What Modes Does WWE 2K16 Contain?

Follow

Hello Superstars!

A question we’ve been asked repeatedly is what game modes are available for which systems; this post will spell that out.

We've organized these modes down into sections, divided between Single Player and Multiplayer modes.

Additionally, there's a handy table at the bottom of this post that shows which platforms will have what modes available.

Single Player

Play

By selecting "Play", you can jump into a quick match. This mode provides an incredible amount of flexibility when it comes to crafting your match’s settings (like handicaps, special rules, and the number of participants). This mode is available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3.

These are the match types available in this mode:

  • One on One
  • Two on Two
  • Triple Threat
  • Fatal 4-Way
  • 6-Man
  • Handicap
  • Tournaments
  • Royal Rumble  

2K Showcase

2K Showcase lets players relive the career of Stone Cold Steve Austin, match-by-match. Players will experience first-hand the birth of Austin 3:16 at King of the Ring 1996 and follow Stone Cold’s path through his final match at WrestleMania XIX in 2003. Though you have to win each match in order to advance, matches feature optional objectives to complete to earn in-game content including new Superstars, Managers, and alternate attires. Bonus matches featuring key events from Austin’s time in WCW and ECW await those skilled enough to unlock them.

This mode is available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3.

Career Mode

WWE 2K16’s MyCAREER Mode lets players create a custom Superstar and guide them through a career in the WWE. Winning matches allows you to upgrade your Superstar’s attributes, abilities, and skills, while you’re able to spend your salary on other in-game items. You can create your own rivalries against other WWE superstars, as well as choose other matches to run in on. The run-ins will let you establish/cement rivalries, as well as gain new tag team partners. As you pass through the WWE ranks from NXT to Raw (with the ultimate goal of getting into the WWE Hall of Fame), you’ll not only go up against top WWE Superstars, but you’ll also be able to square off against those custom characters created by your friends. You’ll be able to shape your character’s personality via post-match interviews that factor your answers into Face/Heel traits. Finally, you’ll have encounters with The Authority; your storyline will vary, based on whether or not you choose to cooperate with The Authority’s directives.  

This mode is available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Universe Mode

A top-down management mode, WWE Universe allows you to run the WWE as you see fit.  Book matches, assign Superstars and Divas to shows and pay-per-views, create rivalries and alliances or watch them transpire on their own. For the first time, characters now have personality traits that can affect their decisions in gameplay and storylines. And with the new status effect system, the outcomes of these matches and stories can result in temporary boosts or penalties for those involved.

This mode is available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3.

NOTE: Status Effects and Personality Traits in this mode only exist on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Online

Below are the different online modes you can participate in, as well as the match types that are available. Each match type has further customization options once you’ve selected it.

Private Matches

This is only available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In Private Matches, players have the ability to invite friends to join their session. Private Sessions also provide  players with the option of including AI opponents in their matches though at least 2 of the participants must be human controlled. Below are the different types of matches in this mode:

  • One on One
  • Two on Two
  • Triple Threat
  • Fatal 4-Way
  • 6-Man

WWE Live

This is our standard matchmaking options: Pick your match type, the Superstar you want to play as, and then load into the practice/warm-up session to get ready while we find your opponent and set up the match.  When everything is ready, you’ll load into the match and - depending on the quality of your warm-up session - you can get a little boost to your earned prestige on the way out. Below are the different types of matches to participate in with this mode:

  • One on One
  • Two on Two
  • Triple Threat
  • Fatal 4-Way
  • 6-Man

2K Tonight

This mode provides dynamic nightly events, themed after all the major shows and Pay-Per-View events. These matches provide users with a boost in earnings for competing in them.

Team Up

In this mode, you can invite your friends to join you on a team in a 2 or 3-man tag team against other opponents.
