WWE 2K15: First Xbox One/PS4 In-Game Screenshot Revealed, $100 Collector's Edition Announced

A menacing-looking John Cena stares down Randy Orton in the first in-game screenshot; collector's edition includes an actual piece of the ring where Hulk Hogan appeared this year.

The first in-game screenshot for upcoming professional wrestling game WWE 2K15 was released today by none other than cover star John Cena. He dispatched the image today through his Twitter account, and publisher 2K Sports followed that up with the bigger version above.

In the work-in-progress image, Cena is staring down fellow fighter Randy Orton. 2K Sports says the image represents what WWE 2K15 will look like on "next-gen consoles," though it is not clear if the screenshot was captured on Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

WWE 2K15 launches October 28 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PS4. If you preorder the game, you'll receive two playable Sting characters at no extra cost.

The game's $100 special edition was also revealed today, by way of IGN. The "Hulkmania" collector's edition--which will only be available on Xbox One and PS4 and is limited to 25,000 units--includes a copy of the game and a collectible card hand-signed by Hulk Hogan. It also includes an actual piece of the ring canvas from Hogan's Monday Night Raw appearance on March 10 this year, making it worthy of the "collector's edition" description, indeed.

Definitely an upgrade, but I'm still not getting it on Day One. I'm a fan of WWE, but I don't think they're worth $60. The collector's edition will be nice for hardcore fanboys.

Cena Has The Most Realistic Look On His Face That Could Ever Come Out Of A WWE Video Game

If virtual Cena will be anything like the real Cena, it will be able to perform the same five moves every match.

He's just standing there... menacingly!

Don't know why I've not been following this.When it was first announced,I thought to myself "Meh,another cash-in" but there seems to be good amounts of improvements here and am really keepin an eye on this one.

Well at least a huge improvement considering how laughable the previous games looked like...they were literally PS2 remasters haha! 

Lighting looks really amazing though although the face kind of feels weird. But my question is will there be playable female divas in this game and will other characters also get the same visual treatment as that of John and Randy or will they simply be up-ressed last-gen ports? 

Now that they have ditched the PS2 and original Xbox versions,lets hope the animation is much more fluid and organic so as to complement the visual style.

Hopefully Punk won't get pulled from the roster. Also Paige better be included... Guess I'll find out Sunday.

BRING BACK MIXED MATCHES OR I'M NOT BUYING! The last I bought was 2009.

No I don't have a fetish for hitting women, I just want to hit and play with men and women equally. How boring would things be if Nina could only fight against Anna, Julia, Christie, or Chun Li against Cammy and never against Bison, Vega...

That kind of censorship is bullshit.

Graphics look top notch...but those are also probably the two models that had drastically the most time spent on them, given the star power. Basically, show me a guy like Heath Slater's model, and if its this detailed, then color me impressed.

that screenshot has Cena looking like Frankenstein. Great graphics but wow.

"includes an actual piece of the ring canvas"

I'm not personally into this stuff, but that's cool.

The real John Cena looks much more like a gorilla.

Randy Orton gives me chubby and I'm not even gay.

Go get him RKO. Graphics look ok but are they really in game graphics, Im kinda guessing they are the intro cutscene before you press start to load up the menus

PS4 is industry leader, how much is MS paying to get top billing in articles like this? I mean PS4 has almost twice the sales of X1 and it's mentioned last? Pretty weird.....

Can we just get a straight port of WWF No Mercy and WCW/NWO Revenge with online?

Yuke is still developing Smackdown series. 2k and Visual Concepts has shown they don't care much about their customers because the NBA 2k series has so many gltiches and they never patched them. I expect Smackdown to be more of the same.

Doesn't look that impressive i mean its definitely an improvement from last games

that picture is great and all , but we the consumers need to see some game play. And what is the story based on now.

Looks nice but I'm more concerned with the gameplay. And I'm not even going to upgrade to next gen till next year, it's just not worth it right now.

Are wrestling games still fun? Last one I played was on Super Nintendo and I loved it. Never played another one ever again though...

monson21502

@k_h_a_n yeah that would be really fun on pc. u can just spell out a move u want and they would do them. but wonder how we can get them to move threw the ring?

monson21502

@emgesp he will either look like whoopie golberg or richard sherman i bet

@chev0948  man I've been hearing great things about TNA lately. honestly I haven't watched since the WWE network came out but looks like it's time to check back in.

@Sagemode87 btw its the same thing with AC Unity. For the first time ever Ubisoft is using a Microsoft console to promote their game.

@Sagemode87 You're disappointed only because PS4 has been put after XONE in the title? WOW just....WOW -_-

@JDWolfie I'd rather have an update to Smackdown 2 Know your Role. 


A real one.

@JDWolfie The two greatest wrestling games of all time?  With online mode??  Nah it won't happen, unfortunately... Not as long as yukes is still in control of making games for the WWE....

@llantaeusll WWE games were exactly the same before 2K took over. Each year a hand full of bugs are fixed, only to include a bunch more which will never get patched and leaves fans hoping 'next year, will be the year'...

@ggregd OH MY GOD!!! REEALY?! This is a shocker. My life is changed

@ggregd Ironically the games are more real than the actual sport. Still darn entertaining thought.

Also, Poor attempt at annoying people.

@ggregd Neither is anything you see on TV. Even reality TV is scripted. Shocking, I know.

@ggregd Neither are movies. I invite you to take a bump in a ring without any preparation and tell me it's fake. Scripted and fake are 2 different things

@swaggoverhate Story mode was revealed yesterday by IGN. There will be too flavours this year. First one is Showcase, a look at some of the most popular rivalries in WWE history, a la Attitude and Wrestlemania in the previous games. Second is MyCareer, which will let you take a created superstar and play out a story line to reach the top card, a la MyCareer from the NBA2K games. MyCareer is only XboxOne and PS4 however.

And yes, I agree. Pretty picture, but lets see some darn gameplay! Also looking forward to seeing if create a story mode has survived the upgrade.

@JediMasterJ42 WWE 2K14 was the first wrestling game I bought in a decade. I spent the first two hours in the options menu listening to entrance themes. Oooooh yeeeeah.

@JediMasterJ42 The wrestling games on the 64 have been voiced and voted as some of the best wrestling games ever made.  Ever since then, however, there hasn't been anything worth playing
