Ahead of WWE 2K18’s release this month, 2K Games released more in-depth details about this year’s game.

With approval from 2K, several YouTuber’s are featuring Superstar entrances. All women’s entrances, except for DLC characters Beth Pheonix and Ruby Riot, have now been released and can be seen below courtesy of DenkOps – Chris Denker:

Additionally, YouTuber The Revelleution has a peak at new Create-a-Wrestler items for women including hairstyles, gear, makeup, and more:

According to IGN, this year’s CAW suite will include:

  • A variety of face templates that represent different races and ethnicities, that you can use as is, or modify to your liking.
  • New Body Types customization to shape the ideal body type to your Superstars.
  •  Hair style flair
  • The ability to place Scars around all over the body.
  • Fully customizable teeth
  • New Material Types such as Carbon Fiber, Glitter, Glow and Black Light.
  • The “infamous” issue with the edges of a design/logo fading out when being stretched, has finally been addressed in WWE 2K18, with a new Logo Mapping method, that allows you to fully wrap the logo around the part.
  • The Stitch Pattern feature from last year has been improved and redesigned, now allowing you to draw the patterns first, apply them and resize them, as well as save them to be re-used on any other Superstar.
  • To go along with the new Lighting System in WWE 2K18, in the Create A Superstar Menu, there is now the ability to preview the different lighting scenarios throughout the game, with options for Backstage, Match Lighting, Day Light, Black Light and Lights Off.
  • The Lighting Preview comes really handy when applying and previewing the Glow and Black Light material, for easier control on how intense you want these effects to be. And you are not limited to just Attires and Clothes. You can also apply these effects to Tattoos, Body Art, and hair as well. And when you combine this with Create An Entrance, you can really create some interesting looks that really help your superstar stand out ala Chris Jericho’s jacket or Naomi‘s GLOW entrance.
  • You will now have more control on the Menu Pose as well. Not only you can choose which pose you want for the body, but hands pose and face expressions can also be individually customized, to give your Superstar a more distinct look. In addition, it’s now also possible to choose the Entrance Attire as a Menu Screen Pose.

2K Games also revealed character rankings for some Superstars:

Missing from the announcement are rankings for Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Ember Moon, Stephanie McMahon, Lita, Ivory, Jacqueline, Trish Stratus, Tamina, Nikki Cross, Summer Rae, Paige, Brie Bella, and Alundra Blayze, along with DLC Characters Beth Phoenix and Ruby Riot.

Other new game modes include create-a-match mode, a Road to Glory mode (akin to My Career but it still doesn’t allow you to play as a female Superstar), WWE Universe mode, and more.

WWE 2K18 will be in stores on October 17, 2017.

What do you think about this preview of the game? Will you be buying it? Who will you play as? Who will you be creating? Sound off in the comments below.

 
  • albert albie aldahawi

    Oh how I wish candice was in the game with Beth but they didn’t do showcase this year!!

    I’m so happy though this game
    Has so many girls it’s amazing! I loved svr09 cause we had a lot of girls at the time. And before that I loved svr08 for GM mode. And both had candice lol they are my fav 2 so far.

    • Jo9834

      Agreed Candice would have been such a great addition. Do you wrestle in Sydney by anychance? your profile looks familiar?Sorry random

  • Darryl lee

    I like the new updates. But the rankings though. Nikki’s ranking higher than Sasha? That’s overboard. Also Naomi, natalya, and nia jax’s ratings are a tad bit too high also.

    • Trish 96
      Lita 95
      Beth 93
      Asuka 93
      Mickie 92
      Charlotte 91
      Sasha 91
      Jacqueline 90

      Nattie 89
      Naomi 89
      Ivory 88
      Becky 88
      Nikki 88
      Paige 87

    • Shawn Ellis

      Naomi’s ranking is perfectly fine hater

      • Darryl lee

        Seriously? Naomi’s ranking is higher than Sasha’s?

        • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

          Sasha longest reign as Champion is 28 days Naomi won 2 titles but technically lost it only once compared to Sasha not successfully retaining her title not once Naomi held the title for 140 days and she beat 5 women at WM and she beat Alexa 3 times for the title Sasha beat Alexa once then lost her title

        • Shawn Ellis

          Ugh yea Naomi’s ranking deserves to be higher then Sasha been on main roster way longer. Naomi hardly looses matches and her two title reigns have surpassed Sasha 4. Plus she had the big match at wrestle mania this game is based on the prior year u do know that right

    • But you have nothing to say about Alexa’s rating??

