There are three options.

HERO, VILLAIN, and OUTSIDER Road To Wresltemania's.

One is a path for all Faces in the game, the other is for all the Heel's in the game, and the third is for Created Characters, i.e: New WWE members that come in and invade the company.

Not sure if CAWs can optionally be take through Hero or Villian mode either.

But that's that.

I like this, actually. This seems to me that they've made three specific stories and each one will probably be longer and more involved than ones in the past. It's more about what road you wish to take, and less about tailing a story around John Cena, or The Miz or whatever.

So the third one is nWo mode. Excellent. Hopefully as a CAW you will either be able to do the heel mode, or else have heel options in the outsider mode. I'm fed up taking the Reaper through RTWM and having to be a good guy.

Sounds intriguing. I'm more likely to play a RTWM if I can play as a CAW, as I never bother with the normal roster.

You could play the last one as a CAW. But inevitably you were a good guy.

They need to have a story mode, in my opinion, someday, where in EVERY match, and in EVERY backstage scene, you have the specific choice presented to you, to act like a heel or act like a face.

Now, I don't think every single action specifically NEEDS to throw you down a different path, but at the least, I think there should be four or five points in a story mode like this, where it adds up your actions and does a little simple math to determine what kind of a cutscene or match, or outcome you'll get based on the majority of your actions.

That would be something i'd be interested in seeing...

But again, this sounds just fine too, with having the option of picking what kind of story you want.

Rumble Roses had something like this, actually. Where you could play the face r heel version of the different characters, and completing certain tasks, would change this person to that other persona.

I on the other hand, would love it if they implimented something like that into the game. A story which dynamically changes with every choice you make. I know it'd be hard work to make and THQ probably can't be bothered to make something that'd take so much time and effort, but I can dream.

I dunno, SYM & HCTP had pretty involved season modes like that. Thing is they always compromise on something else, which is understandable I suppose.

Hope this game is the bollocks, as I just shelled out £40 to play.com for a pre-order, and I'm meant to be saving. I just hope they've fixed the stable feature. Fairly easy to do, right? (when you're a games programmer anyway)

It's something I'm sure they could do. Take Skyrim. No more having the same side quests for every game. Now, the skills you decide on at the beginning talior the sub-quests so you get a different game with different choices. Plus there will be consequences for your actions. Kill an NPC, their family will come looking for you. Slaughter a town known for it's wood crafting and some items drop out of the game. So similar things have been down.

True, true. But games like that are specifically made to play like that. Wrestling simulators not so much. I see what you mean though, it would be nice. Like you could play a year and depending on your choices you could end up at WM competing in the main event as either champion or RR winner, MITB, vs. Undertaker or something. However that's a lot to cram into a game so I dunno how successful that would be. They'd probably have to compromise on a few things.

Some of the old N64 WWE games had branching storylines depending on the choices you made and the outcomes of matches. It doesn't have to be every single event, and ultimately you would only need to end up with half a dozen or so different scenarios. It doesn't have to be as detailed as the likes of Skyrim, just something that gives me options for how I want to influence my character.

They are doing more this year to let you control angles (like interfering in matches in WWE Universe mode) so I think a branching RTWM mode is perfectly possible.

This I do like the idea of. You could take your character down different paths which determine what his actions are and how the crowd react to him, and at certain set points you could make a swerve from one alignment to another which then sets you off down a different route. At the end, there could be five or six different outcomes which are chosen by your alignment when you reach Wrestlemania. It wouldn't take as much time to make as no matter what you do, you always end with one of the five or six different endings. It'd just be everything before that which changes each time you play (but still only has five or six different ways of acting throughout). It'd be a good way to take RTWM.

Jordan, sure those type of games are designed that way. My point was more than there is a game where there is a lot going on but yet they can do it. So there's the opportunity to have something scaled into the wrestling sim.

By the way... Official details are out now. I was wrong again.


It's all one continuous story.

It covers an entire year in WWE, (so it's very long, much longer than previous years).

You start off one third of it as Sheamus, you play through the 2nd act as Triple H, and then the third act as a CAW.

It is indeed, "Villian", "Hero", "Outsider", but it's ONLY Shemus, Triple H, and then CAW, and it's all connected together to form a year long story.
