THQ has revealed the new Road to Wrestlemania mode for WWE '12 today, showing the unlockable grapplers you can access in the game, and the three different story strands you can follow, as you edge towards the biggest event on the calendar in sports entertainment.

Every wrestler has their own path to glory apparently, and you'll be able to choose your own on the Road to Wrestlemania, rubbing shoulders with the big boys like Edge, Triple H, Randy Orton, John Cena, Big Show and Kane among others.

There's unlockable wrestlers too, like Hawk and Animal, Eddie Guerrero, Booker T and more. Check out the trailer for a closer look at Road to Wrestlemania, then take a look at 18 new screenshots in the gallery. WWE '12 is out on November 22nd, 2011 in North America and November 25th in Europe.

Can we not have a better graphics engine yet? Sick of the plastic looking wrestlers.

Fighting system needs work aswell.

I hate IGN for that "Winner: Dark Souls" article. Every thread has some idiot posting that non sense.

Back on topic, this game looks better and better. I can't wait to play as my old school favourites, Arn Anderson and Road Warriors. I agree with the above statement, the characters still look like plastic but the character models still looks pretty dam good.

Haven't bought a wwe game with the exception of All Stars in years. But I think I'm going to get this one. Looks like it'll be more fun and I like the inclusion of a bunch of the old school guys.

I want my character to stage a walkout and sign for a fat contract with Hogan's new Kinect game.

TNA's version of this has you play through 40hours of grueling gameplay to get to the main even at Bound for Glory only to have Hogan say you're not ready and then your save file gets wiped.

Haven't played the last 2 years, but I'll be getting this one most def. Sounds like it'll be awesome, and it's got the Road Warriors! (speaking of, RIP Hawk...passed away 8 years ago today)

Bring back Chris Benoit... Yes he murdered his family and committed suicide... It was from a mental condition cause by physical trauma.

Wait so....we can play as anyone as long as their a hero or villian? Or, otherwise? I don't get it. Every other year the stories have been specific to a superstars. The Villain one looks to focus on Sheamus, the Outsider one looks to focus on Triple H, but then the Hero one looks like a couple of different guys. Everyone has a story? Can we use the CAWs we make?

Need more info.

People are still moaning about his game, if you followed it then you'd know it's been completely reinvented compared to smackdown vs raw series and yes there are some attitude era/pre-'pg' era guys and some WCW including Kevin Nash, Booker T, Legion Of Doom, Demolition, Arn Anderson, Eddie Guerrero and even Brock Lesnar.

So as a heads up for anyone wanting more information, I got actual details from an article at

The RTWM mode is going to least at least 18 months and cover 2 Wrestlemanias. You're commited to playing as Sheamus for the "Villian" portion. According to IGN's article, which runs contrary to the trailer, you get attacked by Triple H and take over as him for the "Hero" section of the story. Then at the third act, you can select a superstar for the "Outsider" portion. Either that or you can make a CAW, who will be named Jacob Cass and be voiced by Austin Aries.

i was thinking that just say you pick the game for his RTWM it will give you choices along the way like, tag with CM Punk, Shake his hand but say no, or take him out with a sledge hammer

I don't watch WWE anymore but this game looks awesome. I haven't played a wrestling game in about 4 years. With Brock Lesnar being announced and looking at these screens I think I'm going to have to get this one

They should make it where at the end to Rod to Rastlemania your CAW overdoses on pain meds, steroids, and other assorted drugs.
OT= This will be the first rastle game I purchase since 2008