      • Darryl lee

        Her too. Though she’s the most entertaining on the roster.

  • NyuBomber

    As someone who is in solely for CAWs and any benefits they get, this is looking real good!

  • The Earl of Lemongrab

    At last! Now we can talked about the game! Nia Jax classified as heavyweight was a very pleasant surprise! Assuming it’s not exclusive to Nia, now we can make big female CAWs and not have the smaller women throw them like a rag doll. Dissapointed we only got a few addition in clothes and hair I wish they added the hair from women last year too, really like Dana’s hair last year

    • Richy Kelly

      I really hope we can make more heavier girls. I plan to make some powerhouses girls and some heavyweights. Like jazzy gabet & piper navin from the Mae Young Classic.

    • ???

      Are you sure that Nia will no longer be thrown by smaller women? Because I remember this thing only work with the men I don’t know if this year is different ? Please help

      • Richy Kelly

        I saw a video of her vs Sasha and other videos. You can still lift her but she not easily taking down with a Irish whip.

        • ???

          Ew this is ridiculous, she’s too big It’s impossible!

          • Richy Kelly

            I know they need to fix that problem because I don’t want any small women who are not in the same weight class to lift her or women of that heavyweight class.

          • ???

            Imagine when I make a CAW of Chyna and Beth Phoenix and have small women lift them like a rag dolls ?? LOL it’s stupid

          • Richy Kelly

            I know. I hope they improved it this year since women can be heavyweights. Are you excited for this game ? What are your pros and cons ?

          • ???

            I hope !

            Yes I’m very excited, never been excited for a WWE game that much !

            Pros :

            1- Finally big women roster, alot of my favourites are there and I can play as whoever I want!

            2- Ivory and Jacqueline my favourite childhood inspirational are there along with my current favourites like Sasha Banks and Maryse !

            3- The new gameplay system has alot of promising things , they seem fun .

            4- I can use CAWS and bring my favourites like Chyna , AJ Lee and Sable !

            5- The graphics look so beautiful and real , they fixed Sasha and Stephanie’s faces in WWE 2K17 (They were ugly in that game)

            Cons :

            1- No voices for the wrestlers , like groans and screaming when the wrestlers fight .. I don’t know when they removed the voices I felt like I’m playing with fake dolls :(

            2- Still no “Create a story” mode which is annoying.

            3- No “My Career ” for the women .

            4- The lift system, if they didn’t fix the small women lift heavy weight women thing it will definitely be a flaw , but if they fixed this it will be in pros !

            But overall I’m so excited!
            How about you? Your pros and cons ?

          • Richy Kelly

            I really wish that had create a story. I got into that late when they had t years and years ago.

            I’m excited about that game because I remember when I got my PS4 years ago and I had wwe2k15 and you couldn’t create women at all. I was so mad.

            Some pros for me are

            1. Great and big women’s roster.

            2. Some people being updated like naomi , Charlotte, and Asuka and so on.
            3. A bunch of new girls on the roster to play with.

            And the creation suite looks good and the team adding little details, like menu pose and pre match tunts for title matches is good.

            Some con’s for me are
            1. Them not updateding somr people , like the women legends.

            2. No my career for women. They can totally do one. With the roster and they can create some in game women superstars like they did , ex baron blade from the other game.

            3. No story mode.
            4. Just little fixes to Universe mode.

            But overall I’m ready for this game to come out and and I’m ready to play it and created a dream roster and play Universe mode too.

      • A?.

        Watched a video where she got dropkicked a few times but didn’t fall. Idk about the lifting tho

        • Shawn Ellis

          That’s a nice addition if she didn’t fall then it does apply

        • The Earl of Lemongrab

          That’s what I saw too. So I just assume she had the Immovable ability on

    • The Wicked Bitch

      Right? I was tired of girls like Alexa and Sasha lifting Nia up in the last game. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/95557ca2ad2e9673ad1fd4d3951d60a6d5556d956a45ce19c3dcd6c0d5a91975.jpg

      • ???

        Some people said they watched Sasha lift Nia ..

        • The Wicked Bitch

          Mess..they better fix that

          • ???

            I know right ?! This is ridiculous, I want to create CAW Chyna in the future , imagine that Alexa or any small woman can lift Chyna that easily? LOL

          • The Wicked Bitch

            Yes. Hopefully they can patch it or maybe Sasha lifting up Nia was only a glitch

  • -V

    I’m still shook by the fact that Maryse, Mickie & Beth are in the same game together, it’s been soo long! October 17 please come fast, I need this!

