WWE '12 Launch Trailer Lumbers Towards the Square Circle
Written By
View author's profile

The Rock, Hawk and Animal, Brock Lesnar, Vader, Stone Cold Steve Austin... There are more than a few old-school grapplers coming to WWE '12, and now you can add Macho Man Randy Savage to that list, making for one of the most comprehensive rosters of old and current wrestlers.

THQ has sent out some screens and a trailer for Macho Man, as well as the WWE '12 launch video, which shows all of the spectacle and pageantry of the WWE, with live-action footage switching to in-game action, to demonstrate the new and improved visuals.

Check out both trailers below, featuring plenty of men in pants smackdowns. WWE '12 is entering the ring on November 22nd in North America and November 25th in Europe.

@5 :O I thought Eastenders was a reality show and it was all real. And somewhere in America theres a town where everyone is a cartoon.
Nex you be telling me Santa isn't real....

But seriously this game looks awesome, I know every year everyone (including me) says the new WWE is the best one yet but I was wrong last year, 2010 was better overall but I really think this one will be alot better.
And it focuses alot on making the game your own and the WCW roster is heavily involved in it which is good.

Macho Man should be in EVERY game. From Gears of War to Street Fighter.

Did you know? Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't really a robot! I felt so wrong when I heard!

Looking forward to this. But I personally wish there wasn't so much emphasis on the create side of things

here i was thinking, no wrestling is not fake... its staged!

bout every SD Vs RAW game, last few have been kinda the same. i personally like the creativity, but it does tend to get a little repetetive within a few hours, so i try and plow through it ASAP.

atleast achieves are good this year. only 3 online (play match, upload and rate) and i always use my custom wrestlers. and 60G for creating my character/finisher/ring/entrance =)

YAY! Someone else who *Chortles* Now onto the game, not really sure how I feel about this one. I mean two years straight changing and adding in ring features and now taking it backwards to N64 ways. Don't get me wrong loved wrestlemania2000 but just don't see how this will make the game better. Yes now anyone can pick up a controller and run with the best.

Haven't actually bought one since 09, this might be a good one to get back into. I still think the cover is the best one yet.

I'm looking forward to this.Hopefully the new Predator Tech doesn't turn out to be more overhyped bullshit from Cory Ledesma again as that stuff gets old every year.

I enjoy the games in short bursts, and they're good for a quick time filler every now and again.

" first ever 40 man royal rumble"

I though you could change the settings to do that anyway in preious games, hell i remember RAW2 you could make it a 99 man rumble.

But anyway, looks good and the storylines in the games are usally better than the real thing.

@ #24 - Good call. Ha ha ha, what a dumbass.

OT: It's very cool about Macho Man, but why is there nothing about Mick Foley or Batista being included?

Oh well. Perhaps that's a story for a little closer to launch.

Got this pre ordered just like I did the last one, which I found to be the best since HCTP. Mostly for the fact that you direct your moves. I found it a lot more fun being able to think ways to dish out pain and actually be able to do it. Also the WWE Universe was pretty cool.
Also found being able to put on brutal matches and then make a cool highlight reel was fun. I just hope they've put in the choice to make longer movies this time. That always frustrated me a bit.
Roll on Friday morning when the postie will be my best friend lol!

Damn, if there was any live action footage in there it was hard to notice. I think I saw a John Cena/R-Truth clip switch from live action to gameplay but that was about it. The graphics in this one really are outstanding. Anyone who says it looks like Playstation or whatever, is an idiot or a troll. Everything is improved, lots of new stuff, and this is a better roster then even WWE All-Stars had. This is definately a buy for me, day one.

lol I have the game now what a piece of crap THQ need to update their engine and get better script writers boring much who can remember the good day of SvR2007 when the story was about your created character and none of these crappy road to wrestlemania poop. Now you play as your CAW only through wwe universe which has no story what so ever how boring is that... Plenty

Lol i love how trolls always say "Wrestling is fake", but yet everyone over the age 10 knows that. im glad you finally caught up dumb fks? But to be honest i love the new WWE 12 game. Great graphics. Not a huge story plot but if your really "buying " a wrestling game for the story then your seriously a dumba@# *cough #35 cough* . The only thing that killed me was they said 'Bigger , badder, better'. Yes there are better wrestlers in the roster list.. but SvR2011 had way more to choose from. I was hoping to see Goldberg , Billy gunn and Road dogg ,etc. They need way more tag teams . etc.

Day one for me. Every year since the first Smackdown game and for as long as they make them. It might not be 'cool' but I do actually enjoy WWE. Even now with Henry and Show in the title picture there are others that are entertaining (Dolph, Ryder, Cody, Barrett etc.)

@38 because Brock wanted to do something with WWE but Dana White won't let his fighters wrestle. Not to mention having Brock associated with WWE again is always going to bring more attention to their product.

I will say Best WWE Game Roster Ever: There's Macho, Mick Foley, Vader, Batista, Stone Cold, The Rock, Kevin Nash, Eddie Guerrero, LOD, Brock Lesner, Booker T, Ricky Steamboat, etc., but they haven't done anything 'NEW-NEW' gameplay-wise in a LOOOOONNNNG Time. That wont stop me from getting it though...

Remember When they added the backstage when you used to be able to go up the Ramp walk around outside fight in the street, a restaurant, a store, & a bar, THAT WAS AWESOME! That they took it away & added walking around in the audience, then the next year they added the little cubby hole area in the audience with the scaffolding with a couple weapons & interactive areas.

They shuffled around the Gimmick match-types, Inferno match, Casket match, buried alive match, Pillow-fight match, etc.

They really have not done much new stuff, or bring back the hugely fan-popular 'free roaming' backstage area. that just wouldn't Jive with WWE's PG Era of Programing.
