Just a few days before WWE and 2K Sports have their big roster reveal, game play footage for WWE 2K15 has been leaked. A fan that was at this week's Gamescom convention in Germany was able to grab gameplay footage of WWE's first venture into next-gen systems. The video features an entrance from "The Viper" Randy Orton, as well as parts of a match against Cesaro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A19iJA-G40o It looks as if the game will feature a much more realistic pace and in-ring movements. In order to do this, 2K brought in a ring crew member to ensure motion capture went smoothly, just like how you would see things play out on WWE TV. They also had ROH star Jay Lethal participating in the motion capture for the game. In addition to this, 2K Sports had both Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole participate in over 30 hours of commentary for the game. A new screenshot has almost emerged, WWE superstar Goldust posing on the ring ropes.