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Right! Throw in Foxy and Nattie we could have some diva era moments in the game. It would’ve been awesome if Melina and Kelly Kelly was added.

      • -V

        Yess! I was thinking about Michelle & Eve as well, ugh <3

  • Richy Kelly

    I can’t wait for this game to come out. All the info we go so far is good even though I wish we had new hair styles and clothes. I’m ok with what we are getting and what we have.
    I can’t wait to update people and make my create a wrestlers as well.

  • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

    Still mad we can’t use Tyler Breeze’s furry boots for the women this year tbh.

    A little disappointed that they didn’t add any longer women’s hairstyles, but the old ones looks reanimated and really good so I’m not that mad.

    Maryse’s spinning back breaker are in the game and the new French Kiss pinning animation is literally so good.

    Definitely using the new animation for Insult to Injury.

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Why can’t we use Tyler Breeze boots? I used the last year for my divas.

    • LBOneOfKind

      same thing i said wish got more longer hairstyles in the game or ability to change the length of hairstyles like we could in HCTP and SVR games

  • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

    Finally we can have heavyweight girls and I can’t wait to customize my championship in career mode and use the new black light and lights off materials and I also love how Naomi’s overall is so high this year but Nia Jax should be higher but the way they book her is horrible so ig. Can’t wait to create some better female CAWS this year wish they added more hair but at least they fixed the previous ones.

  • ???

    It’s been a long time since I have been excited for a WWE game ! Wow so much females this year !!

    Some women are so damn overrated like Alexa and Nikki Bella, while some are otherwise ..

    Alexa and Nikki Bella should be at most 80 , they are more than Jacqueline, Lita, Ivory and 4HW (Except Charlotte) which is very unfair.

    My question is , does this year women will have the carry system thing ? Because I remember it was only activated for the men in the last game , please tell me that the women will have it this year >_< !! I don't want to see Nia been carried that easily by Alexa lol

    My Caw (with overalls) will be :
    Chyna – 90
    Sable – 76
    Candice Michelle – 78
    Layla – 80
    AJ Lee – 81
    Eve Torres – 82
    Kelly Kelly – 76
    Torrie Wilson – 79
    Debra – 67
    The Kat – 70
    Milena – 84
    Michelle Mccool – 83

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      I saw a video of a women’s battle royal and Naomi was carrying Charlotte so yea

      • ???

        No I mean weight class , like some women shouldn’t carry Nia because she’s heavy weight

        • Typical Heel

          The videos i watched with Nia showed her with that abillity that makes you not fall easily (which only works for heavyweights and super-heavyweights) so that must be a sign

    • The Wicked Bitch

      “Overrated” lol Alexa’s overall is that high because she dominated 2017, it’s not based on the wrestling skills. But I agree that Nikki’s overall is a little bit too high, she didn’t do too much this year.

      • ???

        I know it’s not all about pure wrestling , she has great charisma and mic skills .. but see her more over than Lita , Jacqueline, Mickie James, Ivory isn’t fair because they are legends..

        She only needs to improve her wrestling skills and then she’ll be there with the best , I’m not trashing her or something but her being the same level as Trish Stratus is just too much ..

        • The Wicked Bitch

          Ik I’m not saying that she should have a higher overall than the legends, but she deserves to be up there with Charlotte if we’re talking about current girls because she’s been booked really strong this year..Naomi deserves the high rating too.

      • ???

        In the end , this is my opinion.

      • Shawn Ellis

        Yea it’s based on that persons year

        • Shawn Ellis

          Naomi’s so high so won two titles and a match at wrestle mania

    • NoWayHoeSay

      Debra??

      • ???

        Yes, I like her so why not ? LOL

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Candice should be just as high as Eve and Kelly should be a 78.

  • Gato_wiska

    Boo still no career mode for women?

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      It was considered but they didn’t add one hoepfully next year when we get more women

      • Gato_wiska

        I hope PC modders will do something.

  • GlowTime

    Dana looks amazing!

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    My 2k18 pros and cons

    Pro’s
    -Women roster update and number of women in the game
    -Creation Suite improved
    -Better graphics
    -Carry System
    -Mutli man matches expanded
    -We can skip intros in Universe Mode
    -Universe Mode update
    -Women can be tag partners with Men in Universe Mode again!

