WWE 2K15 will be available for PlayStation4 and Xbox One in North America on November 21, 2014. It introduces a new element to the gameplay experience through a career-driven mode called MyCareer. So players start out at the WWE Performance Center where they get mentored by trainer Bill DeMott, then they go on to compete at NXT. Then players move up to WWE’s main roster to vie for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. There’s also a new stamina tracker that keeps a record of a player’s health, momentum and stamina during gameplay.
While the makers of WWE 2K15 claim it’s the “the most realistic simulation to date for the franchise,” – surprise, surprise, not everyone agrees. Dave Rudden of IGN reviewed 2K15 and reports that the realistic stamina isn’t quite as beneficial as you’d think. “As matches go on, things slow down too much… there were many incidents where I ran out of gas early and became more of a bystander than a competitor.”
