WWE 2K14 Phenom Edition revealed

2K reveals $100 collector's edition for upcoming wrestling game will feature Undertaker on the cover.

2K today announced the $100 WWE 2K14 Phenom Edition, a collector's bundle that features iconic wrestler Undertaker on its cover. The collector's edition will be available at launch on October 29 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The WWE 2K14 Phenom Edition includes a tin coffin box, collectible art card personally autographed by Undertaker, and the Undertaker "American Badass" playable character.

In addition, the premium bundle packs in the WWE Undertaker - The Streak movie, as well as Ultimate Warrior as a playable character. All preorders for WWE 2K14 will receive Ultimate Warrior as a playable character on launch day.

WWE 2K14 launches October 29 in North America and November 1 internationally.

2K parent company Take-Two Interactive acquired the World Wrestling Entertainment license for video games earlier this year following THQ's bankruptcy. The multiyear licensing agreement will see WWE games continue to be developed by Yuke's.

I would like to see all era costumes for old Undertaker though and not just a select few.

I havent watched it since it wwf, but I simply love the games, well the good ones anyway. This looks promising as it contains faces im familiar with and if it has the gameplay of 2k13 then I think it will be good.

I think this game will not be a big change from last year since 2k just bought the title from couple of months.

First, Mark Calaway (The Undertaker) is not personally signing these copies.  They will use an autopen to mimic it.  He will sign the template, but everything else is going to be done by a machine.  

Second, this does not look very improved at all.  It looks like a simple roster update (like Madden) without the added features of a new Madden title.  That does not make it a good game.

I am personally waiting for PS4/Xbox One entry of the WWE 2K series.  Right now, this is just a simple cash grab by Take-Two.

A big chunk of that price tag is going towards paying The Undertaker for his autograph which is a rare thing to get these days.  As an Undertaker fan this is a must have

I haven't been a fan of WWF/WWE for a very long time (since back when WCW was still around too), but I will admit that this is a pretty cool collector's edition.

i'll stick to original edition but the game looks really great.

If 2K have a Statue of Paul Bearer, I would have consider pre-order the Phenom Edition but it looks like I'll pass on this. [R.I.P Paul Bearer]

I'm not expecting too much from 2K14, I hope they drop Yuke's as a developer for the next game

Nothing about this screams "I'm worth $100"... They could have done so much better. A more detailed coffin case would have been a start. Not to mention a different case that suits it better. 2K is so damn lazy when it comes to their artwork. It's always just some random render on the same redundant backdrop. Step your game up guys. 


The undertakers cover should have been one that represented all that is The Undertaker, not The Rock... The coffin should have some sort of faux leather on top & be embossed to look creepy. Nothing in this is worth $100. It's a DVD that is obviously not selling well, a portrait I can print out myself with a stamped autograph, a controller skin I will never use, and some BS DLC that should be in the game anyways.

Is that a controller skin I see in the picture? No mention of that in the article.

With the WWE games in 2Ks hands, im sure the games will do great.

So this won't sell. The movie it comes with is available on Netflix and has been for months. There's nothing to support the price they are charging since there will be many core gamers jumping to the next gen. This isn't a smart bet from 2K.

If it came with a fog machine and a gong, I would consider it.

You'd think with the Phenom edition they would put the Undertaker on the cover.  Or at the very least have a reversable cover with him on one side, The Rock on the other.

not buying it since that hack of an actor is still on the cover of this edition. I would pay $100 just for anyone other than the rock on the cover.

I'm surprised Undertaker is still on WWE o.O

How do you pronounce that? Like venom? or phee-nom?

I guess having his name on the cover counts as having the Undertaker on it? That bundle clearly still has the Rock on the game case.

The game ain't worth shit. $100 dollars? How about $10?

make it signed by undertaker himself and i will pay 100$ for this, undertaker is my favourite wrestler of all time period!

If its signed by the rock / HHH / John Cena / Stone Cold / Undertaker then I can give $100. Otherwise its a waste of money. :/

@CeZar_87 good points on every thing but the dlc yes it should be in the game but it is with held to be given as a preorder bonus to generate preorder sales. you wont die with out the ultmate warrior in your game. this will stop when we 1 stop doing digital data at all or 2 stop doing preorders & collectors additions

@ominous_prime I'm sure many fans will pay just for the autograph. That's always a sweet extra that I wish more companies added.

@ominous_prime Well this is the same the WWE that will charge you 70 dollars for a WWE painted metal chair

@berserker66666 Where did you get an early copy from that allowed you to bestow your considered opinion to the rest of us??

@cmat35 That should have been the cover a real wrestler or The Shield killing the rock then I could buy that and celebrate the destruction of the fake ass actor.

@deathblow3  have you  seen the enlarged image file above it shows rock on the cover and another poster it shows undertaker and ultimate warrior, another one is also a poster of undertaker   alone but undertaker   will not be on the game cover art alone

deathblow3
deathblow3

@rIVAL_sWORD84 @deathblow3 yes and that doesnt mean anything its announced with a undertaker cover then it is. also the items you mention if you look close the one on the right is the signed picture. and on the left is an xbox dlc content card that comes with games.
