Return to an unparalleled and groundbreaking era in WWE history - a time of pure raucousness, grandiose personalities and colossal revolution – through a franchise-first single player campaign focused on eight purveyors of attitude during the famed television "Monday Night Wars," including WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
Attitude Era mode replaces the Road to WrestleMania mode this year. It allows you to play as eight of the top WWE superstars during the Attitude Era period: Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Bret Hart, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Kane, The Rock, Mick Foley and The Undertaker.
The chapters are as follow:
- The Rise of D-X
- Austin 3:16
- Brothers of Destruction
- The Great One
- WrestleMania XV
The additional "Off Script" chapter will allow gamers to also play through other major moments of the Attitude Era, such as Chris Jericho’s Monday Night Raw debut and the first episode of SmackDown.
Told from the perspective of the WWE during that period, matches and in-game cutscenes are supplemented by superb video packages assembled by WWE’s own editors. These short vignettes put matches, feuds and larger industry developments into perspective, not only keeping the overall story going, but giving a bit of a history lesson in the process. Those of us who never saw the Attitude Era play out week-to-week will finally have that chance - through stellar video packages, 65 playable matches and even a ratings chart that follows the so-called ‘Monday Night Wars’ of WWE and its rival, WCW.
Between videos, photos, belts, superstars and alternate attires, there are more than 100 items that can be opened by seeking out bonus objectives - some of which are hidden to prevent you from knowing how a match will play out. Critically, your list of objectives can be displayed at any time with the quick press of a button, just in case you’re curious if you’re accomplishing everything that’s necessary before you make the pin.Legendary commentator Jim Ross will be heard alongside Jerry “The King” Lawler, just as he was in the late ‘90s.