    Cons
    – No women can be played in Mycareer or Road to glory
    -Caws still only get two attires
    -Promo engine still somewhat sucks
    -DLC pack is trash with the exception of a few superstars

    Can someone let me know if we can do a women’s royal rumble this year?

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      I heard you can’t do an all women rumble

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Uggggghhhhhh!!!! They really failed the women again this year. They think adding a bunch of women and giving them cool updates satisfies us women division fans but it doesn’t. Why can’t they be able to do everything like the men in the game. Mortal Kombat doesn’t have this problem or any other big franchise game. I will never understand the sexism in these guys that makes this game.

    • NoWayHoeSay

      How u know promo thing somewhat sucks? U got the game boo?

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I watched a video on YouTube with someone playing the promo in Universe Mode. They’ve only update the fact that your lines fit your superstar. For example The Miz will say things he would only say instead of a bunch of lines. And they fixed the point system. My problem with it is that it’s just basic. On tv we have more than one person in a promo, we have contract signing’s, managers interrupting the promo to make matches. If they included some of that than I will be impressed.

    • BC

      Yay mixed tag is back!?

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Is it? I would assume cause we can have a tag team with men and women.

    • LBOneOfKind

      don’t forget we didnt get no new hair styles in CAW mode except 3 with one them being Donald Trump hair

  • A?.

    Okay but I’m shook at Summer? They upgraded her model, skin and entrance! I like all of the models tbh, but I highly dislike Sasha and Alexa entrances, they’re so 2015.

    • BC

      Damn and that was almost 3 years ago smh

  • The Wicked Bitch

    Finally y’all came thru with a 2k thread

    I remember the days when a high overall for a girl was like 65, now they have higher overalls than some of the men, as they should

    • ???

      The dark days LOL , remember when there were weight classes and there was “Diva Weight”

  • NoWayHoeSay

    Just gonna be maryse for the next year

  • Mark?

    I hope you can make skinny CAWS for male superstars. It sucked that in last years game my fierce tranny CAW I trolled with online had to be muscular.

    • Typical Heel

      ???? right 2k16 the men could be skinny, 2k17 forced bulkiness like the older games

  • The Wicked Bitch

    I remember in 2k14 and older games when there were only like 4 active girls in the game..Now we have like 32 girls and most of them are active wrestlers too.

  • Rosanna

    Ember being a 79 and she only lost 2 matches? Bye..

    • iconicpeyton

      she’s lost 4 matches, the matches were;
      Ember vs Asuka (Takeover:Orlando)
      Ember vs Asuka (Takeover:Brooklyn)
      Ember and Liv vs Peyton and Billie (NXT Episode in march i think)
      Ember vs Peyton vs Liv (in February

      • Rosanna

        I mean taking a pin or submission. She only lost 2 matches and those was two matches she lost via submission was too Asuka. There’s no reason Becky, Bayley should be higher than her what so ever and some others.

        • iconicpeyton

          lol yeah, i expected her to be atleast 83.

    • Omar J Tahhan

      But you can change that!
      Right?

      • Rosanna

        If you have season pass you can get accelerator.

    My entrance theme for 2k ?

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OYhXJaEbw7c

  • ARGirl1011

    It is absolutely ridiculous that we still can’t do MyCareer with women.

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Very ridiculous

  • Billie Kay will be the most dominant woman on my roster…

  • DayOneISH!

    Don’t know if it’s just me but Trish Stratus looks even worse this year than last year and it’s the same character model.

    I’m surprised how spot on Nikki Bella is this year.She didn’t even need a new entrance but she looks amazing they really nailed her.SUMMER RAE is the biggest shocker this year for me I wasn’t expecting this huge upgrade she has.

    It’s a shame we can’t do a female royal rumble all these women in this game and you still can’t do one.

    • TorrieTrishStacyLita

      They did Trish dirty yet again. I won’t even be using her

      • DayOneISH!

        She doesn’t even do her signature pose at the stage with the lights turned off.And I WANT the cowboy hat and coat look I shouldn’t have to make this 2k.
        https://sportsmusicwomen.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/126595_o.gif

        • GOD STRATUS•

          The meaning of iconic

        • TorrieTrishStacyLita

          Me too!!! They keep giving us this weird remixed Trish face entrance and then the same heel Main Event attire. Makes no sense for literally the greater WWE diva of all time

      • Jayy

        I actually like this Trish just wish they would update her attire and hair style but face wise Trish looks good just like last year her face was one of the best

  • Tina Olsen

    I think lita, Mickie, Ivory and Jackie should be 85 or more. Mickie being an 80 is a joke.

