WWE 2K19 is getting a Mortal Kombat-esque Towers mode

The upcoming WWE title WWE 2K19 is getting a Mortal Kombat-esque Towers Mode where players can take the Superstar of their choosing or a created character to challenge against a Tower of opponents.

This a brand new mode being introduced in 2K19 where each Tower will have their own theme and opponents as well as challenges and stipulations.

Here’s the lowdown:

Expect to battle dozens of opponents across the entire WWE roster, from NXT Superstars to current champions … and let’s not forget about the WWE Legends!

Tower Types
There are two types of Towers in WWE 2K19 that play differently from one another:

  • Gauntlet – In a Gauntlet Tower, players need to complete the Gauntlet entirely in one session. Quitting early or losing a match resets progress back to zero;
  • Steps – In a Steps Tower, players climb their way through a Tower – one match at a time and at their own pace.

Tower Goals
Some Towers feature their own set of goals, including such challenges as reaching a specific score and simply reaching the end of tower.

Some matches add an extra layer of depth in the form of Player and Opponent Buffs. A few examples include starting a match with a finisher or an event starting with health in the red.

Match Types
Towers Mode features many different match types. While there are plenty of normal one-on-one matches, there can be plenty of surprises from match to match. Here are a few match types that players will come across: Steel Cage, Table, Submission, Iron Man, Falls Count Anywhere and more!

2K Towers
In 2K Towers, players choose a WWE Superstar to compete against a wide range of WWE Superstar opponents across a number challenging Towers. Each Tower has a unique theme focused on showcasing the Roster it includes or pays homage to a specific Match Type.

Publishers 2K Games recently talked about how they were going to invest more in the franchise in the future. It’s too early for this mode to be seen as an indicator of that but it’s certainly a step in the right direction.

WWE 2K19 releases on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on October 28 later this year.
