after a match. This feature is limited to ONLY Rivalry actions

  • 100+ rivalry actions available - With the reworked rivalry system come many great animations to choose from. 2K has given players access to over 100 different rivalry cutscenes to give your story some personalization.

  • PPVs are now PLEs - To match the current format of WWE production, PPVs have been renamed to PLEs, matching their real-life counterpart.

  • WarGames makes the cut! - Wargames is integrated into Universe mode and will be fully functional. 3 Wargames Arenas are available in the game: Survivor Series '22, NXT Takeover Wargames, and a MyRise-specific arena. You can check out the full arena list here.
