WWE 2K24 Gameplay Upgrades

Here's a list of the gameplay additions announced so far for WWE 2K24:

  • Trading Blows: A new mini-game that locks you in a duel of attacks. It has 4 strikes: punch, knife edge chop, overhand chop, and slap. You can choose which one to perform with the Left Stick
  • Super Finishers: If you stock 3 finishers during the match, you'll be able to use all of your stock to perform a Super Finisher, which will nullify the opponent's resiliency and make it almost impossible to kick out
  • The improved blood system makes it drip and stay on the mat
  • You can finally climb, walk, perform moves and finishers, and jump off the announce table like in the old games
  • 7 real WWE referees are now featured in the game
  • The classic HCTP ramp-facing camera is returning. You can also change the camera during the match
  • Spectator mode: you can watch IA vs IA matches by choosing the view you want including a complete free cam
  • Face paint gradually fades during the match
  • You can top rope dive onto a group of opponents outside the ring

  • You can throw weapons at your opponents. Throwable objects can also be caught and reversed.
  • The ability to pull down the straps during a match is back for certain Superstars (such as Kurt Angle or Undertaker)
  • Tired finishers and animations are back
  • Rebound moves after Irish Whips have been fixed and no longer result in constant chest-bumping. You can now queue the Rebound Attack by pressing the grapple button early. If you're late, it triggers an automatic pass-by (same as LB) so you can try again.
  • 6 new Paybacks
    • Iron Jaw: Remove your stunned meter and exit the stunned state
    • Fireball: Launch a fireball to your opponent
    • Freeze: Freeze your opponent by using intimidating tactics

Incredibly realistic graphics and improved animations - with over 90% of facial expressions updated - plus improvements to Ramp cameras and Dive cameras, and the ability to move the camera during live gameplay provide the most visually impressive WWE 2K experience to date.

New weapon types, including trash cans, guitars, and microphones, plus the ability to throw weapons, allow players to bring the pain. Also, seven real WWE referees are featured to add to the immersive experience.

WWE 2K24 MyGM Mode

The popular WWE brand management simulation continues to expand with new features, including:

The team-building mode in which players collect, manage, and upgrade an array of WWE Superstars and Legends to create their ultimate four-person factions returns with a new direct purchase card market and updated multiplayer experience.

Players can now compete in ranked online QuickPlay with unique rewards and seasonal leaderboards, challenge themselves with Weekly Towers, and take on a revamped Faction Wars 2.0, featuring more real-world factions, more 4v4 match types, a Faction Wars specific reward shop, and more. New themed card packs and goals will continue to roll out regularly throughout the year with seasonal content refreshes.


The WWE 2K24 unique career mode experience features two new storylines - Undisputed (men’s) and Unleashed (women’s) - that put players in control of custom-created Superstars looking to make a name for themselves and cement their legacies in WWE history.

  • In Unleashed (women’s), players step into the boots of a wrestler who founded the hottest promotion on the indie scene. But when allowed to share her talents on the larger stage of WWE, will she "Unleash" her full potential, or hesitate and hold back?
  • In Undisputed (men's), Roman Reigns follows in the footsteps of The Rock and heads to Hollywood, vacating his championship and leaving big boots to fill for our protagonist. But the "Tribal Chief" won’t stay gone for long and doesn’t appreciate a pretender to his throne.

Both experiences offer players multiple choices to make that will impact how their careers unfold, including whether to embody the archetype of a Hollywood star, supernatural character, or villainous, brutal heel, and whether to align with authority figures William Regal and The Miz.

In addition to original arenas and championship belts, for the first time, players will be able to unlock MyRISE-specific MyFACTION cards from both Undisputed and Unleashed experiences. In Undisputed, this includes cards for fan-favorite characters such as Cole Quinn, Chosen, Slade, Tavish, and Xavier Woods’ alter ego, Zero.

Featuring Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, Mick Foley, and others performing MyRISE voiceover for the first time, alongside other Superstars and Legends, expanded rewards, original MyRISE characters, and unlockables carrying over into other game modes, plus new environments, MyRISE is more impactful on the overall WWE 2K experience than ever before.

WWE 2K24 Universe Mode

The ultimate WWE Universe sandbox that puts players in charge of Superstar rosters, feuds, champions, weekly shows, and Premium Live Events now features:

  • Expanded Rivalry actions, including run-ins, Money in the Bank cash-ins, scenarios, and brawls
  • New cutscenes
  • Special Guest Referee support
  • Double Title Matches
  • Loser Leaves Town stipulation

WWE 2K24 Creation Suite

The crown jewel of the WWE 2K franchise, the best-in-class, most detailed, and robust creation suite returns with all-new support for Create-A-Referee and Create-A-Sign, as well as new parts and animations to design custom Superstars, GMs, arenas, entrances, move sets, championships and more.

The Creation Suite in WWE 2K24 now also features a "Quick Save" button, allowing you to quickly save your progress while in the middle of creating or editing a character.
