WWE 2K16: New Submission Controls Revealed - Video

UFC's submission mode is carried over to WWE 2K16.

A new video released by 2K Dev shows Bret 'The Hitman' Hart applying his Sharpshooter finisher on the Honky Tonk Man in WWE 2K16. The legendary, five time WWE Champion was one of the many names confirmed in the latest 2K16 reveal earlier this week, where he will be joined by fellow Hart Foundation member Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart and many more Attitude Era stars. The clip demonstrates the new submission system that replaces the old breaking point style we've seen from previous titles. In the new release, a game of cat and mouse ensues as the system used in the UFC games crosses over into the wrestling ring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLXu7WC_5ms Here you see Hart, the aggressor, with a red indicator and Honky with a blue one. If you're applying the hold, you basically toggle R3 and try to catch the opposing man's bar. And if you're the owner of the blue bar, meaning a submission move is being put on you, your job is to get your bar as far away from the red one as possible. If you're the player applying the hold, the longer you can get your red bar to stay on top of the blue one, the more pressure will be applied and the chances of you getting the win are increased. If you're successful, the red circle in the middle will eventually fill out and the owner of the blue bar, the player the hold is being applied to, will be forced to give up. Sound complicated? It's anything but, and is a really fun way to battle out submission holds, especially when you are playing with a friend. It's another little game inside the main game, if you will. This is yet another new feature that indicates WWE 2K16 will be a huge improvement on WWE 2K15. We're certainly in for a treat when the new game is released at the end of October.
