More Details On WWE 2K15: New Characters, Body Scans, Motion Capture, Audio

We’ve got new details on the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game, courtesy of GameInformer.com:

– Developer Visual Concepts will have a much larger role in this year’s game, alongside longtime developer Yukes. Visual Concepts is using their state-of-the-art scanning technology to create the most realistic character models ever seen in a wrestling video game. They have traveled with WWE on the road and already have 90% of the game roster scanned in.

– The new character models are “leaps and bounds” closer to their real-life counterparts. Hair, skin, faces, and ring gear are all majorly upgraded. Visual Concepts is capturing a variety of facial expressions so that wrestlers will express more realistic emotions in the ring.

– The updated list of confirmed playable characters includes John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Cesaro and AJ Lee.

– Visual Concepts is working toward more realistic match pacing and flow. The characters will have five times the number of animations than last year’s WWE 2K14.

– The game’s cutoff date for inclusion is several months later than in recent years, allowing for more ‘current’ roster and storylines to be included.

– Audio is getting a complete overhaul as well, with five times the sound of last year’s game. For the first time, Jerry “The King” Lawler and Michael Cole are being recorded in tandem, creating more natural conversation threads. There will be a 30-35 hours of commentary per announcer to keep things fresh and prevent hearing the same calls over and over.

We’ll learn even more about WWE 2K15 this Thursday, when the first trailer is expected to be released at the ongoing E3 video game convention in Los Angeles, California.

WWE 2K15 video game will be released on October 28th for Playstation 4, XBox One, PS3 and XBox 360.
