WWE 13
First WWE '13 Screenshots Leak Onto the Square Circle

It looks as though this year, WWE '13 will be going with CM Punk as its cover star and focus after last year saw Randy Orton posing for the box art. And these first leaked screenshots also go heavy on the straight-edge action, showing CM Punk performing some of his high risk moves.

These nine leaked screenshots come from, which also carries a description for this year's iteration in THQ's popular wrestling franchise. Apparently, WWE '13 will be bringing a grittier attitude into the ring, as well as an all-new story mode.

"Relive the Attitude Era of WWE in an all-new, breakthrough, story mode," reads the blurb. "The new WWE Live presentation system features a completely overhauled audio system and Spectacular Moments. WWE ’13 will be the boldest, smoothest, and most immersive, WWE simulation to date."

So there you have it. First last week's leaked WWE '13 video and now this. WWE '13 is set for release on November 1st, 2012. You can check out the first nine screens in the gallery, and a handful of the shots featuring the likes of Big Show, Chris Jericho, Mark Henry, Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin below. And is that Mankind that Stone Cold is stomping?

Same as every year I see the game graphics and I think this looks terrible, but i'm a fan so I end up getting it day one and dislike it for a few hours until i get used to it then I can't put it down.

Then a few months after release I suddenly stop going on it.

Get Team AKI back and then we can talk. (They made WCW World Tour, WCW vs NWO Revenge, WWF Wrestlemania 2000, WWF No Mercy) Best wrestling games ever made! The closet they ever got to those days was with WWE Day of Reckoning 1 and 2. I would love to play those types of games again.

WWE Day of Reckoning 1 and 2 were fab.........well said Cinderkin. These games on the other hand seem to be getting progressively worse. Couldn't stand WWE 12 so a bit dubious about this to say the least

I'm psyched for 98'/99' Undertaker! Maybe the New Age Outlaws & some other surprise "WWF" appearances.

The classic 97' bare-minimum Titantron is a welcome addition, I'm sick of all the Overly ridiculous LED-vomited Stage/titantron set-ups anymore. I remember when PPVs entrances were just a curtained hole in the wall with the PPV logo above the doorway. Back when Only Royale Rumble, Wrestlemania & King of the Ring got some slightly unique Entrance set-ups but that was it.

I made the mistake of buying WWE12 day one, and that game was a bugged out nightmare.

On top of that, the playability of the game once you complete the achieves is sadly like every other version of years past, worthless.

I just don't see picking this up.

I want a RPG kinda thing for your "Create A Wrestler" because it could span your single player play for quite a long time..I want a game where you start say on NXT and work all the way up as the Main Event guy at WrestleMania..I doubt we will ever see it but if we do, that would be fantastic...

Plus the biggest thing, FIX THE DAMN SERVERS! WWE12 servers were terrible

Spot on #24.........seeing as how NXT is suppossed to be for rookies trying to make a name for themselves that could work perfectly. That's what I always liked about the old Reckoning start off as a nobody and have to work your way up the greasy pole so to speak

Why not just go a step beyond that and make it to where you start in FCW and have to earn your gimmick and such? Then go to NXT and earn a spot on the main roster? From there you have to be drafted and work your way up the ranks from jobber to midcarder to main eventer?

That could also work. I know it kinda removes the essence of the recent games but as said before if they had more RPG elements that'd be great. So for each fight you win on your way to Wrestlemania you get exp to put into things like Strength/Speed/Grapples etc.

I know they kinda did that in SVR 07 but it just didn't work all that well I found

@29, Considering I have not played a WWE game since Smackdown vs. Raw 2009, I wouldn't know who was in the game, but rather than being helpful and merely correcting me, like # 18 did, you acted like "Mr. Internet Hardass" and had to prove what a pompous douche you are. You are a sad and pathetic waste of life and I hope that some day you find a reason to wake up in the morning. Get help dude, seriously.

Here's to hoping that this will be a huge improvement over what 12 was. I also wish they made the Stone Cold model look a lot less like a gorilla.

i would love for a WWE allstars 2 i grew up on the federation years so the wrestlers of that time will have a bigger place in my heart than the attitude era. Although them hell in a cell matches were great along with inferno TLC and boiler room matches

I agree they get samey after a while but its been announced that this will have 32 attitude era wrestlers!!

32! That means it wont just be major players like Mankind and Rock but must have some mid carders like Val Venis, Godfather etc

This excited me personally!

It's great to hear they're adding the Attitude Era guys. I loved playing WWF Attitude on my N64. I hope they fix up some glitches, servers and a few other things as well. I'd really love to see a story mode where you start in FCW and work your way to the top like a few people mentioned before. I'm sure the story mode will be good if if they put the Attitude Era guys in the mode. I'm not sure if I'll buy it day one yet or just get it for Christmas.

WWE 12 was horrible. Thank the Gamming Gods for Gamefly because I would have been pissed if I spent $60 on that garbage. Bring back whoever made the WWF games for the N64, SVR06 for the PS2 or SVR07 and 08 for the 360, those were the best.

WWE 12 is ok but not fantastic. Graphics look low res in this video trailer. I knew it is early but let hope Yuke's fixes better graphics in developing.

So glad is that Attitude Era is back. I alway wish THQ stick it's what gameplay and controls from WWF No Mercy and WWF Wrestlmania on N64. :)
