2K want to make it easier to get more people in your ring!

The latest annual edition of the franchise stalwart WWE 2K is almost upon us. WWE 2K20 will feature an updated roster of everyone’s favourite muscle-bound acrobats but making a return is the ‘Online Lobby’ – a feature that has been missing in recent additions – much to the chagrin of series regulars.

Lobbies will streamline the process of pairing up players and getting them into a match as quickly as possible. If you have an exact online multiplayer match in mind, creating a lobby is the way to go. Select from a wide variety of match types and rules with up to six players. Choose the arena, Superstar gender, and even toggle the restriction to only allow default WWE Superstars (a.k.a. Fair Play).

You can start out in private mode to invite friends and then open the remaining slots to the general public. Once in a lobby together, everyone can voice chat as they select Superstars and the lobby creator makes decisions on the match at hand. Players will now have full visibility on how the match is coming together.

If you just want a ‘quick match’ and to get straight into the action you can browse currently available lobbies that only need one or two participants and jump right in.

As well as the new changes to the matchmaking system some events have also received updates. Road to Glory events now includes female matches for the first time, in addition to male matches, and the new ‘Tonight’s Match’ feature in Multiplayer places you in a new match every day that rotates through match types, rules, genders, and arenas to make it simple to constantly try something new.

WWE 2K20 will be available soon on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
