First ‘WWE 2K18’ gameplay trailer released

2K has served up the first gameplay trailer for “WWE 2K18.”

The “Burn it Down” trailer features a look at several WWE superstars in action, including pre-order bonus character Kurt Angle. The highlight for me was the backstage action, which included Shane McMahon delivering an elbow drop from the top of a production truck. I can’t wait to try that for myself.

“WWE 2K18” launches Oct. 17 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Players who pre-order the game can start playing four days early, on Oct. 13.
