WWE 2K Battlegrounds disappoints with its PS4 trophy list

For the first time, in a long time, there won’t be an annual WWE video game launching this year. Instead of WWE 2K21, the publisher is going in a very different direction with the toonish, arcade style WWE 2K Battlegrounds.


Breaking the yearly cycle which began way back in 2000 in WWF SmackDown! Battlegrounds features over 130 superstars from the current WWE roster as well as legendary wrestlers.

If there’s one thing WWE 2K Battlegrounds does not have an abundance of, it’s PlayStation trophies. Trophy hunters looking for their wrestling fix will be disappointed to see that there are only 13 of them up for grabs with no platinum in sight. It’s a saddening omission and one rare for PS4 games which have a physical release, especially at an asking price of £34.99. You can check the trophy list further down.

Battlegrounds is a notable break away from what WWE gamers are used to sporting action figure-like characters duking it out across fantastical stages, landing some pretty bodacious moves on one another.

It’s also the first time developer Saber Interactive (SnowRunner, World War Z) have taken a crack at the WWE license. At the same, Battlegrounds is pretty similar to what the studio did with NBA for NBA 2K Playgrounds and its sequel, NBA 2K Playgrounds 2.
