One of the major things returning to WWE 2K23 is advanced custom entrances, meaning you can once again make your entrance entirely unique to your custom superstar, rather than using a template.
Another major feature is the revelation that custom arenas can now be used in online games for the first time ever, meaning you can battle your mates in your very own custom ring.
All things considered, the WWE 2K23 Creation Suite looks set to take things to the very next level.
MyGM New Features
MyGM is one of the most popular modes in the history of the WWE 2K franchise. The game mode made its highly anticipated return in WWE 2K22 and fans quickly fell in love with it.
This game mode allows players to step into the role of a WWE General Manager. Players can do everything a WWE GM can, such as drafting a roster, signing wrestling free agents, choosing various match types, the arena locations, and much more. Defeating the rival GMs by having the best ratings out of all the brands is the main goal.
WWE 2K23 MyGM brings us plenty of new exciting features, that will allow users to truly immerse themselves in the GM role. These changes will also massively improve users' game experience.
In WWE 2K23 MyGM, we will have five new GMs. Superstars Xavier Woods, Tyler Breeze, and wrestling legends Eric Bischoff, Kurt Angle, and Mick Foley, will be in the game mode. Players will also be able to create and play with their own custom and unique GM.
Two New brands were added to MyGM, with players now being able to manage NXT 2.0 and WCW. WWE 2K23 MyGM also added more than ten new match types, including Triple Threat, Steel Cage, and Iron Man.
MyGM allows up to four players to compete in a local environment. With the addition of new Seasons and Seasonal Challenges, the game mode now offers great replay value.
Roster shake-ups will be available throughout the season, making the game mode even more interesting. Another new feature added this year is the Slammy Awards. They will be awarded at the end of each season, forcing GMs to step up their game if they want to secure these prestigious awards.
The Keepers feature is arguably the most important new addition to the game mode. Keepers will allow GMs to retain some of their superstars ahead of the next season's draft.
The Hall of Fame is also making its way into MyGM. GMs that are capable of earning all ten Hall of Fame trophies, which are won by completing Seasonal Challenges, will secure their place in the WWE Hall of Fame.
WWE 2K23 New Features
In terms of new features for WWE 2K23, the main standout addition is War Games, the much-loved match type that has returned to WWE in recent years.
This double-ring cage match has been a huge fan-favourite since it returned in NXT and has seen some amazing matches.
It might be a little complicated and chaotic in WWE 2K23, but that is part of the fun!
That being said, whilst it may not be a totally new concept, the new Showcase mode starring John Cena is sure to bring some excitement to this new release.
WWE 2K23 War Games
War Games can either be a 4v4 or 3v3 match, with superstars entering the ring at chosen intervals. It's set inside a steel cage, with two rings placed side by side. Players can only win the match when all the participants from both teams are in the ring.
This mode can be played online and offline, meaning you can earn major bragging rights against your mates.
War Games was the standout feature that we got to experience in our first look at WWE 2K23, you can check out our thoughts here:
