    New Features

    • A new physics engine has been built for the game. When a Superstar goes through a table, the area and force of impact will change the animation. The table will also crumble in line with the impact. Such as if the opponent is thrown through the side of the table the table in buckle and fall instead of breaking.
    • A new weapon system is in place. Weapons will break depending on where it is impacted. Weapons can also be used in new ways; for example, a chair can now be thrown at an opponent.
    • Players no longer have to grind levels for their created Superstars. All points will be available as soon as you create your Superstar.
    • The most requested match upgrade has finally been addressed. The Hell in A Cell match now has a larger cage similar to its real life counter part and you now have the ability to use weapons within the match. You are also now able to send your opponent through the cell which will also use the new physics engine. The door from the cell is gone with only way out being to do a "Cell Finisher" in which you throw your opponent through the cell.
    • WWE Universe Mode. Gone is the Career mode of old. In its place is the living WWE Universe mode. When turned on, the game will automatically create a show with a match card based on the rivalries and friendships that you have in place, in which you can adjust to your liking. The game will remember your changes for future shows. It also plays cutscenes before, during and after your matches. These cutscenes are based on many factors such as if you have a rivalry with an opponent, a title mach coming up, etc. This mode can be turned off.
    • In Ladder and Money in the Bank Ladder matches, instead of waiting for the belt meter to empty, the player will engage in a minigame which requires in pulling the right thumbstick in a certain direction. Also winning this match in WWE Universe mode will allow you to cash in the contract at any time for a title match.
    • Road to WrestleMania has been greatly overhauled, allowing you to play as one of these WWE Superstars: John Cena, Rey Mysterio, Christian, Chris Jericho, or the Undertaker . Road to WrestleMania now allows you to roam backstage and interact with other WWE Superstars and pick fights at will. But when you enter the ring, it takes the same form as previous years with matches and story segments happening in front of the crowd.
