WWE has taken its mobile gaming activity up a notch with the launch of a new title that enables players to build and train their own wrestling dream teams before sending them off into the ring to challenge others.
Called WWE Universe, the game has been developed in partnership with Glu Mobile, a studio recognised for its success in bringing sport franchises such as Tap Sports Baseball to the worlds of mobile gaming.
One-touch controls, console-quality graphics, and nearly 700 unique in-ring animations allow players to bring the action of WWE with them wherever they go. The game also features a robust roster of more than 240 Superstars, Legends and Hall of Famers to choose from including The Rock, Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch, Seth Rollins, Kofi Kingston, Ronda Rousey and Andre The Giant.
“WWE Universe is the culmination of Glu and WWE’s shared goal of delivering best-in-class mobile entertainment for players around the world,” said Nick Earl, Glu’s president and chief executive officer.
“Developed by an incredibly talented team of WWE enthusiasts, the game delivers on authenticity and features gameplay elements that create an immersive in-ring experience players will enjoy. We expect this game to expand our user reach globally, bolster our sports genre portfolio, and deliver year round results as a solid Growth Game.”
Brian Flinn, WWE chief marketing and communications officer, added: “With a true passion for WWE and a best-in-class development team, Glu has created a unique mobile experience that will resonate with fans worldwide and enable them to further engage with our brand.”
WWE Universe will allow players to assemble a roster of favourite Raw, SmackDown Live and NXT Superstars – Including Legends and Hall of Famers, engage with authentic storylines, signature moves, chants and music, and explore in-game storylines and content tied to current WWE programming.
