WWE 2K14 Create-a-Wrestler Tips


WWE 2K14 features a very impressive roster of wrestlers, with over 80+ current superstars, Legends and Divas ready to hit the ring – with even more being added later via downloadable content. Still, there’s always the yearning to expand the roster, whether it’s with wrestling greats that aren’t with the company (we’re looking at you, Colt Cabana) or the yearning to make yourself into a wrestling guru.

Not to worry. WWE 2K14 comes with a number of create-a-wrestler options that allows you to create wrestlers from the deepest corners of your imagination. Want to bring the icon Sting over from Impact Wrestling? You can do so – albeit unofficially – and pit him against the Undertaker, if you prefer. That’s just one of the thousands of wrestlers you can put together here.

The number of create-a-wrestler slots for WWE 2K14 has doubled since last year, with 100 spots available to store your grapplers. That provides insurmountable expansion, and more opportunities to “run wild” with what you can put together.

Here are some tips to help get you started…

How do I get started in WWE 2K14′s customization mode?

There’s no better place to start from the ground up. You can use a general default model and tweak everything from body size to strength to facial features with just a few tweaks from the menu. WWE 2K14′s customization engine is amongst one of the deepest found in a video game – and for this year’s edition, 2K Games even went the extra mile.

For the first time ever, you can use certain wrestlers as templates for Create-a-Wrestler mode, including John Cena, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The “Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels, the Rock, and the Undertaker, among a few others. So, if you really feel like adding some bulky body weight to Daniel Bryan, you finally can – even though you can’t shave off that massive beard of his. While you’re at it, you can give C.M. Punk some saddlebags in the legs and make his knee kicks really count for something. (Just don’t tell him when you see him in person, he might not be fond of the extra pounds.)

The body and face features aren’t the only things you can adjust. You’re also able to use custom logos for attire, as well as other outfits that you can mix and match. So, if you want to modify that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin skull shirt so badly, now it’s at your disposal. Once you save a dream outfit, you can keep it with your wrestler through all the game’s modes, if you prefer.

How do I Style and Profile?

Appearance isn’t the only thing you can tweak with your wrestlers. In WWE 2K14, you can also create a custom entrance and finisher for them, even going as far as setting up a theme for them to enter to – with so many available from the World Wrestling Entertainment universe. You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen C.M. Punk come out to a modified Triple H theme. It’s a little ridiculous, but plenty of fun.

The modifiable finishers go deep as well. You have a number of moves that you can choose from, whether you want to set up a face or leg-based submission or a technique that’ll really knock the wind out of your opponent. Ever want to see what John Cena can do with monstrous hands and the mother of all chokeslams? Here’s your chance.

How do I Add a Belt to My Created Wrestler?

The create-a-championship options have really opened up alongside the wrestling ones in WWE 2K14. In prior games, you could only adjust the colors of certain titles. This time around, though, you can create your own championship from scratch, including adjustments to front panels, side panels and the general colors of the belt. This is a grand opportunity to recreate the long-lost Hardcore championship that existed in the early 2000′s for the company – or maybe a better Divas title, if you’re not too fond of pink.

A Good Wrestler’s Gotta Have Enemies

Finally, with your wrestler, you can create a rivalry with a fellow wrestler right off the bat. Just find out who you want to get into a campaign with – selecting from a variety of male and female superstars, depending on your wrestler’s gender – and then start lining up events in the WWE Universe mode. The more you get on your bad side, the better your rivalry will be down the road when your “big match” comes. If you like, you can also select what kind of match and venue your rivalry will take place in – or create your own arena from 20 new selections (which we’ll cover in our forthcoming WWE Universe special).

Why Be Normal? Go Nuts

With Create-a-Wrestler, you’re not just stuck modifying the small things on a wrestler. You can go nuts and create people out of the blue. Prima Games staff! Evil clowns! A zombie wrestler, if you’ve got the facial features down. For that matter, bring back Kurt Angle! The choices are yours, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with.
