This weekend, the debut trailer for WWE 13 was leaked to the Internet. Today Xbox.com shared the first nine screenshots as well as a few gameplay details.
WWE 13's theme is said to be "Attitude." The new story mode will let players relive the Attitude Era, the period beginning in the late 1990s and ending in the early 2000s. It was the hey-day of The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and D-Generation X, among others. It was one of the high points in pro wrestling's popularity so I can't blame THQ for wanting to revisit the era.
The game won't completely neglect the present-day WWE, though. Players will be able to take on the role of many of the present WWE wrestlers as well. CM Punk, who didn't join WWE until well after the Attitude Era was over, is the cover athlete.
The Xbox.com listing outlines a few other features. A WWE Live presentation system will sport a "completely overhauled audio system and Spectacular Moments." The game will support up to four players in offline multiplayer, and up to 12 online. There's also mention of standard game features like downloadable content, leaderboards and voice chat.
WWE 13 will be available on October 30th in North America. The trailer indicated a November 1st launch date for Australia, which might apply to all PAL territories.
