2K Games has revealed Road to Glory, a new competitive online mode coming to WWE 2K18.
The new mode pits players against each other in daily matches to obtain stars, with the ultimate goal of earning entry into pay-per-view events. To compete in these events, which will coincide with real-life PPVs, players must either earn the required number of stars or simply “purchase [their] way” in, according to the official WWE 2K website.
2K also announced MyPLAYER for WWE 2K18, a customizable character creator that can be used in both the Road to Glory and MyCAREER modes. MyPLAYER provides eight fighting classes to choose from, ranging from the speed-focused High Flyer to the power-heavy Giant. “Hundreds of moves and Superstar parts” for characters can be unlocked through progression or by purchasing Loot Cases.
Loot Cases can also be earned through progression or by spending WWE 2K18’s in-game currency, VC. Bronze, Silver, and Gold Loot Cases will cost 2,500, 5,000, and 10,000 VC, respectively.
WWE 2K18 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 17. A Nintendo Switch version will also be available sometime this fall.
