Although Bray Wyatt’s new persona, “The Fiend,” didn’t have a sanctioned match until August 11’s Summerslam, you will be able to play as him in WWE 2K20 in the first Originals pack titled “Bump in the Night.” The new addition to the wrestling game series mashes horror and wrestling.
While WWE 2K20 Originals Mode was mentioned in the first press release for the upcoming October game, everything about the new mode was cryptic, until now. The game will have its traditional Showcase Mode–this time focusing on the Four Horsewomen–and the first originals pack will bring a creative element to the series, combining WWE Superstars with famous monsters to create stories you would never see on weekly WWE television.
Those who pre-order WWE 2K20 will get the WWE Originals pack titled “Bump in the Night.” If you don’t pre-order the game, the first Originals pack will be available to purchase for $15.
There is a lot of content coming with the first WWE Originals pack. The main focus is the Showcase Mode, with an original story revolving around Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor. Bray Wyatt is “The Swampfather” and has become incredibly powerful and the embodiment of the swamp itself. Wyatt tries to recruit Finn Balor into his family, but Balor has to fight his way out.
Aside from the aforementioned “The Fiend,” one of the highlighted characters for this mode is Braun Strowman. He may not have his own story or 2K Tower, but he’ll be one of the monsters you’ll have to battle.
“You have a chance to play as Braun Strowman and his character is done like Frankenstein, Frankenstrowman,” Strowman told GameSpot. “And it’s going to allow you to cause even more destruction than you’ve been able to cause with me, the Monster Among Men, in the past. It’s a new feature in the game that isn’t the normal wrestling that you’d seen so many times. WWE 2K has been able to deliver special features for more content, more playability, doing different things in the game, so there’s so many evolutions of everything in our sports industry that we’re staying ahead of the curve and bringing more to the table than anybody else does in this business.”
For the Bump in the Night pack, aside from this horrific Showcase Mode, Towers returns to WWE 2K20. This time around, Bump in the Night will feature numerous Towers revolving around horrific versions of WWE Superstars battling their way to victory. There are five story towers being introduced in this first pack, and in total, there will be 10 playable horror-themed characters–in addition to “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. Bump in the Night will also deliver new arenas and parts for Create-a-Wrestler Mode. Check out all the content for the pack below.
