It’s pretty complicated to talk about, but you’re right, it’s like exhibition mode with story elements tied in, and all the while, the game keeps track of everything going on. In years past, you just played exhibition matches, but they were inconsequential. But now, if you turn WWE Universe on, the game will keep track of wins and losses and you’ll see various wrestlers move up and down in the rankings. Teams are going to form, allies and enemies are going to form, so now, these exhibition matches actually mean something, and to top it off, you’ll see a lot of cool cut scenes that will add to the storyline of the Universe that is playing out around you.
There will be a lot of surprises, that’s for sure, and we have four locations where you’ll see the cut scenes. You’ll see cut scenes when the guy is doing his entrance. You’ll see a lot of the interference happening inside the ring when your rivals get in on the action. Your enemies might pop up after your match during your victory scene and double team you with chairs. You’ll see divas get mixed up in this. You might get carried off in a stretcher. There are just a lot of cool moments that we didn’t have before and it really replicates the WWE experience.
