Last week we showed you the leaked WWE 13 trailer along with an October 30 release date. Just hours ago on Monday night Raw, WWE has now made the WWE 13 game official, confirming CM Punk as its cover star with one interesting new twist.
If you missed RAW, we can tell you that CM Punk celebrated in ring as the official box art was shown for the Xbox 360 version of the game. It is the same image that featured at the end of the trailer, which WWE confirmed on RAW will get its official showing on IGN later this week.
The box art for the game confirmed one interesting twist though – the inclusion of a WWE ‘Attitude’ logo in the top right hand side. For those of you that are unaware, it means that the game will feature elements of the old Attitude Era that became so famous between the late 1990s and the early 2000s.
It also explains why Stone Cold Steve Austin featured in the trailer, as most of you should be well aware that he was a prominent figure in this era, along with the likes of Degeneration X and The Rock. Speaking of DX, it also connects the dots when Road Dogg recently confirmed on Twitter that he and Billy Gunn did voice overs for the game. It’s obviously early days yet folks, but we could be looking at a full blown Attitude Era story mode in the game which will mimic the events that happened on Raw all those years ago.
Although it is not the return to the Attitude Era on TV that wrestling fans want to see so badly, how do you feel now that WWE are trying to recreate some of their past magic on WWE 13? Do you think it is an indication that they are close to moving away from the PG Era for good? We’ll let you know when new gameplay is released. In the meantime, tell us what Attitude Era wrestlers and story lines you would like to see in the game. Booker T & Goldust anyone?
