They are really getting me hyped for this game, and I really haven't gotten into a wrestling game in a good while. Loved this promo video, and I definitely want to be a Paul Heyman guy

2K just released this info so I figured I would put it in here instead of making another thread.

Since its debut in WWE 2K15, MyCareer mode has allowed players to experience the evolution of a WWE Superstar from NXT novice to absolute legend. In WWE 2K17, that journey is the most advanced and compelling yet created. Watch the trailer above to see MyCareer in action narrated by Paul Heyman, advocate of WWE 2K17 cover star, Brock Lesnar. Read on to dig deep on more details and advances headed to MyCareer.

Jump ahead to the main roster if you’re good enough
In past MyCareer iterations (and in real life), new WWE Superstars start off at the WWE Performance Center, debut on NXT, and work their way up to a spot on Raw or SmackDown. Now, if you prove your exceptional skills in the opening tutorial matches in NXT, head trainer Matt Bloom will offer to fast track you to the main roster. If you need work, he’ll recommend you remain in NXT and develop further.

Become a Paul Heyman guy
As you rise through the ranks of WWE, the legendary Paul Heyman will take notice and attempt to take you under his wing. He’ll offer long term challenges like holding a title for an in-game year with the promise of a big payout. Impress him enough and he may bestow one of WWE’s biggest honors – becoming a Paul Heyman guy. Accept and you’ll have The Beast Brock Lesnar on your side along with Heyman’s incomparable crooked ringside manager skills. Refuse and Heyman will release The Beast on your ***.

Captivate the fans with the new Promo Engine
Anyone who’s watched even 10 minutes of WWE programming knows that talking and charisma are just as important as in-ring skills. With the debut of the Promo Engine in WWE 2K17, players will be able to experience this vital aspect of sports entertainment in a whole new way. Promos can be slotted into various segments of the show so you can decide the best time to talk about how great you are or call out a rival. Once your promo begins, you’ll have several talking points to choose from and a limited time to decide. As you make choices throughout your promo, a performance meter will show how effective your words are with the audience. Whether it’s rapturous cheers or thunderous boos, the more extreme the reaction you incite the better, boosting your face or heel rating, popularity, and bank account.

Engage in deeper rivalries
The Promo Engine allows you to take rivalries deeper than ever before. Call out anyone on the roster in your promo and if their displeasure with you is high enough they’ll come out and respond to the challenge. Escalate the feud enough and they’ll beat you down during backstage interviews, attack you mid-entrance, ruin your match in progress, or beat you down after a match with someone else. Of course, you can repay your rival with all of these tools as well. Rivalries now span multiple months of pay-per-views and have a definitive winner and loser. Beating your rival in the ring and on the mic will provide boosts to VC and popularity.

Earn more than one title
Winning a WWE championship is one of the greatest achievements you can accomplish in the business. But why stop with just one? Players can now hold two titles at the same time if they’ve got the skills.

Get a piece of the merch royalties
For the first time in MyCareer, players can make VC off of their merchandise. Design a shirt and wear it on a show as entrance or in-ring gear and fans will buy it based off of your popularity rating and skills in the ring and on the mic. This provides an alternate income stream if you decide to defy The Authority’s commands for a match that may involve unpopular actions and losing. You can play your way and still earn VC without feeling the sting of lost bonuses from Triple H.

Sounds good. I might try and give it a better shot this year. I never made it past NXT #1 Contender in 2K16 because I got tired of fighting Simon Gotch on Superstars a million times before ever making it to the title match.

This all sounds fantastic!!! Still wanna see the promo engine in action but i cannot wait!!

Reed is comin' atcha!

Wow. We can make merch income this year. That's pretty sweet, and will make me create more shirts for sure!

One thing though. Up above it says Raw or Smackdown...did they somehow incorporate a decent split for the game with what they have? Or else we would be on Raw AND Smackdown, just a thing to read into.

Looks like it could be fun. Hope they got this right. I just stopped playing last year's career mode it was so painfully boring and repetitive. Never even made it to the main roster last year.

Would be cool if you can recruit other wrestlers to join you and Lesnar, create a Heyman Guy faction and be able to hold all the titles within in the group. I know your wrestler can hold two titles, so would be a unique aspect to it all

I'll buy this game again when the Royal Rumble can handle more than six guys at a time.
