WWE 2K20 is a wrestling simulation video game developed by Visual Concepts, Yuke's and NovaPen Productions and published by 2K Sports and NovaPen Productions. The game is the latest in the WWE 2K series and released on October 12, 2019 in North America and October 14, 2019 in Europe for each console. This is the first WWE 2K game to be updated monthly, with new renders and wrestlers added and updated on a regular basis. The cover features Becky Lynch on the cover and is the first game to be co-developed and published by NovaPen Productions.

Gameplay

Following its predecessors, WWE 2K20 continues to refine the gameplay of its predecessors, continuing to favour speed and fluidity rather than the simulation style of its predecessors. Players are able to select a variety of wrestlers including many making their game debuts. Players then choose a wide range of arenas to wrestle on. This game also includes many new match types, championships and an updated soundtrack. The game features the largest WWE 2K roster to date, featuring over 200 wrestlers. Production ceased on April 14, 2019, meaning rosters are updated accordingly to the week after WrestleMania at release.

Edit Superstars

This section allows you to, as the name suggests, edit your roster. You can choose which wrestlers appear on your rosters by clicking on their name in order to view their Settings and their Relationships and by clicking on the brand logo underneath their name. Settings show off the wrestlers attributes, abilities, finishers, hit point ratio, crowd reaction and attires (if they have any alternative attires) and can be changed freely (apart from the attributes which you need to download the Accelerator pack through the WWE Shop in order to do).

Edit Teams

This section, again, as the name suggests, allows you to edit the teams on your roster. There should already be a few premade teams on your roster unless you have removed them all; you can also add more teams with the limit being seventy teams in total, more than enough to work with. The events of your shows from WWE Universe mode may also lead to teams being created or disbanded as their allies and enemies list changes and the events of your show unfold, this can lead to some extremely strange random pairings. Upon editing or creating a new team you can name your team, choose the announcement name that best describes your team, edit the members of the team, the limit per team being five and you can even edit your teams entrance and tag team move set.

Title Management

This section, simply put; you can choose who is champion. Leaving a title Vacant will make the title defunct and therefore won’t be used for your shows.

Statistics

The Statistics sections allows you to view the statistics of your very own gameplay. In the very first section, Ranking Statistics 1, you can view which wrestlers you have played with the most and how many times you have played as that respective wrestler.

In Ranking Statistics 2 you can go a little more into detail with the type of matches you have played with a list of yur top ten most played matches being on display and how often you have played each match type listed. You can also view your Career Highlights which highlight such things like; win ratio for title matches, most opponents defeated in Slobber Knocker, number of wins with all parts at critical, number of ring collapse knockouts, number of finisher reversals and number of Royal Rumble wins.

Finally, you can view your win/loss record via the Match Records And Statistics section. How many times you have won, lost and drawn are disaplyed and the various methods in which you won or lost those matches with such as pinfall, submission, K.O., DQ, count out and other method (referring to matches with specific win conditions, such as climbing over the steel cage). To the right side you can also view how many times you have used a specific ability and you can also view how many times you have caused destruction with a table, a ladder and a chair.

WWE Universe

In the WWE Universe mode you have complete control over the show, you can book matches, determine who is on which brand, you can create your own tag teams between existing stars, you can create feuds between your favourite and least favourite stars, you can control the world of the WWE within your fingertips.

Play Matches

This section is where you can book your matches, put titles on the line and create your own storylines. The Play Matches section will come with a random, pre-existing card and it is up to you to change it how you wish. You can book any match with any superstars you have unlocked, including your own created wrestlers.

You can choose to Simulate the matches so the winners of the match are determined for you or you can Play the match in order to test your might against the other members of the roster and even edit the stipulations of the match booked with the ‘Match Rules' option and the Match Pace option in order to make the match ‘Normal', ‘Quick' or ‘Epic' which will determine how the match is laid out.

It is within the confines of this section that you can achieve the majority of the WWE Universe mode unlockables and trophies that need to be achieved.

Calendar

Clicking on Calendar will open up the calendar for the WWE year. It will show which shows are booked and on what days and you can choose to customize the calendar in order to change the day or date of events. If you can't be bothered simulating through all of the booked shows or want to do a certain event straight away, simply click on the event you want to simulate to and allow for the calendar to be simulated all the way up to that certain point.

Rivalries

This section, as the name suggests, allows you to set up specific rivalries for your shows. You can choose to view the current rivalries which will take you to a list of rivalries on your current brands and will also allow you to delete and create rivalries. By selecting to create a rivalry you can choose the type (one on one or two on two) and the duration of the rivalry (short rivalry; four weeks, medium rivalry; eight weeks, or long rivalry; twelve weeks) and, naturally, you can choose who is involved in the rivalry.

