The Create-A-Match feature now allows players to customise their matches and save them to later exhibit them in the modes of the game.
The modes now available are Quick play, Online, Universe, Creation, MyPlayer, and MyWWE mode. Quick play allows the player to participate in any kind of local matchup. Online mode requires an Internet connection so players can play matches against other players around the word. Universe mode allows players to simulate matches throughout a year of events, which means that they are given the power to create their own WWE universe. Creation mode enables players to create their own custom wrestlers and share their matches on WWE Community Creations. MyWWE mode allows its players to change the settings of their wrestlers and custom characters; this influences their settings in any other mode in the game.
