WWE 2K17 was a solid overall game but there are always features to be made better and wrinkles to smoothen out and WWE 2K18 looks like a solid improvement.
With the reveal of Seth Rollins as the cover star of the latest installment and some solid overall screenshots, WWE 2K18 looks to be the most realistic game in the franchise to date.

2K18 offers stunning graphics as well as some fluid gameplay that far outshines its predecessors.
MyCareer returns in 2K18 with even more improvements from last year’s game. This year, the recent Brand Split will be used to develop everyone’s individual experience.
MyCareer will allow free roaming backstage for the first time allowing players to shape their own destiny on their rise to the top of the WWE.
The Create-a-Superstar mode has been updated with even more customization options for players to fully immerse themselves in the game.
Improvements have been made to existing features like Create-A-Superstar, Create-a-Video, Create-a-Arena, and the all new Create-a-Match mode.
A new mode dubbed Road to Glory will also be added. This allows players to take their MyCareer players online to battle other players for pay-per-view spots.
This mode seems interesting as I wonder if the pay-per-views will coincide with real time or if this is a precursor to a WWE eSports league.
Create-a-Finisher as well as a GM mode are not in this game despite many fans clamoring for them to be brought back.
A GM mode would be a refreshing change in the WWE franchise as it’d be interesting to manage a whole roster of superstars and drafting them.
Create-a-Finisher was home to some of the wackiest creations I’ve ever made and it was disheartening to see it go.

2K has definitely taken a step in the right direction with the development of the game and with it comes a whole new set of experiences for fans to enjoy.