You can also choose to play a current rivalry, this option will take you straight to the first Rivalry Match booked on your calendar, whether it is the top rivalry on a specific brand or not. On top of all of thise, you can also view the rivalries that happened in the past and who happened to win a specific rivalry, some interesting rivalries are randomly created.

WWE.com

In this section you will find the news that comes as a result of the past week's shows, events such as a new champion being crowned can be found in the WWE.com section. If you click on Latest News you can open up to a new section which provides you with even more news regarding what is going on with your brands and your shows.

In this section you can also view the current rankings in the WWE. By clicking on the current rankings you can view the current rankings for each championship currently in contention for each current brand and see how the superstars on your roster are faring against the other superstars of the roster. Each wrestler will be placed into title contention for the particular title they are most suited for on your roster and superstars can be added or removed depending on how well they perform on the shows throughout a weekly basis.

You can Edit the ranks how you wish so the wrestler you want on top is on top, however they still need to do well on a weekly basis to maintain the number one contenders position, otherwise you are going to have to Edit the ranks constantly to keep them at the top. This is a good way to make sure certain wrestlers win specific championships.

There is also a Stats section in the WWE.com section which allows you to look at the statistics of your championships, like how many times the current champion has held the championship and how long they have held the championship for currently. Clicking into a specific championship belt will allow you to view the rankings of the championship belt and find out the amount of times a specific superstar has held the belt and how many weeks they have held the belt for.

You can also view the statistics of your shows currently active, you can view things like who were the past champions of your major, minor, tag and divas titles and you can also view historical statistics such as who has held the titles of your specific brand the most times and who has held the titles of your specific brand for the longest period of time.

You can also view things such as the number of opponents eliminated in a single Royal Rumble, the most time spent in a Royal Rumble, the most wins of a Royal Rumble, most opponents eliminated in total and number of appearances in a Royal Rumble. You can also view things such as the most wins at Wrestlemania, the most appearances at Wrestlemania and the most amount of main events at Wrestlemania, number of Money In The Bank wins and number of wins after cashing in the Money In The Bank. All of the default statistics generally reference actual, real-life statistics.

On top of all of that, you can even add your own ‘Major' or ‘Minor' created events to the calendar, ‘Major' events allow for a much grander roster with more championships to contest for and greater storylines to be created and ‘Minor' events allow for a smaller roster, no championships can be exclusive to this event but they can be defended on the actual show when you create the match card, it is, as the name suggests, simply a minor show.

Edit Superstars

This section allows you to customize every single superstar, whether they are on your roster or not. This section will list every single superstar you have unlocked, created or downloaded and you will be able to edit things like their attributes, their abilities, their finishers, their hit point ratios and even their crowd reaction alignment. You can also edit their Contendership Settings; this is simply another method to pushing your desired superstar up the ranks.

Road to WrestleMania

MyCareer

Players will take on the role of an NXT superstar/diva and follow the evolution of their WWE career, from the WWE Performance Center and NXT to the main event at WrestleMania and eventually to the WWE Hall of Fame. The mode also features a morality system to allow players to decide whether they want to play as a face (fan favorite) or a heel (rule breaker) with each choice having an effect on the meter. There is also a 1-5 star match rating system that rates matches based on technique, pacing and momentum, with squash matches getting lower ratings and back-and-forth matches getting higher ratings. Wins and losses have little effect on match ratings with the goal being to put on the best match possible. Decisions will affect outcomes in this mode.

Proving Ground

Proving Ground pits players against an overpowered Brock Lesnar. The player will choose one of the NXT Superstars to face Lesnar in a one-on-one match with a 30-minute time limit.

Welcome to WWE

Welcome to WWE pits players against five random Superstars in order of their status (Jobber, Midcard, Upper Midcard, Main Event and Specialty).

Match Types

One on One (1 vs. 1)

Match Type Description
TBA Image
Normal
The singles match is the most basic of all professional wrestling matches, which involves only two competitors competing for one fall. Victory is obtained by pinfall, submission, knockout, countout or disqualification.
TBA Image
Falls Count Anywhere
A falls count anywhere match is a match where pinfalls can take place in any location, negating the standard rule that they must take place inside the ring and between the ropes. As such, this also eliminates the usual "countout" rule. As the match may take place in various parts of the arena, the "falls count anywhere" provision is almost always accompanied with a "no disqualification" stipulation to make the match a hardcore match, so as to allow wrestlers the convenience to use any objects they may find wherever they wrestle.
TBA Image
Backstage Brawl
A backstage brawl takes place in the backstage area rather than the arena. Wrestlers can battle each other in various locations such as the Boiler Room or parking lot. Both wrestlers are allowed to use everything around them. This includes the using the cars as weapons and anything found around them. First one to knockout their opponent is the winner.
