WWE 2K22, new images for 2K Sports wrestling game

WWE 2K22

After a couple of really subdued games, there is a lot of anticipation for the new WWE 2K22. The new 2K Sports wrestling game, in fact, should represent a new beginning for the series, which has definitively passed into the hands of Visual Concepts, after many years of Yuke's management. For this reason the developer has released a new series of high definition images capable of exhibiting the level of detail that should be achieved on Xbox Series X | S and PS5.

In our new preview of WWE 2K22 let's talk about how the developer is looking to revitalize the series, this time relying on Rey Mysterio's familiar face and charisma.

The Mexican luchadores, in fact, will not only be the cover man of the game, but will also be the protagonist of the renewed Showcase mode of the game. A mode that should tell the story of his long and brilliant career, culminating in a world title and a couple title, won alongside his son.

The published images show not only Rey Mysterio, but also other famous WWE faces , in all their glory. These screenshots show remarkable fidelity and a truly admirable level of detail, but we don't yet know if they will create equally convincing gameplay. We are, in fact, still waiting for a real gameplay video: how will this new WWE 2K22 look like?

Rey Mysterio flying high as cover star for WWE 2K22

Rey Mysterio used to fight with his young son for bragging rights when they played wrestling video games together.

The WWE high-flying superstar has plenty to boast about now — he's on the cover of the WWE 2K22 video game set for a March 11 release.

“It’s a moment of great pride, not just for me, but for the generations that come after me. All my people, all the Latinos,” Mysterio said.

Even better, Mysterio is a playable character with his son, Dominik. The younger Mysterio wrestled his first WWE match in 2020 and later became tag-tag team champions with his father.

Mysterio was named the cover star on Thursday as the video game from developer Visual Concepts is back after a two-year hiatus. Mysterio joined Brock Lesnar and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin among the wrestling greats to make the cover.

Mysterio, who was wrestled around the world for various promotions since his 1989 debut, was selected in part to honor his 20-year career with WWE.

The 5-foot-6 Mysterio has long been one of WWE's most popular — and colorful — wrestlers thanks to his collection of masks he wears in honor of the Mexican tradition of lucha libre wrestling. He's won most major matches and championships in WWE, including the Royal Rumble Match in 2006 and the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania later that year. The father-son duo won the SmackDown tag team titles last year.

“This moment that I'm living right now with my son, I never thought I was going to be able to live it,” the 47-year-old Mysterio said.

WWE 2K22 is available for pre-order on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X'S in in both physical and digital formats, and on PC in digital formats. WWE 2K22 features four editions of the game: Standard Edition, Cross-Gen Digital Bundle, Deluxe Edition, and the New World Order 4-Life Digital Edition.

Partners in the ring, Mysterio wants a rematch with his son on a gaming system to prove he's the best in the family in the virtual squared circle.

“It's frustrating to a point because I could never beat Dom,” he said.
