About WWE '13

Positioned to offer the most authentic, extensive and fervent experience to date, WWE '13 will transform gameplay through WWE Live TM, a brand-new audio and presentation system designed to produce the most authentic and vibrant commentary, sound effects and crowd participation levels ever heard in a WWE videogame.  In addition, players will experience the atmosphere, spectacle and fervor of a WWE live event through attention-grabbing Spectacular Moments, including ring breaks and barricade crashes. 

WWE '13 will also debut a franchise-first single player campaign based on an unparalleled and groundbreaking period in WWE history: the "Attitude Era."  Set during a time of pure raucousness, grandiose personalities and colossal revolution, players will focus on eight purveyors of attitude during the famed television "Monday Night Wars," including WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Predator Technology TM 2.0, driven by new animations, transitions and modified controls, will return to deliver intelligent, fluid and engaging WWE action, resulting in a smoother gameplay experience than its predecessors.  As well, the popular career-style mode, WWE Universe, will dynamically introduce matches, alliances, rivalries and unpredictable moments based on player decisions along the path toward becoming a WWE champion.

WWE '13 will feature the franchise's industry-defining Creation Suite, enabling players to develop and customize Superstars, entrances, arenas, finishing moves, storylines, highlight reels and more, as well as share and download creations with others from around the world.  Furthermore, they will compete with a vast array of WWE Superstars and "Attitude Era" luminaries from the largest roster in franchise history, including cover Superstar CM Punk, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, Sheamus®, Undertaker®, Mankind TM, Chris Jericho®, Big Show®, Mark Henry®, The Miz® and Mike Tyson (the latter available via pre-order through participating retailers while supplies last).  Along with to-be-announced features, a comprehensive roster reveal, downloadable content and big surprises, WWE '13 is poised to live a revolution all its own.
