2K has officially revealed when it will launch the much-talked about WWE 2K Battlegrounds, a lighter and more fun approach to the popular world of Wrestling. As with the popular NBA 2K Battlegrounds, you’ll be able to enjoy arcade game mechanics with less realistic graphics.
The game will be officially released on September 18, and will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, we probably won’t have a special version released for the new consoles. However, players who end up buying the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, will still be able to access the game thanks to its retro compatibility.

- Standard Edition – € 39.99 – Bonus: Edge
