Novato, CA – WWE surprised gaming fans this week with the announcement of a new game, WWE 2K17: Creative Edition. Whereas previous edition of the 2K games put fans in the ring, this game will put fans behind the scenes

“Now wrestling fans will finally get to become a part of the creative process,” said Vince McMahon in a statement. “YOU get to write the storylines. YOU get to make the decisions. YOU get to deal with the fallout when I change everything you’ve written. YOU get a nervous twitch every time you hear my voice.”

The game is still in beta testing, but 2K has given insight into how the game will be played.

In “Surviving The First 3 Weeks” gamers will experience all the joys of becoming a Writing Assistant for the WWE. This mode takes place in real-time, so 14 to 18 hours of gameplay are expected. Learn how to go hours without a bathroom break, deal with Stamford traffic, explore the dollar menu at the closest fast food restaurant, and find the most comfortable place to sleep in your office. The final boss will be getting an idea on an episode of Superstars.

The next mode will be “Get Mr. McMahon His Coffee”. Great! Mr. McMahon knows your name! Now it’s up to you to get his coffee. Make sure to add just the right amount of cream or else “You’re fired!”

The third game mode will be staff writing for Smackdown! How fast can you rewrite a script 10 minutes before show time? You’re about to find out! A series of quick time events will determine if your new script is a hit or a dud. Make sure to enter the special DLC code to enable a “comedic segment” to help eat up time.

For the final mode, you will be the head writer for Monday Night Raw. In your toughest challenge yet, you will have to read hundreds of comments on Twitter and Facebook saying how you have no idea what you’re doing. You must dissect comments from people that claim to hate your show, but still watch it every week. Try in vain to get JBL to read his lines! Pretend you’re listening to Michael Cole! And to really immerse the player in the WWE creative experience, WWE Producer Kevin Dunn will personally sit on your couch and loudly eat a sandwich.

Pre-orders of the game have already reached one million with many believing the “Vic Venom” instant add-on to be the driving force.

    I would totally play this!

    • Gold Standard says:

      I wouldn’t play this version, but I have hoped for something like this. Where as the “owner” of Raw or Smackdown, instead of having to actually perform every match to get the desired results, if you could truly put together the story arc, book the winners and losers so that the computer will do it for you, and see if your ideas get the desired crowd reaction. They could use the old “Money you’ve made” system to determine if you are doing well or failing.

      Include tv ratings, PPV buys, house show tickets, and if the workers are happy or not. That I would definitely like to play.

      • Slapps says:

        So , GM mode from the old svr games.
        I agree that this should be a playable mode again. Man i loved that shit.

        • Gold Standard says:

          well the Smackdown vs. Raw games you still had to play the matches if you wanted the desired results. Focus more on what types of storylines to build (to include promos, vignettes, run-ins and such), actually be able to tell the computer to have which person win and lose (can’t always control the action, but the bookers can control who wins), and really focus on the behind the scenes part.

          • ChrisV says:

            There used to be some sort of wrestling game like this on the internet. You could choose your roster, which included any WWE, ROH, or TNA wrestlers of that time (the game was from around 2002). Then, you set up the cards and let them play out. Everything was based on crowd reactions. Wrestlers could complain to you, or actually quit.
            I booked Stevie Richards, who was ranked as lower-card, to be a main-eventer, beating all the current main-eventers, and making him a World Champion. The crowds turned on him, and were booing him out of the building. He would come and complain about how he was being pushed too fast.
            I booked him to squash Kevin Nash. Nash quit after I booked that.
            It was pretty funny.
            WWE creative could probably learn a lot from that game actually!

            • alex says:

              It’s called Extreme Warfare

              • ChrisV says:

                Thanks for that!
                I downloaded it back in 2002, then my hard drive crashed, and I’ve gone through different computers since then, and I could never remember where I found that game.
                I see it is still available, and in new formats also.

            • Johan Lasagnaman says:

              I’m so glad I found that even if I am terrible at it. So bad that when I deliberately booked the worst Raw I could think of I actually got better ratings and reviews than when I tried to play it properly. It featured Heath Slater beating Triple H and Big Show in a handicap match, Bayley destroying Brock Lesnar for his WWE Championship then marrying Batista (which was interrupted by Scotty 2 Hotty), Sheamus winning the Women’s Championship, Eric Bischoff getting fired 3 times in a row and the Miz having 3 titles at the same time.

  2. Jay says:

    I just hope when you choose between male/female characters you don’t have to play “mini-games” with Pat Patterson or Johnny Ace.

  3. RD Reynolds says:

    Couldn’t be worse than WCW Thunder on PS1.

  4. Thomas Moffatt says:

    There’s a hidden feature that can be unlocked where you have to make the Miz seem interesting…

    • John C says:

      1,000,000,000 XP and a WWE contract are rewarded if you can make Roman Reigns into a viable draw that the fans get behind.

      • Thomas Moffatt says:

        What’s the going for being able to form an announce team where you don’t feel like punching two 3rd’s of said team in the trap?

  5. CF says:

    “Live the experience of finding out half your talent failed Wellness Exams! Feel the joy when your new breakout star is found dead in a hotel room with a small pharmacy in his bloodstream! SPECIAL FEATURE: Decide whether to keep running the Pay-Per-View, or not, when the entire live audience just saw someone drop from the rafters like a *&^%$#!ing dart!”

    The Sick Evil Bastard in me wants to see this game, for no other reason than to watch the people who think being a writer for pro wrestling is easy get reduced to sobbing, shivering wreckage….

  6. Raven7309 says:

    For some reason, this headlie reminded me of the “Madden NFL Coach” game released a few years ago for the PS3 and XBox 360.

  7. Geoff says:

    My dream of having a game like this has come true! When where what? How much? And when is the roll out date? Me want! I want to play as Freddie Prinze Jr. A close second was Vince Russo but Freddie is still god in my eyes.

  8. Caveman says:

    Vince Russo in a WWE game? I’d definitely pre-order that!

  9. John Cena says:

    I recommend to buy wwe 2k18.
