WWE 2K22‘s cover art has reportedly leaked, along with information about pre-order bonuses, and the WWE 2K22 Deluxe Edition.
According to TechnikNews, Rey Mysterio will feature on the cover of both the regular and deluxe editions of the game.
According to the report, the game will offer 3-day early access starting March 8, and the WWE 2K22 Deluxe Edition will feature the Undertaker Immortal Pack and the season pass.
Players who pre-order the game will also receive the Undertaker Immortal Pack.
This bundle is said to include “Three additional Undertaker personas, three additional Undertaker personas: Phantom Mask Undertaker, Lord of Darkness Undertaker, Boneyard Match Undertaker, MyFACTION EVO cards for Undertaker, and MyFACTION Perks and Bonuses.”
WWE 2K20 was a disappointing full debut for developer Visual Concepts, resulting in one of the lowest Metacritic scores in 2K’s history, mostly due to a huge number of technical issues at release.
Late last year, 2K revealed a new trailer for the game, which showed off a new control scheme, including a new dodge button.
The trailer also shows off a number of new modes, including a new 2K Showcase based on the history of Rey Mysterio.
Other modes briefly shown include:
- MyGM (booking your own promotion)
- MyFaction (creating your own stable)
- MyRise (creating a new player and progressing through the ranks)
- Universe Mode (playing through the calendar, one show at a time)
- Creation Suite
In 2020, in a bid to enact a “renewed focus” on quality, publisher 2K hired former Double Helix studio head Patrick Gilmore to take over WWE 2K.
