The Women’s Revolution is coming to WWE 2K20. 2K’s latest annual wrestling game will be fronted by Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns, and, after years of fan requests, female superstars are will finally be playable in MyCareer and get their own Showcase. The Showcase will be entitled The Women’s Evolution and will trace the careers of the WWE Four Horsewomen (Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Bayley, and Sasha Banks) as they rise from NXT to the main roster and the main event of WrestleMania. You can check out a fun live-action teaser featuring Lynch, Reigns, and a host of WWE Legends, below.

Aside from the full integration of female wrestlers, it seems like WWE 2K20 will be fairly similar to WWE 2K19, with last year’s new arcade-style Towers returning. The game will also be taking a slightly different approach to DLC, with “WWE 2K20 Originals” – new Showcase content that will be rolled out on a regular basis post-launch. I thought WWE 2K19 was a decent step in the right direction, but more improvement was needed, so hopefully 2K aren’t resting on their laurels this year. You can check out a quick WWE 2K20 overview video featuring Xavier Woods and some first gameplay, below.
