2K just revealed the first details for WWE 2K20, featuring cover "Superstars" Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns. In addition to being the cover athletes for this year's entry into the annual wrestling franchise, they will also serve as "ambassadors for WWE2K20's worldwide marketing campaign." This campaign has been dubbed "Step Inside" and invites players to see and experience "new and exciting challenges in the virtual ring."

WWE 2K20 is currently slated to be released on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Those that pick up either the Deluxe Edition or Collector's Edition will get various in-game bonuses like a playable Chyna, Hulk Hogan (...really?), Mankind, and The Rock.

2K says that WWE 2K20 is being made in direct response to fan feedback and will, as a result, include several franchise firsts. These include streamlined gameplay and a variety of popular game modes. There is the story-driven 2K Showcase: The Women's Evolution that will follow the careers of the Four Horsewomen (Becky Lynch, Bayley, Charlotte Flair, and Sasha Banks). Controls are now also streamlined, allowing new players to jump into the game more easily while still allowing experienced players to "enjoy a challenge."

MyCareer will allow both male and female Superstars along with Mixed Tag matches. WWE Towers also returns with new challenges and a story-driven Tower that focuses on the career of Roman Reigns.

WWE 2K20 is also introducing a "new service model" called WWE 2K20 Originals. This will "deliver a wealth of 2K Showcase add-on content for player exploration beyond the game's initial launch." It's DLC. It's just a fancy way of saying DLC here. Each WWE 2K20 Original will offer a new playable world and its own unique theme. 2K says that the Originals "may require additional purchase(s)." More details on this will be available in the coming months.

"My career has been about breaking barriers and doing what nobody else has done before. Being the first female Superstar on the cover of a WWE 2K video game is no exception," said Becky Lynch.
"As a gamer myself, being on the cover of WWE 2K20 alongside ‘The Man’ Becky Lynch and joining the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena is a huge career and personal milestone for me," said Roman Reigns.
