The game is easy to pick up and play for everyone, but challenging to master, with advanced techniques to be learned and skills to be unlocked, so players of all skill levels can enjoy the action.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is developed by Saber Interactive, the studio behind NBA 2K Playgrounds, and features a Roster of more than 70 WWE Superstars and Legends at launch, as well Custom Superstars.

Brawl with friends and family, pull off over-the-top moves and use your special abilities to destroy your opponent, while battling in interactive environments featuring explosions, electrified cages and more!

The game's theme song is "The Glory" by The Score.
