Here's everything we know so far about WWE 2K22 MyFACTION, Showcase, and MyRISE.
Latest - Update 1.06 should fix bug issues
Players have had a lot of trouble getting online and accessing the WWE 2K22 MyFACTION hub. Luckily, we've received a new update that could potentially fix the issue.
The WWE 2K22 Update 1.06 was designed to fix some of the bugs that have caused this issue. However, we did experience a few connectivity issues even after the update.
Of course, this will only be one of many updates to fix bugs as more players log onto the WWE 2K22 servers. We could also see more WWE 2K22 MyFACTION updates.

MyRISE and Showcase Modes
The MyRISE and Showcase game modes are guaranteed to be a favorite along with WWE 2K22 MyFACTION. Prepare for over 50 hours of gameplay in MyRISE this year.
In Showcase you'll walk the same steps of Rey Mysterio, who's also the cover athlete this year. A really cool addition is the full-motion cutscenes that you'll see while completing objectives.
In the above Ringside Report, you'll see these cutscenes in action, delivering a one of a kind experience for all WWE 2K22 players. If you'd like to learn more, head here.

First MyFACTION cards revealed
After a long wait, we're finally getting some official details about WWE 2K22 including the new MyFACTION mode that's arriving this year.
Along with the trailer, the news saw the official 2K website go live, and on it they showed this look at the first WWE 2K22 MyFACTION cards!
We're expecting many more to be revealed, but this confirms a MyTEAM structured system not unlike what we see today in NBA 2K22.
WWE 2K22 MyFACTION makes its franchise debut
WWE 2K22 MyFACTION arrives for the first time ever this year, and the new game mode could quickly become a favorite among players.
While more details won't come until later, we did get our first look and reveal of MyFACTION in the latest WWE 2K22 trailer which you can see below.
MyFACTION is just one of the many new features outlined in the trailer, and it's one that we've learned very little about so far.
However, thanks to a look at a few other games and details we got from Visual Concepts ahead of the reveal, here's what we've learned about MyFACTION.
MyFACTION looks to take cues from MyTEAM & Ultimate Team
This is the official description of WWE 2K22 MyFACTION provided in the press release announcing these features by Visual Concepts:
"In a franchise-first, the all-new MyFACTION puts players in control of building a legendary faction that rivals the iconic nWo. Players will collect, manage, and upgrade Superstars, with weekly events and regular updates"
One key phrase that was added when Visual Concepts previewed the trailer to us ahead of this reveal is that you'll be able to get superstars "from every single era of the WWE."
We've seen extensive use of legends in the past, and it looks like we could have quite a few on the final WWE 2K22 roster.
This collection mechanic definitely feels reminiscent of MyTEAM, the Ultimate Team game mode in NBA 2K22 (also developed by Visual Concepts) which challenges gamers to collect cards of classic and current NBA stars and build a squad with them.
We haven't gotten any indication so far that the card or packs mechanics will be involved in MyFACTION, but they're definitely taking cues with the goal of "weekly events and regular updates" for the game mode in WWE 2K22.
Visual Concepts also confirmed in their preview that MyFACTION will be a single player game mode, and there has been no mention of Online Play so far, but it could be on the table as online competition is a key component of MyTEAM and Ultimate Team modes in Madden 22, FIFA 22, and NHL 22.
Virtual Currency (VC) in MyFACTION
One gigantic piece of the puzzle was provided by Visual Concepts in the preview ahead of this trailer reveal, and that has to do with Virtual Currency.
One of the most controversial WWE 2K22 leaks arrived recently as word spread that Virtual Currency or VC would become a part of the upcoming release, and many worried how it could influence multiple game modes.
Visual Concepts stated directly that MyFACTION is "the only mode in WWE 2K22 where purchasable Virtual Currency or VC will come into play" and that "VC does not offer any sort of competitive advantage or put players in a pay-to-win situation."
While it looks like there will be items of some kind, likely new character unlocks for MyFACTION or special attire, these should all be obtainable by playing the game and earning MyFACTION points with VC just being a speedier option for players who want to spend a little extra cash.
We should learn more details in January 2022 about how MyFACTION will work in WWE 2K22 and exactly what players will be able to spend Virtual Currency on.
