What we've seen of WWE 2K19 so far suggests a game rife with graphical inconsistencies. Some of the textures found in scenes away from the arena look unacceptably poor for any new release, let alone one with as hefty a budget as this, and a handful of the character models still look off. Conversely, everything in and around the ring looks gorgeous, with the developers once again tightening swathes of nuts and bolts for a clean, crisp visual experience.
This part of 2K's presentation hasn't undergone significant change in years, but this year's comes complete with a couple of filters that should appease anyone sick of looking at the same old game
Cel-shading is the first, and it looks great, transforming 2K19 into a wrestling simulation played through a Borderlands-esque lens. Showcased in IGN's features video, it looks incredibly smooth, and while completely unessential, it provides a welcome break from the series' usual appearance.
Unfortunately, the same can't be said of 2K19's second visual filter...
