This game features an updated roster with even more World Wrestling Entertainment superstars, including Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Stacy Keibler, DDP, Ric Flair, the nWo, and many more. The in-depth story mode has multiple character paths, and for the first time, players will have the option to enter superstars into a World Wrestling Entertainment draft pool.
There are a variety of backstage areas modeled after Madison Square Garden, and more than 14 PPV arenas, including Backlash, Vengeance, and Unforgiven. The thousands of animations include superstar signature moves with double- and triple-team moves. The improved create-a-wrestler mode lets players build the ultimate wrestler with a dynamic layer system and a new thumbnail system, allowing even more CAW options. An expanded partner system allows players to take control of their tag-team counterparts.
