2K Games has announced the first batch of 46 WWE Superstars to be included in the extensive WWE 2K18 roster, and that’s not all, because we’ve got to in-game entrance videos for Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson aka The Club and NXT’s SaNity, as well as a batch of new screenshots and the announcement of The Rock being made the Executive Producer for the games soundtrack.

Just by looking at the new screenshots and gameplay videos below, it’s quite clear to see the graphical improvement made over last year’s installment.  However, looking at Nikki Cross’ hair from SaNity, it seems that the old age WWE 2K hair problem still might remain, hopefully I’m wrong though, only time will tell.  You can see the two entrance videos below, as well the stunning new screenshots and Superstar roster images.
