2K (with the help of Paul Heyman) have today unveiled the game modes coming to WWE 2K Battlegrounds, with an assortment of wacky and unique ways to play the game on offer (as well as some fan favourites such as Tornado Tag, Steel Cage, and, my personal favourite, Royal Rumble). You can check out the new trailer highlighting some of these below:

Game modes include:

Campaign Mode: Throw down in this single-player story mode told through a comic art style as you add to your stable of WWE Superstars to overcome the next challenge. Team up with Paul Heyman and Stone Cold Steve Austin as you travel the globe in search of new Superstars for an all-new WWE brand. Play as one of the seven newly created Superstars, such as Bolo Reynolds and Jessica Johnson, as you travel across several regions battling WWE Superstars, achieving campaign goals and unlocking various WWE Superstars, power-ups and items; 

Exhibition Mode: Brawl with your friends or family, with up to four-player action online or on the couch in your favourite match types, including: 
Tag Team
Triple Threat
Fatal Four Way
Steel Cage Match
Royal Rumble

King of The Battleground Mode: Battle to become the Last Man (or Woman) Standing as you and up to seven other online players burn it down and try to toss one another out of the ring! The longer you stay in the arena, the higher your score climbs. The second you send someone flying, another Superstar waiting outside the ring enters the fray;

Online Tournament Mode: Take the action online for rewards in a variety of time-limited tournaments featuring a wide range of win conditions. Keep an eye out… you never know when a new Battlegrounds tournament might be kicking off;

Battleground Challenge Mode: Brawl from the bottom all the way to the top! Create your own WWE Superstar and overcome all the odds stacked against you.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds certainly has plenty of different game modes for players to dive into, whilst the character creator shown off in the trailer looks like it’s going to give players the chance to make some outrageously creative WWE Superstars. The story mode looks like it’s going to be a treat too, especially since you’ll get to earn some unlockables along the way… who knows what WWE Superstars are going to show up on your journey?!

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Google Stadia on September 18th 2020. Find out more on the official website through this link.
