Changes are coming to WWE 2K20 and Becky Lynch being the cover star is just the start. In today's WWE 2K20 full reveal, it was confirmed that this year's MyCareer mode would be expanding to include women WWE superstars.
WWE women wrestlers are going to be included across much of WWE 2K20. Not only are the superstars part of the MyCareer Mode, but WWE 2K20 will also be bringing back the popular Mixed Tag matches. Despite being part of WWE 2K18, Mixed Tag matches were absent from WWE 2K19. No reason for the mode's absence was ever provided. Luckily, WWE 2K20 players will once again be able to mix and match their favorite WWE superstars regardless of whether they're men or women.
Also returning after a long absence is the WWE icon Chyna. The last game Chyna starred in was in 2000. Chyna was added to the WWE Hall of Fame in 2019 posthumously, as Chyna tragically passed in 2016. It's fitting that as the WWE 2K franchise begins to make a broader effort to include women, Chyna is once again home.
Then, perhaps most exciting of all, the WWE 2K20 Showcase story mode will be about the WWE Women's Evolution. Last year's Daniel Bryan Showcase was very popular, so WWE 2K20 is bringing it back. Players will experience the journey of The Four Horsewomen, which includes Bayley, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Sasha Banks. The four formed the group as members of NXT, then joined the main WWE roster together and the rest is history.
WWE 2K20 is shaping up to be one of the best iterations in the franchise yet, due to its robust selection of superstars and game modes. In addition to the proactive inclusion of the WWE's women superstars, WWE 2K20 is also bringing back the popular WWE 2K19 Towers Mode. There will even be a story-focused tower tied to Roman Reigns, who's sharing the cover art with Becky Lynch. All that's left to show for WWE 2K20 is whether the gameplay itself is great.
WWE 2K20 releases October 22 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