    • Richy Kelly

      True

  • txistedbliss

    Hoping she has a separate championship entrance or smtg cause the one we saw was a REAL let down https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/223d3a261f253bbf5d7178991d0f888ef5e1596b92af25970629f0be0a82c8db.jpg

      OMG, I just burst out laughing at this pic lol

  • willh

    Me buying this game was VERY much dependent on whether or not you could do MyCareer with women…. The fact that we can’t is ridiculous. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ab2a00427d41ad754ccd4f7bd2dbe3f4a886031bcfedc06c34788bedfafc7b39.gif

  • MyleneCruz

    Yal talking abt summer. Have yal seen Foxy? She looks goodt! If not the best in MY opinion!

    • Foxy’s abs look amazing in this game

      • MyleneCruz

        Yasss and that hair is everything.

        • One of my favorite Foxy models, maybe my favorite

          • MyleneCruz

            Same.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Sasha’s entrance is horrendous

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Nikki naomi char and Alexa all rated over Sasha ? Mess

    • Some argue that the overalls are about how the superstars previous year played out. I can See Naomi, Charlotte and Alexa having higher overalls if its about the previous year alone. They all had title reigns that lasted a lot longer than Sasha’s. They were the center of their respective divisions and they got super over. Nikki didn’t really do much at all last year so that makes no sense. Now if their overalls were based upon what it should be: a culmination of how good the person is OVERALL…then Sasha should definitely be above all 3. I never understood how they decided these things anyway. Ember a 79??? It all makes little to no sense.

    • Xaos

      Sasha had a terrible year. deal with it

  • BC

    I’m not looking forward to the game as much anymore lol. :(((

    Like yeah, the roster is cool and all but CAW mode is pretty much the same. So disappointed with the poor hair update lol. Ughhhhh. Can’t do My Career mode with female superstars. Universe Mode hasn’t really been updated. It’s literally 2k17 with new graphics in terms of features. Jk. Lol.

    That being said I’ll still get it lmao. I still play 2k17 once a week so I’ll still enjoy the game.

    If you have a Xbox one please share your gamer tag with me so we can play online

  • IconicTrio

    Bllie (76) and Peyton (77) have lower overalls than Carmella? Eww.

    Emma is too low. She should be 78 or 79 at least.

    • They’re development so it’s believable

      • IconicTrio

        Summer Rae, Emma and Dana Brooke all deserve higher overalls than Carmella… ignore me, I’m quite butthurt over it xD

        • TAYNARA CUNTI.

          Carmella wins more than them. It’s about realism, not your favorites.

    “Making his way to the ring” for the women’s entrances? ffs its 2018.

  • LaurenYorkStan

    Yall acting like we can’t change the overalls ???

  • tstumo

    Sasha looks a mess in this game. I don’t like the way she looks at all. So won’t be using her or even Trish. Two of my all time favs I have no interest in using. I’m SO thankful Maryse Is in because shes my only other fav besides Naomi. So It’ll be Maryse and Naomi this time around for me

  • TAYNARA CUNTI.

    @LeWoman:disqus I’m using your overalls. They’re the best I’ve seen so far.

  • Match of Year Maker

    What the hell is Alexa’s ranking is higher than Sasha’s and is the same as Charlotte’s ???

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Vince…apparently WWE not only decides who gets to be in the game but also the overalls as well. That’s why Roman is the strongest dude in the game at 95 and everyone else is 93 and lower (current and legends included)

      • Match of Year Maker

        That sucks

  • Corey Anderson

    I hope they do a show case with mickie and beth like when mickie finally beat beth on raw for the women’s championship

  • ALEXA has the same overall as Charlotte AND Naomi?!?!?!

      Seriously smh…

  • Omar J Tahhan

    I’ve been stuck with 2k14 tell this day.
    I will be finally getting a PS4 and 2k18 since it got too many of my favs in it. Yay!!!
    But my major worries is if there is enough Joshi, Indy, knockout’s CAWs?

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    I know we can change these messy overalls but we gotta get the season pass or get the accelerator. $$$$ These overalls are getting worse every year like half the women last year were just 73 or less.

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    I don’t mind that we are getting less DLC but it should not cost the same as last year’s! Where we got more for the same price.
