It’s been nearly a whole year since WWE 12 hit consoles and what a year it has been. It represented one of THQ’s greatest WWE video games in years and in one high-risk manoeuvre (an entirely new game engine in the form of the Predator technology) addressed any concerns long standing fans had for the future of the franchise.
Well now the dust has settled and in the wake of this resounding success all eyes turn on Yuke’s and THQ once again as they get ready to hopefully hit another finisher with WWE 13.
Last week WhatCulture was invited to take part in THQ’s summer showcase in which we were given a full presentation of their next sequel in action followed by some much anticipated hands-on play time. While the build we were able to play wasn’t fully completed at the time, we can tell you now that it was still a pretty special experience.
Some of the improvements Yuke’s have implemented into WWE 13 are just staggering; many of them are complete firsts for the series while nearly all of them build on not only the successes of WWE 12, but on the successes of the franchise as a whole.
WhatCulture! 3:16 says WWE 13 just whooped our ass. And here are 10 reasons it’ll whoop yours too.
