WWE '13 is a wrestling game developed by Yuke's and published by THQ for the Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 platforms.
The debut trailer for WWE '13 is centered around CM Punk inspiring a revolution. The highlight of the trailer is the in-game recreation of the Mark Henry / Big Show superplex that broke the ring in October 2011. Destructible environments seem to be a focus in the game as it appears there are more options for putting opponents through the announcer's table as well as the ability to crash through the ringside barricades.
Road to WrestleMania from previous games has been scrapped in favour of the Revolution theme of the game. The main single player mode will include significant matches and feuds of the infamous and highly successful Attitude Era from the late 1990's, including the 1998 King of the Ring match between The Undertaker and Mankind (Mick Foley) in which Undertaker threw Mankind off the top of the Hell in a Cell structure into an announcer's table 20 feet below. It will also include aspects of the July 2011 CM Punk storyline which garnered the attention of mainstream media which almost lead to Punk leaving professional wrestling, only to become a popular figure in the company and go on to win his first WWE Championship.
WWE '13 will feature the largest roster in the franchise history, including modern superstars as well as many from the "Attitude Era". Superstars active during both periods will see multiple versions of themselves appear in the game (Triple H has 3 incarnations), though it has not been officially confirmed if they will be alternate attires or listed as a separate character.
