The biggest addition to this years entry is the long request General Manager Mode. Also known as GM Mode, WWE 2K22 allows players to take control of one of either Raw or Smackdown, and manage their brand to beat their opposite number in the ratings. This includes drafting your roster, poaching stars from your rivals and booking your show all the way from the first show of the year to the main event of Wrestlemania.
That addition will be spoken about more in depth in another article. Let us continue with the main part of the article – WWE 2K22: NWO edition.
