WWE 2K17 Mode Breakdown


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.

We've also included a chart at the bottom of this post that breaks down what modes are available on which platforms.

Single Player


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).

These are the match types available in this mode:

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


WWE 2K17’s MyCAREER Mode lets players create a custom Superstar and guide them through a career in the WWE. 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 players journey through the ranks they will be confronted by WWE legends such as Brock Lesner and his advocate, Paul Heyman. What happens when confronted by this imposing duo will greatly shape a player’s future career growth in WWE.


In WWE Universe Mode, you can book matches, assign Superstars to shows and pay-per-views, create rivalries and alliances or watch them transpire on their own. Our new Show Presentation system makes players feel like they are playing through a weekly episode of any WWE television or WWE Network program.  


The WWE 2K17 Creation Suite enables the WWE Universe to customize, build and share their own unique WWE Superstars, Arenas, Entrances, Shows and more. 

These are the creation types available in this mode:

  • Superstar
  • Move-Set
  • Entrance
  • Championship
  • Show
  • Arena
  • Video
  • Victory

Community Creations

  • Downloads
    • You can download shared content that other users created. You can use the content you download in other modes.
  • Uploads
    • You can upload user-created content to the server in UPLOADS.
  • Logo Manager
    • You can manage the INCOMING and LOCAL logo data. In INCOMING, the logos uploaded to the server via web are displayed, and only users can view them to download or delete. In LOCAL, the logos saved in the save data are displayed and they can be viewed and deleted.


2K Tonight

  • Fair fight mode where any customized elements can’t be used. The rule is that you can join the next match by winning the current match.

WWE Live

  • Public
  • 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
  • Team Up
    • You can invite your friends to join you on a team in a 2 or 3-man tag team against other opponents.
  • Private
    • Private match with your friends (Invitation only)
