WWE 2K Battlegrounds ESRB Rating Reveals Planned Google Stadia Debut For WWE & New Features
Earlier this week, 2K Games revealed WWE 2K Battlegrounds, an arcade-style game developed by Saber Interactive due for a Fall 2020 release.
The initial teaser trailer reveals very little about the game outside of power-up style combat. Several combatants including The Rock, John Cena, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch. The trailer also shows environmental-based combat, such as The Rock feeding John Cena to an alligator.
Now, The ESRB rating for the upcoming video game reveals several new details including the inclusion of a create-a-wrestler mode, an electrified cage, and the debut of WWE games on Google Stadia as well as a return to Nintendo Switch for WWE games. The first time for the brand since WWE 2K18.
You can view the full rating summary below:
This is an arcade-style fighting game in which players engage in wrestling matches using custom characters and WWE Superstars. Characters punch, kick, and throw each other during matches; players can also attack opponents by using chairs, poles, alligators, exploding barrels, and falling cars. Wrestlers react to damage by crying out in pain, and/or writhing on the floor. Matches are depicted in a somewhat exaggerated cartoon style—highlighted by impact sounds, slow-motion effects, and occasional explosions. In one sequence, wrestlers climb and are shocked by an electrified cage while grabbing bags of cash. Some female wrestlers wear outfits that expose moderate amounts of cleavage and/or buttocks; characters can perform taunt actions that are somewhat suggestive (e.g., a hula-styled circular dance).
