WWE 2K16 – Shane O’Mac Added To Roster

Why beat around the bush here? More of the massive WWE 2K16 roster was revealed yesterday, via IGN, and the biggest one (as far as we’re concerned), has to be the inclusion of Shane McMahon. The only thing that’ll make this better is if we can make him drop elbows of the top of the Titantron. Oh man, I really hope that’s what his OMG maneuver is!

For those unaware, WWE 2k16 is set to feature the largest roster ever for one of these games, with over 120 playable characters. That means there are still plenty of names left to add to this.

That includes this guy, who is only available as a pre-order bonus (it won’t be too long before he’s up on PSN or X-Box Live as DLC).

There are also some gameplay changes coming.

From Wikipedia:

“Reversals have been changed so players have a set amount of reversals per match, preventing players from spamming reversals all match. There are no loading screens between entrances, and players have the ability to attack other wrestlers during their entrance. Referee and manager AI has been improved. Pins and submissions have been reworked and improved, with a new system replacing the previous one, allowing for fairer breakouts and newer animations have also been added.”

My favorite part of all that is the fact that you can attack your opponent during their entrance. I am definitely going to use that.

Now, to finish up, here is Dude Love’s entrance, as animated for WWE 2K16:

So, if I really wanted to, I could put Dude Love, The Terminator, Finn Balor, and Shane McMahon into a Fatal 4-Way? Sold.

This game is going to be awesome.
