Many wrestling fans may have been disappointed from 2K’s recent announcement that there won’t be WWE 2K21, but the company has now rallied back with an all-new title named WWE 2K Battlegrounds.

In contrast to the main WWE 2K titles, which largely simulate wrestling to a more realistic level, the new game takes an arcade-styled approach to provide a more cartoonish and casual experience. It’ll feature wrestlers both past and present, including The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Becky Lynch, John Cena, and Charlotte, and the over-the-top gameplay allows you to use these characters to throw opponents into the mouth of an alligator or pull off other super moves like a shoryuken.

“Let’s begin with a surprise… We’ve got two words for you: NEW GAME!” says 2K. “We’re thrilled to introduce you to WWE 2K Battlegrounds, a completely new WWE gaming experience that will feature arcade-style action and over-the-top Superstar designs, environments and moves. We’re focusing on social pick-up-and-play fun, but with plenty of depth for those who want to get way into it.”

There’s currently no precise release date for the title, but it will release sometime this autumn. For now, check out the teaser above.

Elsewhere in gaming, The Last of Us Part II has received a new release date.
